You're thinking of Pang! and Super Pang! Originally arcade games and then ported to home computers in the 80's.

You'll easily find the MAME arcade version. More fun too.

Very tricky!

2:31 is "Elevator Action Returns".

2:18 I swear I know, but the name escapes me.

2:45 looks like Ikari Warriors, but the uniform he's wearing is wrong.

1:18: NFI, hahaha!

You could use Creativision cartridges on it but you had to take the side panel off to fit them is as they were slightly different in size.

The cartridges above were real Dick Smith Wizzard variant.
(as you can see from the labels on the cartridge).

I got one of these consoles for Christmas in 1981.
Wow did I spent some time on it. It came with a BASIC cartridge which I spent many hours on (as well as the games!).

Seeing these cartridges brought back so many memories!!

did a search on Ikari Warriors and found a clip for SNK - Gurellia war which is what is shown in the original clip. I prefered Ikari Warriors.

now all I need is the on at 1:18, I wonder if it's a Load Runner variant.

Im looking for a game that I played a demo of on a pc gamer magazine cd, you were in a gun turret kinda thing and you were being taken on a tour of the europa mining colony... any ideas what its called? think it was mid to late 90s, I either had a 486dx2 80 or cyrix pr166 to help give you a timeframe.

Descent would be my guess, I believe you went to Europa on that.

I was thinking Battlezone, but that might be a bit new-ish

It was definately not Descent, it doesnt look like it was battlezone either but im looking for more videos to confirm that...

Edit: Not Battlezone either, it was before widespread 3d acceleration

I'm trying to remember a game on Game Boy advance which i read a review of but never played. It was a soccer game, but instead of the ball going out of play it would bounce off the wall and play would continue.

I know this reply is not timely, but...

Not soccer, but kind of sounds like Speedball 2.
