In an Intellivisionairies interview Russ Haft mentions Atari completed or were close to completing Intellivision versions of Joust, Jungle Hunt, and Pole Position. They'll probably stay undiscovered.

In this CBS Electronics press release dated June 1983 they announce that Wizard of War and Gorf would be released in July. The games would have to be ready for manufacturing in order to do that (or just vapourware).

I remember reading about this and talking about it in school. A few of us that had Intv's were very excited about the prospect of actually getting arcade games (that were hopefully better than Donkey Kong) and titles that people actually knew. But.. the bottom dropped out and with it went all the games.

So...maybe a revival is in order? Maybe someone could create these titles in likeness to avoid the licensing issues?

The "likeness" is one of the things that creates the licensing issue.

 

It's true where I was, I didn't even know that Atari and Parker Brothers actually released any Intellivision cartridges like Defender and Q-bert.  To be honest after what Coleco did, I would have been suspicious.  But they are actually quality games.

And yet again...a funny comment by Rev develops it's own life.

 

Btw. I waited back then for Wizard Of Wor which was announced back than by CBS/Coleco.

yard work simulator, a must have.

especially for those who never liked yardwork.

 

press disk to start:

 

"shut off your intellevision console and do some yardwork".

"grab your spade (or spatula) and start diggin'".

 

end of transmission.
