SID the Spellbinder

Unleash Your Vocabulary in SID the Spellbinder!

Enter the Spellbinding Arena:

Step back in time with SID the Spellbinder, a captivating game for the Magnavox Odyssey 2 brought to you by Philips. To begin your spellbinding journey, press 0 on the numeric section of the keyboard. The Voice will prompt you to "SELECT SKILL," offering options 1 and 2. Choose your skill level, and the game will commence.

Monster Attack:

Prepare for a showdown as the monstrous Sid the Spellbinder slithers onto the screen. Armed with only a missile launcher at the screen's bottom, you must defend against this formidable foe. Use the joystick on either hand control to navigate your missile launcher left or right, and press the action button to unleash a missile. Keep an eye on your ammunition supply, indicated in the lower right-hand corner of the screen. Skill level 1 grants you thirty missiles, while skill level 2 provides twenty.

A Battle of Points:

Every hit counts in this spellbinding duel. Score progressively more points for each segment of Sid the Spellbinder you successfully strike. The challenge intensifies as you aim for higher points. Can you keep up as the gaps remain open, and Sid accelerates when your score surpasses 200?

Spelling Challenge:

The game takes an exciting twist when you hit all ten segments of Sid or when it reaches the screen's bottom. Get ready to spell! The Voice will instruct you to type in a word using the alphabet section of the keyboard. Spell it correctly, and you'll earn missiles. Skill level 1 rewards you with 10 missiles per correctly spelled word, while skill level 2 grants 5.

Triple Word Fun:

Each round offers you the chance to spell three words. Don't worry if you make a mistake; the computer will give you a second chance or even spell the word for you. After each word-spelling round, Sid the Spellbinder strikes back, attempting to consume your missiles.

Game Over or Restart:

The game continues until you run out of missiles. To begin anew, press RESET and select your desired skill level (1 for beginner or 2 for a greater challenge).

Rediscover the retro charm and excitement of SID the Spellbinder as you battle the monstrous serpent, defend your ammunition, and put your spelling skills to the test. Can you conquer Sid and emerge victorious in this classic Odyssey 2 game by Philips?
