Tic-Tac-Toe / Shooting Gallery / Doodle / Quadra-Doodle  

This cartridge, the first of the serie, offers 4 solo games: Tic-Tac-Toe, Shooting Gallery, Doodle and Quadra-Doodle.


"You play a game of Tic-Tac-Toe against the machine. You have the X's, the machine has the O's. The object is to get your three X's in a line before the machine gets its O's in a line. You always get to start first."

Simple nought and crosses game. The only reference to a previous tic-tac-toe game is the first videogame ever: OXO, programmed by A.S. Douglas in 1952 on an EDSAC computer.

Shooting Gallery

"The object of Shooting Gallery is to shoot a "ball" from a "rifle" on the right side of the screen. The "rifle" is pre-positioned and will only change position when the target is hit. Each hit produces a new "rifle" position."

Shooting Gallery is an original game and surely the most interesting one on this cartridge.


Doodle is very simple program. You can move a dot around the screen to draw patterns. You can change the color of the dot (blue, green or red) and its size. You also have an erase mode.


Watch the system draw random patterns on screen! You can switch between Doodle and Quadra-Doodle to control some parameters like the size of the pen or the erase mode.
