This is the thread I'm going to use to release any ColecoVision Unreleased/Prototype/Vaporware games (or rom files, if you will) 

 

The ColecoVision Brotherhood is composed of a few members here who put their money together (sometimes alone) to buy ColecoVision prototypes to release them to the public, so anyone can finally enjoy them!

If you have any unreleased prototypes, please contact me
We're offering very good $$$$ reward for any unreleased games!

 

 

PS: Feel free to contribute to this thread! :)

Pursuit of the Pink Panther 

 

It is just a rolling demo of the first stage 

Although, CollectorVision is currently making the full game!
In fact, it will get released end of 2019 


Enjoy! :cool:

Awesome! Thank you for sharing this (almost) lost game/demo, JF and team! :thumbsup:

Even though it's a demo, this still an important piece of ColecoVision history and I (and many others I'm sure) have been wanting to check it out for a long time now. I'm just glad you were able to acquire and preserve it. Can't wait to see what magic you guys work with the additions! :)

It may just be a short rolling demo with simple and annoying music - but it's awesome to finally see this after all the mystery and smoke and mirrors that went on with this in the past.

Thank you very much! I remember very well the back and forth with the guy(s) that owned the prototype cartridge and after stating to them that it sounds like it was just a self running demo how things went quiet for a long stretch. Glad to hear that things eventually worked out  and awesome that you have decided to share the rom dump with everyone.

I was contacted by RB in 2013 about Pink Panther, SAT Defense and Quest for Volcan.

 

He got those protos directly from HQ Knoxville TN.

 

He shared some pictures and a little story from RG with me, but it was confidential at that time.

 

Nice demo J-F.  :)

i have quickly checked in the ROM code because  i found strange that the rom was 32K  just for that rolling animation.

 

I hope to find some code i could jump and see other screen or something else...

 

And guess what?

...

...

...

 

I found nothing :(

 

It seems there is nothing else... :(

 

Anyway thanks a lot for that ROM , JF!

Yes, we also did checked the rom file, and yeah, nothing more :/

That's why we've decided to start from scratch 
We should post a demo video soon of our works in progress  :)

Will the game be based on the Atari 2600 prototype?

Yes, the Atari2600 and CV version were the same game
Of course the CV version have better graphics and animations
