Philips Videopac Roms Details

The Philips Videopac G7000 is a video game console, also known as the Magnavox Odyssey 2, launched in 1978. It was a fully programmable home video console that used cassettes. Incidentally, the following devices were also connected via the cassette slot: You can play a game of chess with the voice, the speech output and the chess module. Unlike other consoles of that era, Philips Videopac had a full alphanumeric keyboard that could be used for educational games, selection of game or programming options (yes, users could learn assembler programming through training programs and books). The Philips Videopac G7000 also features natural black joysticks (8-position grip and a single action button), the prototype of future joysticks that appeal to users who play simulators. Over the years, the Philips Videopac joystick is considered the most practical for games.

At first, the developers of Philips Videopac paid no attention to the games, so they were terrible, with poor graphics, bad sound and a boring game. Nobody wanted to play any games again. Potential customers have begun to look for competitors with a larger game library, and the quality of the games was much higher. In 1981, sales of Atari 2600 and Intellivision steadily increased. Philips continued to support the Videopac G7000. Soon, the programmers managed to get the most out of the Philips Videopac, and the games appeared with a much higher quality and interesting gameplay. Some examples of good games released for Magnavox Odyssey 2 include Attack of the Timelord, Turtles, Killer Bees, and Power Lords. These and much more can be found in our Philips Videopac Rome games section and can be downloaded for free.
