Audiosonic
Tele-Sports IV

This is a typical system using catridges based on the different chipsets developped by General Instruments in the late 70s. Each GI chips was able to generate several games, ball games for a start, then later car racing, motorcycle, submarines, tanks and shooting games.

The system has two detachable controllers with one analog joystick and one fire button each. The control panel is composed of 10 buttons to select the different games offered by each cartridge (10 being the maximum). Difficulty switches, power switch and a start button can also be found. There are also three small buttons labeled "color 1, 2 & 3" which are used to change the display background colour! This is quite an original function on this type of system.

See the Prinztronic Micro 5500 for more info.

Me and my sister had one of these when we were kids. we would have been about 10. It was really basic but I think we only had a b/w telly at the time! the scoring only went up to 15 indicating 4-bit registers! We only had the original pong/hockey/target etc cartridge. I think the target was our favourite game. the little analogue joysticks were a delight and much nicer than the switching digital joysticks that became commonplace soon after. We loved this game, but I think after we got a BBC computer it went under the stairs for a few years before being chucked out.

I had one of these system when I was very young. I spent hours in front of a 14" TV playing pong with anyone who couldn't get away! I remember it being well built, the controllers seemed indestructible. The 'Colour' buttons on the front allowed the player to select a range of colours for the foreground/background. Each button had a predifined combination. Combinations being different for each game, if I remember correctly.
