Game Info
Overview - Hyperspace is an Asteroids Clone in an Upright Cab. The game is listed here since 26. January 2006.Has been found in the Netherlands.

Description - see Original Asteroids (Atari).
UPDATE 14. October 2006
I got access to the cab now, took pictures and borrowed the PCB for dumping the ROMS and repairing it. The ROMS were no real surprise, the three game ROMs are identical to Asteroids Rev.01, only the Vector ROM at position NP3 is different. ROMs are available here. Using the ROMS in MAME reveals the logo "HYPERSPACE U GAMES" instead of "ASTEROIDS BY ATARI".

Cabinet Types - Upright (Year ???)

PCB(s) - The Main PCB is largely identical to the original from Atari. The test connector for the CAT BOX is missing. The PCB is labeled with "Hyperspace".

Monitor - The Monitor is a Hantarex b/w XY Monitor which is very common for european B/W Vector clones at this time.

Reproductions not known

Spares - Generally have a look at the "Link Collection" section to find sources. I can help out with single items, if you don't find them elsewhere. A non conclusive List is in the "Electronics / Parts" section.
