Finally bought a Odyssey 2 :)

Recommended Posts

Been wanting one for awhile now and finally took the plunge. Didn't really know much about how much to spend, but for $100 this seems like a decent lot. Anyways I'm excited to finally be getting this system :)

Welcome to the wonderful habit of Magnavox

That's a nice haul: lots of boxes, Quest for the Rings, the Voice, both KC games, Pick Axe Pete, UFO. Well done, and enjoy!

 

If you get a chance, I'd look for these games sometime too.

Freedom Fighters

PT Barnum'a Acrobats

Attack of the Timelord

Killer Bees

Turtles

Ah, so it is ... I was looking from my phone and couldn't remember them all when replying. It's a fun, fast Centipede type game, one of my favorites on the system.

 

Replace that recommendation with Monkeyshines or another Challenger Series game!

 

What is the Challenger Series?

In 1981, Philips began to release a series of cartridges that had twice the ROM as previous Odyssey² games – 4K instead of 2K. These games featured faster action, deeper gameplay, better-looking graphics, and more challenge than earlier Odyssey² games. Philips called these games the "Challenger Series" and hyped their "Expanded Memory" in Odyssey² advertising.

The first Challenger Series game was UFO, and it was followed by Monkeyshines, Freedom Fighters, and Pick Axe Pete. "Challenger Series with Voice" games include Smithereens, K.C.'s Krazy Chase, P.T. Barnum's Acrobats, Attack of the Timelord, Turtles, and Killer Bees. The final Odyssey² game to be released was the Challenger Series title Power Lords. Most Odyssey² fans consider the Challenger Series to be the best original games the console has to offer – proving that sometimes, marketing copy actually can be trusted!

Interesting History of KC Munchkin:

 

http://www.mathpirate.net/log/2009/10/18/electronic-curiosities-pac-man-vs-k-c-munchkin/

 

 

"So to have K.C. Munchkin laughing from the sidelines, where a third-rate competitor one upped the official licensee, with its multi-colored non-flickering enemies, its decent sound and its sharper graphics, that was intolerable. If the Atari 2600 of Pac-Man version had been a closer replica of the arcade game and had it come out first, Atari probably would have left K.C. alone and that game wouldn’t be remembered for anything today."

$100? You did good. :thumbsup: Some sellers try to get that for The Voice alone now.

I love the Odyssey 2. Very underappreciated console IMO. It doesn't have a ton of great games, but they make the system worth owning.

(BassGuitari Trivia: the Odyssey 2 was my first retro system. :) )

I'm closing in on the complete NTSC collection already :P not a overly large library :) is there any must haves that make getting a European console worth it?

The Voice alone commands $100+. Some of the games you have are a bit uncommon. Good deal!

Nightmare is a good one that was Europe only; you can play it and most foreign release games on your NTSC system as they are region free. Probably be a bit pricey though but worth it IMO!
