The Bally Astrocade (originally known as the Bally Home Library Computer and the Bally Professional Arcade) was a game system released in 1977 by Bally, the original parent company for Midway Games. It was later marketed by an Ohio-based company called Astrovision who changed its name to the Astrocade. The console is particularly notable for its very powerful graphics capabilities, and for the difficulty in accessing those capabilities.
