History and Trivia

The Adventure Vision was a cartridge based, electronic handheld video game that was manufactured by Entex Industries in 1982. It measured about 13 1/4" x 10" x 9" and used one vertical strip of 40 red LEDs and a spinning mirror to produce a screen with a 150 x 40 resolution drawn at 15 frames/sec. There were only four cartridges produced for it: Defender, Turtles, Super Cobra, and an Asteroids clone, Space Force.
