B > BINATONE > Colour TV Game (model n° 01 / 4931)   


Binatone
Colour TV Game (model n° 01 / 4931)

This pong is one of the many Binatone systems. It is the first of the "Colour TV game" serie and offers 4 pong games (squash, squash practise, football, tennis).

In order to understand how this system fits into the Binatone pong range, here is simplified list of the systems :

TV Master MK IV
TV Master 4 plus 2
TV Master MK 6
TV Master MK 8
TV Master MK 10

Colour TV Game
Colour TV Game 4 plus 2
Colour TV Game MK 6
Colour TV Game MK 10

The TV master serie are black & white pongs (first generation). The Colour TV Game system is the same as the TV Master MK IV except that the games are in colour.

So how to differentiate a Colour TV Game from a TV Master MK IV ? Well first, the name... ;-) The underside and switches of the former are grey while those of the TV Master are orange. The Colour TV Game has also a small 'colour' logo next to its name (upper right).

The paddles are rather small, with one knob each, but are detachable and connected to the system through two small sockets. One interesting feature is that there is a switch to turn sound on / off (great !).
