Ultra Pong Doubles (Model C-402)

Ultra Pong Doubles was the ultimate pong console released by Atari (in 1977). It offers 16 pong games (32 variations) mainly based on original pong and hockey games, for 2 to 4 players!

DESCRIPTION

The plastic case show only one button which acts a Game Select and Reset. There is also a power on/off switch, but that's all for the interaction.

The list of the 16 games along with their screenshots are printed on the case front.

On the rear side, one can spot an external power supply connector (called battery eliminator by Atari), a RF TV cord to connect to the television and 4 controller (paddles) connectors label LEFT A & B, and RIGHT A & B.

The Ultra Pong Double can also be powered by 4 C battery cells.

THE GAMES

The 16 games are:
1 - pong
2 - super pong
3 - hyper pong
4 - ultra pong
5 - hockey
6 - super hockey
7 - hyper hockey
8 - ultra hockey
9 - barrier pong
10 - super barrier pong
11 - hyper barrier pong
12 - ultra barrier pong
13 - barrier hockey
14 - super barrier hockey
15 - hyper barrier hockey
16 - ultra barrier hockey

An impressive color gradient is constantly displayed as playing background. It's darker in pong games, where ball and paddles are displayed white, and it's cleared in hickey games as ball and paddles are displayed in black.

When a game is over, the system overlays a checkerboard pattern that scrolls one direction and bounces off the top and bottom every once in a while. Definitely a screen saver, but of a different kind!

PROMOTIONAL TEXT (Ultra Pong model)

Convert your TV screen into an ice blue hockey rink. Fire a slap shot into the unique barrier field and dazzle your opponent with terrific speed-up and ricochet action of the puck. Centered, on-ice hockey goals with exciting, behind the net action.

Master one... choose among the variety of PONG or BARRIER PONG selections. Smash a volley into the barriers, or across the net. Change ball direction with the forward player paddle.

More... It's your choice! Be a champ, play them all!

All this fun and it connects to any home TV set in only seconds. A flip of a switch and resume normal TV viewing.

OTHER SYSTEMS

ears Pong Sports IV was the exact same system, but marketed by... Sears.
