Because reading is a serious educational tool!

This Library is an archive of game manuals, magazine reviews, advertising pamphlets and other documents related to the Odyssey² and Videopac consoles. Each document is presented similarly to its original format, and some are also available as PDF files or in text-only format. Some have been translated into English from other languages.

The Library will grow with time, but is small now. If there's a document you can't find here, try Ozyr's Odyssey² Archive.
