<Sigh> ... very, very disappointing. I really like the Blue Sky Rangers, and I want to support their plans for the Intellivision properties, but I can't spend any more money on yet another NOAC that I'm never going to use; I've already got two of their Intellivision 10-in-1 handhelds somewhere around here, gathering dust. Now that the FB2 has permanently raised the bar, these half-baked NOAC systems are only going to get harder and harder to accept. The only exception would be a really good one like the Jakks Atari 13-in-1 Paddle, but I suspect that something of similar quality is probably beyond the means of Techno Source.
Hopefully I'll get a working unit soon but in the meantime, it's plan to see that this collection fails as a retro piece and as a modern amusement. It's not close enough to the real Intellivision to appeal to fans of the old games, and it's not exciting enough on its own terms to make it worthwhile as a modern set of games. It's cheap, and it's better than the first Intellivision collection plug and play devices, but that's really not saying much.

Space Gunner is a Intellivision-esque shooting gallery, kind of like the "TV-Pixx" version of Space Battle, only uglier.
Volleyball looks like Realsports Volleyball from the Jakks Atari sticks. I didn't play the other games on the unit yet.
Larcen -- they did re-release Treasure of Tarmin as "Minotaur" on the "Intellivision Rocks" emulation disc for PC/Mac. This is the "unbranded" version of the game, just like "Deadly Discs" in the new plug and play is good old TRON Deadly Discs without the trademarked characters.
