P > PHILIPS  > Odyssey 2100   


Philips
Odyssey 2100

This one was available shortly after the Odyssey 2001 pong system. Based upon the same principles it offers more game thanks to a new chipset. As its little brother, the Odyssey 2100 had no equivalent system in the USA under the Magnavox brand. The most related system was the Odyssey 4000...

The National Semiconductor MM-57186-N chipset can play 6 different colour games with variations, resulting in a total of 23 available games. The six games are Football (soccer), Ice Hockey, Tennis, Handball, Wipe-Out and Pinball. Wipe-out (7 variations) is a breakout game where you have to destroy all the squares on the screen. Flipper (7 variations) is a kind of pinball game where the ball bumps onto little squares spread on the screen. It looks more like a typical pong game than a real pinball game. The other games (Tennis, Handball, Hockey, Football) have 2 variations each. Most games are for two players.

There are absolutely no button or switch on this system, all settings are made with the two buttons on the controllers. One button is used to cycle through games while the other one resets the game. These paddles are very similar to those of the later Odyssey²/Videopac systems, except that they have knobs instead of sticks.

Once opened, there is nearly nothing inside! The tiny mother board leaves the case almost empty.
