Painstakingly redone from movie screenshots.

The ^ caret character is an upward pointing arrow, and is shown in the movie. This is correct based on the old ASCII-1963 standard, where ^ and _ were an upward and leftward pointing arrow, respectively.
I don't believe this font actually matches any specific contemporary terminal from the mid 70s to early 80s, I believe it was done custom for the movie. It is clearly inspired by the character set from several terminals.
One notable feature of the font (shared with several CRT terminals in the 1970s and 1980s) is that no more than 8 adjacent vertical rows within the 7*x10 character cell can be active at any given point. The 'block cursor' violates this, but the circuitry to display that was separate from the circuitry to read the character ROM and shift it vertically.
* Technically the character is 8 pixels wide, but if the 8th/leftmost pixel is set, it will apparently also appear as the rightmost '9th' pixel in the inter-character column, which is undesirable.This can be seen in the custom character set in the movie used for the country outlines during the "UNITED STATES" "SOVIET UNION" "WHICH SIDE DO YOU WANT?" scene. (Either that, or this was an accidental error during creation of those custom characters for the movie.)
The movie also often uses an "overline" character in order to underline the row above, and this occupies an entire row of characters on screen when this happens. Is this the true 'shape' of the underline character?This is a clone of WOPR Terminal
The font can work by itself or curious effects can be achieved. The 3D aspect becomes real by adding one or two gray bands to our text as the samples show. Some alternatives (A, a, E, Y) are at the end of the Basic Latin set.
Hershey Dot Cartographic with the 'dot size' increased to 2x, which is more similar to what the paper expected the dot size to be. (In fact, the paper may expect the dot size even larger, but fontstruct's filters don't let it get any larger than 2!)This is a clone of Hershey Dot Cartographic
8-bit rendition of "Broderbund Software" ripped by http://kofler.at - represents the logo text but not sure what game it's from. Made this proportional and created some punctuation glyphs to fill it out. No descenders in the style of the original.

Two-in-One font again (maybe 3in1?). You can write only with the uppercase, write only with the lowercase or you can mix both alternating them in a single zigzagging word: HELLO, hello, HeLlO, hElLo. Your choice, your fun. Black and more legible version of zapezipi.
