You need to go through the interactive questionnaire and describe the appearance of the font.

 

It's a little like Animal, Mineral, Vegetable - answer enough of the questions about the font and you'll identify it.

 

If that doesn't make any sense I'll go through the questionnaire tomorrow and try and identify the font myself.

 

For instance the font is a DISPLAY font, and not a TYPE font. It's made for titles. It is also a SANS SERIF font, meaning it doesn't have serifs.

These are all the kinds of questions the website will ask.

It's close but look at the Y, V, and M....in the commercial they have diagonal lines, whereas Data70's are straight. The C in Computer has an extra thickness on the top hook just like the commercial, and ditto for the S in the bottom.

 

Data70 I think is what you are looking for. Similar to "Computer" but the M is more accurate without the dots below but it seems to be a little "fatter".

Checkbook is the closest I think you are going to get. It still has the dots in the M's, but the rest looks nearly spot on. Since you are using it for a title, can't you just rasterize the font logo after you type it and then manually remove the dots? That is what I would do... that would be much quicker than taking over an hour or even longer looking for something that might not even be available. Atari could have commissioned that graphic as an art piece and not actual font style. Therefore it might not exist in type font form at all or even as a font?

Computer is very close...though it has dots in the Ms that aren't in the commercial's font.

It's almost certainly based on Computer. Companies often slightly modified fonts for their own uses.

Both look similar to commercial but Computer seems like a little bolder compared to Data70

Thank you, @Groundtrooper and @CDS Games

It worked fine for me - I uploaded the Odyssey image from your first post and it immediately came up with Computer as the font.

Well... I was wrong.. i uploaded the Video Computer System image instead Odyssey that's why it doesn't work.

After i tried it with Odyssey it shows me Computer font.
