DescriptionOdyssey's game card #3 is used to play four different games: Tennis, Analogic, Hockey and Football.
Tennis is basically the same game as Table Tennis (game card #1), only now you use a screen overlay to simulate a tennis field and traditional tennis rules apply.
Analogic is a brain teaser played on a galactic map made of numbered squares. One player starts in planet ODD while the other starts in planet EVEN and the objective is to be the first to reach the opponent's planet. The ODD player is only allowed to move to a square if it's number summed with EVEN's current square totals an ODD number, and vice-versa.
Hockey is another evolution of Table Tennis, but this time around your objective is to hit the ball into the net of the opposing player's side.
Football is probably the first rendition of American Football on videogame form. With the assistance of deck cards (provided with the game) you choose the moves (Pass, Kick or Run) and play them out on screen. Running requires game card #4 to be inserted.
