The Magnum Light Phaser is a light gun created in 1987 for the ZX Spectrum computer. It was Amstrad’s last peripheral for the video game console. The Magnum Light Phaser in many ways resembles the Light Phaser, the Sega Master System light gun, released in 1986. It was a Sinclair-branded Far Eastern product which was included in promotional bundles such as the “James Bond 007 Action Pack”, along with a small number of lightgun-compatible games. The light gun is hard wired to the coolest Alarm clock from the eighties: the ball-shaped, space age Panasonic.
