MAGNAVOX
Odyssey

Handball  

Another "Tennis" variation, but this time against a wall. To display a wall on the left hand side of the screen instead of the middle (like for Tennis and Table Tennis games), a new cartridge (#8) is delivered with the game.

This is the first implementation of what will be one of the most popular pong variation in the following years. Depite its name, it's not reall a "Handball" simulation, but rather a Squash or Pelota inspired game.
