While the Odyssey² and Videopac consoles were on the market, a number of documents were written about them – game manuals, magazine reviews, advertising pamphlets and so on. This Library is an archive of those documents. Each page has been scanned – and in some cases, digitally cleaned up and translated into English – and is presented similarly to its original format. Some documents are also available as PDF files, or in text-only format.
A note on translations: some documents in the Library were not originally published in English. Some of them have been translated (preserving as much of the original format as possible) with the help of online translation tools. The translations may not be exact, but should be close to the original meaning. Scans of the original document will be available as well.
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.
