COLLECTING INFO
COLLECTING
Its quite hard to find one of these even though they are often available, they are rarely found
with instructions as the instruction manual is 84 pages and covers the basics of machine cod
programming, it makes an excellent starting tool to make you think correctly. because the
manual is so big it was either to fat to fit inside the standard plastic flip cases and was either left
outside of the case or supplied A4 size in an envelope. what makes them even more hard to
get, is that the manual is written in a single language because of its size, and so even if you do
find computer programmer in one of the more Videopac proliferate countries, odds are its
manual is not in your language.

Its hard to suggest a general rarity level on this as each manual version for language has
varying levels of rarity.

English, French, German, Dutch & Danish, there seems to be more German ones floating
around than others, and there is no confirmation as yet on the existence of Italian, Swedish,
Spanish & Finnish. so if you have one of those let me know ta!

PLAYING INFO
Not that it can be played really...I actually owned one of these in 1984, it cost my parents 12.99
and the shop had to order it in, I remember it came in a brown shipping box that perfectly fit the
cart, and the manual was Videopac manual size but fat. anyway it soon got shelved as you spent
hours typing in the most rudimentary of operations. and then you ran it, and then you switched off
as you couldnt save your work in any way as the cart had no battery storage and it wasnt until the
BASIC module arrived that programmers could save their work.
