Hardware Description

The Wonder Wizard (model number: 7702) is a dedicated first-generation home video game console which was manufactured by Magnavox and released by General Home Products (GHP for short) in June 1976 only in the United States. The console features two paddle-based game controllers attached to the system and contains the same circuit board as the Magnavox Odyssey 300 and the same bottom part housing as the Magnavox Odyssey. The paddles are larger than those of the Odyssey 300. The system contains three built-in Pong-based games: Handball, Tennis, Hockey. Just like the Odyssey 300, the Wonder Wizard uses a switch so that the players can choose between the three preset difficulty levels.
