Little known console that was one of the many victims of the great videogames crash of 1984. The 2001 was distributed by different companies in the various territories, making the naming of the console rather confusing: in Canada it was called the Leisure-Vision, in France it was the Advision Home Arcade and in Italy it was dubbed Leonardo. Just to add to the confusion, there were three different names in (presumably West?) Germany; the Haminex HMG2650, Schmid TVG2000 and the Tele-Fever.

The Games

Thought to be around 35 games. They appear to be the usual mix of simple arcade and sports games and puzzlers.
