APF M1000 / MP1000
The APF M1000 was released in 1978. It's a Video game system cart based, comes with 2 non-detachables joysticks with a numeric keypad on each ones (look likes a mini-calculator with a joystick), has "Reset" & "Power" buttons on the unit. Only could be played on a Color TV only. This system seems to have been the pack-in unit with Imagination Machine. The APF MP1000 was released in 1978. This system is basically the same as the M1000 model and both syste...
SOUNDIC SD-290 Programmable Colour Video Game
Though different in shape, the Soundic SD-290 is internaly the same system as the Rollet Video-Color, the Hanimex HMG-7900 and the Soundicvision SD-200. This SD-290 model was sold worldwide through different brands (in France for example by ITMC and JouÚClub)... All these systems were surely produced by Soundic in Hong-Kong as they have code-names like "SD-2xx" (where SD would mea...
ATARI  Stunt Cycle (model SC-450)
The following description comes from www.atariHQ.com website, especially the Stunt Cycle dedicated page : "Considered by many collectors as the coolest of the dedicated (non-cartridge) Atari home consoles, Stunt Cycle allowed aspiring Evel Knievel wannabes the joy of performing knarly stunts -- without the risk of breaking one's neck. Tons of tricks to pull off he...
VICTOR V-Saturn
This version of the Saturn was produced by Victor (better known in the U.S. and Europe as JVC) under licence from Sega. It is functionaly identicle to the Sega version of the console, the only change is a different splash screen when the console is switched on. There are two different versions of the V-Saturn: V-Saturn (RG-JX1): This is the first version, released on November 22nd 1994. The top half is grey and the bottom half is black. It has oval bu...
SAMSUNG Saturn
This version of the Saturn was produced by Samsung under licence from Sega exclusively for the Korean market. Unusually for the Saturn there seems to only one version of this particular console (SPC-ST2). It features a stange mix of components from the different versions of the Saturn available elswhere. The case is of the early oval buttoned type but uses the motherboard from the newer round buttoned type, resulting in some strange characteristics. For ...
HANIMEX  SD 070 Colour (programmable TV-game console)
This is a typical system using catridges based on the different chipsets developped by General Instruments in the late 70s. Each GI chips was able to generate several games, ball games for a start, then later car racing, motorcycle, submarines, tanks and shooting games. The system has two detachable controllers with one analog joystick and one fire button each. The control panel is composed of 10 buttons to select the different games offered by each cartridge (10 being the maximum). Difficult...
SEGA SG-1000 Mark II
Very similar to the SG-1000, the SG-1000 Mark II was just a minor update consisting mainly of cosmetic changes. The case was redesigned and the joysticks of the Mark I were replaced by joypads which could be stored in built-in holders located on either side of the console. There was also built-in port where a keyboard could be attached, effectively turning the console into a computer. However, the Mark II was still outsold by it's computer counterpart, t...
SNK Neo Geo Pocket Color
Following the surprise withdrawal of the Neo Geo Pocket, SNK immediately launched the Neo Geo Pocket Color (NGPC). The NGPC was available in six different colours. Internally the hardware was almost identical to the earlier Neo Geo Pocket, but now featured a colour display. Again SNK released ports of their arcade games, but the most notable game must surely be Sonic The Hedgehog - Pocket Adventure, which was the first ever Sonic game to be released...
SNK Neo Geo Pocket
Released towards the end of 1998 in Japan, the Neo Geo Pocket was yet another challenger to Nintendo's Game Boy. The Neo Geo Pocket had great battery life (even the Pocket Color managed around 40 hours from just two batteries!), an area where so many Game Boy competitors had failed, and a number of SNK's popular arcade games appeared on the system. But the sales figures were lower than SNK were expecting and the machine was discontinued after just a few months, only to be immediately rep...
COMMODORE  Amiga CD32
In a last ditch attempt to get a foothold in the lucrative console market Commodore launched the Amiga CD32. After their previous effort with the C64 GS failed and the strange decision to advertise the Amiga 600 as a games machine that could be used as a computer it was vital that the CD32 succeeded. The CD32 is notable for being the first 32 bit CD-ROM based console ever released (the Pla...

CASIO  PV-1000
Nearly nothing is known about this obscure system. Help welcomed. Apparently Casio released the PV-1000 and a PV-2000 computer in 1983. But both systems are not compatible with each others... Though one may think they are based on the same hardware, they have in fact completely different architecture. The PV-1000 is powered by a Z80A micro-processor. There is only 2 KB RAM available, plus 1 KB devoted to the character generator. The resolution if 256 x 192...
NINTENDO Nintendo 64
Originally starting life as "Project Reality" the Nintendo 64 was the follow up to the SNES. The press went wild over the new console, with articles claiming it could generate graphics on a par with high end Silicon Graphics workstations. Two arcade games (Cruis'n USA and Killer Instinct) were made in 1994 to show the public what the Ultra 64, as it was now known, would be capable of. The announcement on the Killer Instinct intro "available for your home...
STELLAR ELECTRONIQUE Combat lunaire
A weird and rare french system, built by Stellar Electronique from Grasse, France. The games are two variation of the classic Tank Battle.Everything on this system have been designed in order to reduce the costs. No joysticks or paddles, just some buttons built-in the console. The case is made of two thermoformed plastic sheets, just stuck with hot glue. The board itself is hot-glued on the lower half of the case ! No screw or bolt were used to built this cheap console, and all the wires and com...
SEGA Mega Drive
The Mega Drive launched in 1988 in Japan. Europe had to wait two whole years before they would get the machine. Designed as the replacement for the 8 bit Master System, it originally competed against other 8 bit systems, namely the Famicom/NES and PC Engine/TurboGrafx. The Mega Drive had mixed fortunes. In Japan the console was out sold...
SEGA Nomad
Released in Japan and the United States towards the end of the Mega Drive's life, the Nomad was basically a handheld version of the popular home console. No games were ever specifically created for the Nomad, limiting it to the back catalogue of the Mega Drive. Not that this was really a problem, as by this time there was already a significant number games available. However, due to the power requirements of the Mega Drive hardware and the backlit 3.25" L...
SEGA Master System
The Sega Master System (SMS) was originally released as the Sega Mark III in Japan. It was released after Nintendo's NES (Nintendo Entertainment System) and was never able to catch up to its level of success. The hardware was superior to that of the NES but the number of quality games on Nintendo's console far out numbered those on the Master System. There were some quality titles on the system and it was also the f...
EPOCH TV Block
This funky pong is the japanese version of the Atari Video Pinball C-380 (and the Sears Pinball Breakaway). It plays seven games: Flipper pinball 1, Flipper pinball 2, Racket pinball 1, Racket pinball 2, Basketball 1, Basketball 2 and Breakout. All these games are in fact improved pong games. All the games are controlled by the big white dial placed on the right part of the system, except the two flipper pinball games which must be played with the two...

CONTINENTAL EDISON / SABA Ordinateur Video Jeu JO 1450 (JOPAC)
Kind of looks like an Odyssey 2 that happened to be ran over by a steamroller. I wonder if it''s also compatible with that console''s games as well.

VOLTMACE Database Games-Computer
Awesome. Had this as a nipper in the 80s. Lived near Baldock so might explain why! I remember going to a local games "shop" / voltmace merchant (swear it was someones garage or house extension) and there was always the one shifty database title amongst the vast array of sexier looking atari 2600 games. I wasn''t interested in hearing any "compatibility" nonsence - i just wanted the spiderman game with green goblin on the box (it was packaging perfection ). Were voltmace and all the other UK cart machines 2600 inspired / direct clones anyway?

SEGA Master System II
Never liked the controller for the Master System. The D-pad felt way too imprecise and mushy for my liking, and the buttons just didn''t feel good when you pressed down on them. Thankfully, you can use a regular Genesis controller instead.

Have you played Atari today??? If not, then you should stop what you''re doing right now and fire one of these bad boys up.
