Odyssey – Baseball

Baseball is a sport game developed and published by Magnavox in 1978 for Odyssey².

This game respects quite faithfully the real rules of the game. The three numbers displayed in the lower left corner indicate respectively the balls, the strikes and the withdrawals. The defending player controls the catchers with the joystick and the batting controls the ball’s curve with the joystick. A ball caught in flight automatically equates to a withdrawal and if it is not caught, the defence must pick it up and throw it with the joystick and the action button. The teams exchange position when there is three outs. The game lasts nine innings or ten if the score is even in the ninth inning.
