I got some INTV games yesterday, and this frogger was with them, but it doesn't look like the usual Intv frogger.

Is this not for the intellivision? It has the same amount of pins on the cartridge PCB as the other ones.

Likely its a Commodore 64 cart. Rumor has it you can fry your intellivision by putting a C64 cart in it.

I was just going to say, it does look similar to some C64 games I had as a kid.

Yea, it is the c64 cart. Got them for 1.99 each so i can't complain. It was at a videogame store, you think they could label their carts properly...

Yeah, IIRC the C64 pinout shorts the Intellivision +5 and GND. Too lazy to look right now, though.

I remember when I picked up a Star Wars Arcade with some INTV games and thought for a good 30 seconds I had something rare.
