Model Nr: MC-25
There are four hens. In each corner of the game one hen is sitting on its shelf. They're laying eggs all the time. The eggs are rolling down the shelves and you have to move Mickey Mouse who has a basket in his arms, so that the eggs fall in Mickey's basket.
In Game B eggs fall from 4 drops, whereas in Game A they only fall from 3 drops.
Maximum score is 999 and when the score reaches 200 or 500 points all misses are cancelled.
Cheats and tricks:
Minnie Mouse appears and disappears at 5-seconds intervals. If you miss when
Minnie appears, you only score half a miss. As score
increases, eggs fall with increasing speed, but slow down every 100 points
before increasing in speed again. Try to use the slow points in the game to get
your breath back.
1 Point for every egg Mickey Mouse catches
You get one miss, if you let Mickey Mouse drop an egg. You will only score half a miss (Indicated by a flashing broken egg) if Minnie Mouse appears at the window. Three misses (shown as broken egg-shells with a chick in it) and the game ends.
If you hold in Game A or Game B key the highest previous score will be displayed. If the unit is left as it is after game is over, time display will appear in about five minutes. A game is not interrupted even if TIME key or other game keys are depressed during game playing.
Issue Differences (click to enlarge pictures)
The table will show how to tell the different Issues that were made:
The battery covers seem to have a number on the back, but they seem to vary a lot and I won't even speculate what the difference is.
Sometimes the game and/or box comes with a sticker on the back:
