I know this font as Los Angeles 24pt designed by Susan Kare. I think it`s need more spacing.

You're right.  I forgot totally about that when I was drawing this yesterday.  GEOS was a C64 operating system designed in 1985, with a LOT of Macintosh influences... looks like it went to the fonts too!

Several other GEOS fonts map directly to Kare's Mac fonts.  Most GEOS fonts are named after locations in and around University of California, Berkeley - in this case, Tolman Hall.  (I grew up using a Commodore so I'm more familiar with the GEOS names.)

I've attached the sample I used as reference (screen shot from emulator) and re-drew pixel by pixel (with one minor correction to the f, which looked like the t).
