It is a similar label variant to the Taiwan Cooper cart, but it does have some differences:

Interesting indeed! Is the grey space invaders label stuck on separately or is it part of the front label?

the grey part is not seperate. i just tested it and the scrreen does not roll so im guessing ntsc but there is no color for some reason. it is black and white. i tested a normal space invaders and it has normal color. what do you make of this?

My NTSC carts on my PAL TV do the same, so I'm guessing your cart is PAL ;)

BTW, I've seen similar carts to this before. These are obviously pirate carts, but still very rare

It could be a different label variation due to that the one dymus9 has the title surrounded by grey not black

weird I dont think the programmers meant it to be black and white could of been a flaw or something is wrong with the cart :?
