The Videomaster Superscore (model VM-8) was released in 1976 and was available in either kit form (£24.95) or ready-built (over £40). Few commercial systems were proposed in kit form. British advertisements were put in magazines such as Television Magazine. This model was well designed since customers could order different types of RF modules (UHF, VHF) to adapt the system to the existing television formats.

It was sold in several forms: Superscore (the game unit), Superscore Plus (game unit and electronic gun), and Compendium (a nice carton carry case containing the game unit, the electronic gun, the AC adaptor and the additional paddle allowing both players to play without sharing the main unit).

Without the electronic gun, the unit could play four games - Tennis, Football, Squash and Solo. Using the electronic gun, two more games could be played. These extra two games were called AUX1 and AUX2 (as "Auxiliary 1" and "Auxiliary 2"), showing that these two games were only playable with the optional gun.
