That's right!!
A great news for the whole ColecoVision community!

CollectorVision found & preserved another unreleased game!
This game has NEVER been dumped before and this is the only cartridge in existence!

The game is not a prototype, it's the full game

 

We're going to post more informations about this awesome find, soon! ;)

Wow - this is just incredible news J-F.  Well done to all involved!!!!!

 

Looking at the date on the cart this isn't even one that was produced near end of the CVs life but somewhere in the middle.  Will be interesting to know why it was never released.

Great news. With a preordered Phoenix, my interest in the Colecovision is higher than its ever been so this is fantastic.

I just want to point this out:

We're certainly not buying those unreleased/prototypes games to keep them off people's eyes 

In fact, it is quite the opposite!

We always make sure to quickly dump them, release a small batch of CIB copies to help us recoup some money (so we can keep buying unreleased/prototype games) 

Once it's all done, we make sure to make the rom file available to the public :)

If it is Pink Panther that would be Purfect I agree :)

We already preserved Pink Panther, it was only a rolling demo of the first stage
Although, we're working on it to make the full fledge game

I know what it is!

 

It's Tunnels And Trolls!

 

Please say it's Tunnels And Trolls!

I already know it's not Tunnels And Trolls.  :sad:

 

A man can dream, no?

It is not Dracula, Skiing or Tunnels & Trolls 
It's way more obscure than that ;)

There's something called "005" on here. That seems pretty obscure.

The game is not in that list

Besides, this list is not 100% accurate and it's missing a few titles in there
