Coleco Telstar Arcade Game System

(Coleco - 1977)
Coleco Telstar Arcade Game System
The Coleco Telstar Arcade is one of the most unique game consoles with interchangeable cartridges from the 1970's. It has a triangular design to accommodate the typical game types of the era... a Pong style control side, a target shooting light gun control side and a driving game steering wheel side.
Coleco Telstar Arcade Instruction Manual
The game cartridges were also in a triangular shape and included multiple games per cartridge to take advantage of the different controllers available on the Telstar Arcade.
In all, only four cartridges were available for a total of 20 individual games. This set it apart from other consoles of the time that were dedicated game systems that played only one or two built in variations of the same game. This was a significant departure form home video gaming standards of the time.
But what really made this great little home video game system stand out from the pack in 1976, was that the games were in color instead of monochrome like most other Pong style systems!
