History[edit]

Released by Bit Corp in 1990, Bit Corp folded in 1992 but UMC would continue production until around 1993, with the Gamate's biggest market only being a modest presence in Italy.[1][2]

The Gamate was a failure in the market and it is speculated that the Gamate sold worse then the Watara Supervision.[3]

Technology[edit]

The Gamate uses a clone of the 8-bit MOS 6502 processor, either a UMC UA6588F or an NCR 81489.[4][5]

The Gamate probably has 16 kilobytes of RAM.[4]

The monochrome Gamate screen tends to ghost badly.[6]

Notable games[edit]

About 70 games were released for the system.[6]
