Tele-Games Pinball Breakaway (model 99713)

In 1977, a new type of ball and paddle system was launched: Video Pinball. This game also existed in the arcade under the same name, hence the home versions sold by Atari (Video Pinball, model C-380) and Sears (Pinball Breakaway, model 99713), pictured here. There even was a japanese version, the Epoch TV Block.

See Atari Video Pinball, model C-380 entry for more info. The only differences are the labels, including game names...

We need more info about this console ! If you designed, used, or have more info about this system, please send us pictures or anything you might find useful.



Bought one 5 years ago at a garage sale. Works fine, still has adapter, runs on battereies fine. No strain relief on cable as it exits the case, and there is connectivity issue. Today I will open it up and shorten the cable a little, to remove that section. The pinball games are not that great. Just too blocky, but the breakout is fun. Seems to put out a very vibrant (color) image.

I found one of these like when I was a kid and it is the "Sears" model with the wood looking cover. Do you think this would be a good deal as described for Christmas? I see the Atari one all the time, but not the Tele-Games and it has everything with it. Tell me what you think...$Video_Games$hash$item45ff750439
