I used to have one of these myself, probably around about Xmas 1981...my first games console.

Remember buying a cartridge for it, some speed bike racer game whereby you had to jump a series of cars, it came with a analog rotary dialled paddle that you moved left or right to set your speed, this plugged directly into the back of the cartridge.

If I remember correctly the screen consisted of three tiers of road with your character horizontally scrolling. Your character would start at the top of the screen and as it reached the right edge of the screen would shift down to the next tier of road, the bottom tier had the ramp. If you set your bike too fast you would crash, if too slow by the time you reached the ramp to jump the cars you would fail your landing.
