Enterprise 128 + EXDOS! The box is a EP64, and the joystick are green! Probably it is a upgraded machine? (After the EP128 released the previous EP64 buyers can upgrade their machines to 128K at discounted price)

I think, that "Pothole Pete" is cassette for Memotex MTX computer (because it not unpacked) or really port of Memotex game, which is clone of Manic Miner:

Computer is similar to the MSX, but not MSX-compatible.

I saw many adverts in old magazines for that  computer.

Interesting historical facts about that computer (and why it is not very famous):
Quote
The Russian schools system was looking to place a contract for systems in some 64,000 schools, to be used to provide education and training for robotics and control applications. In an attempt to secure the contract, Memotech worked with the Norwegian company, Norbit Elektronikk, to develop an add-on electronics unit to be offered alongside the CP/M based FDX disk system and with Oxford University to develop a Russian (Cyrillic) version of the system and BASIC ROMs, along with Russian documentation and keyboard. Memotech invested heavily in the development of this machine, but ultimately, lost out to Yamaha who won the contract with an MSX computer. This order was subsequently radically scaled back, only a few thousand were delivered, and the Russian government's aspiration to expand the use of computers in state schools faltered.

By the time of the Russian bid, the writing was already on the wall, not just for Memotech, but for the majority of UK home computer companies of the time. The Russian deal was the last throw of the dice for Memotech and when it failed, Memotech had nowhere to go and the company was put into administrative receivership.

I am interested on one of these Bus expansions, but this pack is very expensive.

Arabic EP64 from Elcairo...

Only the machine, without the joystick cap, but the cartridge, the power supply and the demonstration tape appear on one of the pictures. The owner admits he has repaired the membrane. Crackled joystick zone. Working.
