It's on Taito Legends for PS2 and Original Xbox

 

Thanks for the reminder. I actually have Taito Legends, but forgot about that being on there.

crossbow - I think coleco would do a great version of crossbow too if we had a light gun. I know someone was experimenting with one but so few people have crt televisions anymore. Could be done with roller controller but sounds too frustrating.

 

I have Crossbow on my MAME arcade machine and it plays AWESOME with the Trakball. I would love to see more games be made that can use the Roller Controller.  Kickman or Crystal Castles comes to mind...

Gradius 2 is on my wishlist together with also simple game like:

 

Boot Hill and Space Chaser.

 

Would also like to see: Pachinko II and Sega Flipper.

What we need for ColecoVision is also a one armed bandit/slot machine.

Gradius 2 MSX isn't the same as "Gradius II: Gofer no Yabou" arcade. Totally different games. But yes, Gradius 2 can be done on the CV... ;)

Hi,

If I could pick one game to "port" over to the Colecovision, it would be Intellivision's "Night Stalker" - one of the best video games ever made - period!
O.k. I lied; here's two Atari entries: "Missile Command" and "Qix".
One more for the road: "Satan of Saturn". Yes, I figure most of you think I am off my rocker for this choice!

I agree! Kickman would be awesome. I pumped many quarters into that machine back in the day.

 I third Kickman! There's a TON of cool and obscure arcade games on the TI-99 just ripe for porting to CV. Check out this killer port of Scramble on the TI-99. I would've killed for this game back in the day!

We are playing a game now in the Atari 8-bit HSC that would be a lot of fun on the ColecoVision.

 

It's called The Great Return of the Penguins.

 

Very addictive and fun!!!

The TI-99/4A is not a Z80 machine, so any game you pick on the TI would have to be recoded from scratch for the ColecoVision. The term "port" is therefore not so appropriate here.

 I know. I was just showing it as more of a 'proof of concept' example of what a CV version could look & sound like since they both use the same graphics/sound chips. Also, I would think if you had the TI-99 source code, the fact the graphics/sound chips are the same would as least make a CV version somewhat easier to do instead of doing it all from scratch.

The original code is open source GPL3, except for the name (belongs to EA), you can call it as Micropolis (the open source version). :)

Space Firebird is a nice Nintendo shooter that to my knowledge has never been ported to any system.

ColecoVision was supposed to have a LaserDisc player, right? I think it would be neat to see a game with a simple interface but a big back end that wouldn't seem possible on the Coleco. Something other than Dragon's Lair, of course. :-)  

 

DISCLAIMER: this is just an idle fantasy, and I would hate for anyone to spend time on anything so foolish as this idea

Interestingly, a drop-in SD card replacement for the laser disc players in Dragon's Lair and similar arcade machines has recently been released. From what I vaguely remember, the ColecoVision should have the in-built capability to overlay its graphics over video, so some type of Palcom MSX-esque laserdisc style experience might be possible. I agree, though, that it's extraordinarily unlikely that someone with the skill to make this happen would make this happen.

My wish list tends to change from one season to the next, but right now, the title I'd most like to see done on the ColecoVision is Dracula (the Coleco vaporware title) just because it just needs to be done. :)

 

I always wanted that game as a kid. It never came to be. :(

Would be cool to see some more 80's computer games on the CV like those Epyx games. Some of these would be impossible to port though.

 

- Aliens

- Castle Wolfenstein

- Karateka

- Space Taxi

- Temple of Apshai

- Conan

- Bruce Lee

- Dino Eggs
- Ghostbusters
- GI Joe
- Beach Head

- Raid Over Moscow

- Realm of Impossibility

- Skate or Die

- Sword of Fargoal

- Super Zaxxon

 

Some more obscure games like Pogo Joe and Forbidden Forest would be cool too.

 

I wonder if Ultima I or II can be done on a CV? :P
