-Tronica catalog description

Here you can see the hatch which opens up on the back - it serves as a stand and also as a light reflection source.  This game depends upon a strong natural external light source. There is no amplification (a rather cheap but decidely usable design), so whatever light you can find to reflect off the white surface is just barely enough to see the images!
