Wonder Wizard (model N° 7702)

Here is an interesting deluxe PONG system: Wonder Wizard model 7702. It was sold by General Home Products (GHP) in 1976, and is basically a Magnavox Odyssey 300. As a matter of fact, Wonder Wizard systems were manufactued by Magnavox. Model 7702 contains the same circuit board than Odyssey 300, and the bottom part of its plastic case is identical to the one used for the first Odyssey system.

As this system is same as Magnavox Odyssey 300 (except for the case), the game difficulty levels are set the same way using a 3-position switch to choose one of three combinations of difficulties (ball speed, ball angle and bat size). Thus, all difficulty levels cannot be used. The switch allows using three predefined difficulty levels, whereas most other PONG games had separate switches to change the speed, ball and paddle size and rebound angles.

Finally, this system exist in several forms. One has black knobs and woodgrain all over the top side of the case (as pictured), another has silver discs on both knobs, and woodgrain only on the title area (rectangle over switches), and a different version is a mix with silver discs and all woodgrain case...
