Note that the Joystick now has 8 little arrows around the joystick movement area (compared to the early joystick).
I also have a second later style box which came supplied with the early style joysticks, which shows that there was a cross over period.
As with the Dragon boxes there was a move towards putting pictures on the box. The box graphics are made up from images used on software covers e.g. Astroblast, Graphic Animator etc..
