^^ This! I totally agree that this would be an awesome feature to be able to choose from playing the "classic" version or the "new" version at a whim. Great thought here and I hope this can be implemented in some fashion.

 

I just hope Data East gets their head out of their arses and lets Lock N Chase to be added.

 

Me and my dear old mom (RIP) played a TON of it back in the day. When i play it today i can hear her cackling laugh in my head..............

Borrowing from the Intellivision library looks like it fits the bill for modern games. A fully updated Utopia with 21st Century graphics and sound and internet play and algorithms/heuristics that don't have to fit into 4k is a great idea. A 21st Century version of Tron Maze-a-Tron (with none of the quirks and tons of space for programming logic, hey make it where people can learn inadvertently) would be good. 21st Century versions of Sea Battle, Shark Shark, Microsurgeon, Burgertime, Dracula, all awesome. So a company that wants to do that basically has to buy/license the whole Intellivision catalog, there's no reason to license and not take the Intellivision name as well...

 

 

 

 

 

 

My mind explodes at the thought of a modern version of Advanced D&D Cloudy Mountain (probably my favorite game to play of all time) and just think how bad arse The Dreadnaught Factor would look with modern graphics but similar game play....ERMAGERD!

Tackling classics like Astrosmash would be welcome in my world and possibly tweaking B17 so it makes better sense and has better overall gameplay.

 

As you said, the Tron's could all use a modern twist too.

 

Space Battle and Space Spartans with better graphics (better looking enemy ships) would be nice. And this may ruffle some feathers...but take Space Hawk and give it better/clearer purpose and gameplay.

 

My mind spins at the possibilities of taking what we have and improving it. The ONLY request i would have of the Intelly Gods is that we have an option for each game to play the Classic Version or the NEW version. To me, that seems like must have.

Remaking the old games and re-releasing the old games are possible for games they have rights to. They own the rights to all the Mattel and INTV games, although some of these have additional properties belonging to others e.g. Disney's Tron. They would have to secure rights to the games from Imagic, Activision, etc. Although making modern versions of Imagic titles might not need any.

It's already been said the controller will have a touchscreen. I wouldn't want to pay Intellivision Baseball with it if it didn't have some sort of tactile button layer.

 

Good to hear about touch screen. Does that mean it WILL have a digital way to display the overlays?

Also....and my mind is dreaming of the possibilities...but a Bluetooth controller (as planned) but maybe something like an Iphone glass screen. That way when you pull up the game, the overlay for that game appears on the glass screen. Sure you'd sacrifice the bubble buttons but i'd sacrifice the bubble if i never had to hunt down and cram an overlay in the controller again.

 

Just dreaming.....

Not sure if this has been discussed yet. But in the Podcast about this new console there was some hints about Baseball being reworked to play the same but look more modern. Thats the impression i got. 

THIS got my mind to reeling.

 

IS this a possibility of all the games? Imagine Demon Attack with original play but better graphics (more than they already are).

 

But the ONE thing that really jumped out at me was all these games that were 'slighted' due to limited memory on the cartridges. For instance, imagine a REAL ending to the game of Swords and Serpents! A REAL pay off when beating the dragon!!

 

I know there are few real facts and a ton of speculation...but this is where my mind went.

 

A boy can dream, right?
