A pong console from Videomaster.

Built-in games: Football, Tennis, Squash, Solo.


CPU: AY-3-8500 from General Instruments


The Strika 2 (model VMV8) was released in 1977. Like the ColourScore 2 and the SuperScore, it uses the General Instruments AY-3-8500 chip. It plays the four basic games, produces a black and white picture, and has the same case as the ColourShot. However, it has a strange feature: it is not possible to set the size of the paddles, nor it is possible to change the type of the ball rebounds. The system allows playing in two modes: PRO and AMATEUR, which only differ by the speed of the ball.
