Little is known about this small pong system made in Hong Kong.

It seems to be a classic pong system with 4 pong games. Games selection is made through a small dial in the middle of the case. Switches are used to choose different functions.

The two controllers (sliders) are detachable.

I still have one, unused but still in one piece, and yes it was powered by C batteries.

We had this in the early 80's. I think we purchased it at radio shack. Yes all it was, was a glorified pong game, but the family spent hours playing it.I don't believe that it took batteries.
