    In particular, Intellivision, Commodore 64, and Sega Saturn. Great consoles that never fully got their due, until now...!!!
  • Currently Playing
    Whatever I can get my hands on that is retro, especially for systems such as Mattel Electronics Intellivision and Sega Saturn!

    I got my modded Xbox. Now if I could only somehow burn a homebrew Dreamcast game successfully...

    So many games, so little time. But the classics will never go out of style !!!
  1. I once won a childhood bet with my Mom, and because I won, she bought me "Boxing" for Intellivision. Looking back, the choice of game was not the best decision...
  2. I want one! How do I get a copy of Pumpkin Master ???
  3. I just sent my $45 for both Upmonsters and Pumpkin Master box/overlays sets for Intellivision.
  4. Ashley Bottoms here. My reserved copy is #111. How do I go about purchasing it? I clicked on the link, but it does not seem to work... ~ Ash
  5. "Alternate Reality" for Commodore 64. Only the first two games of the series [The City and The Dungeon] were released, and then Datasoft decided to end the series all together. There were six games planned in the beginning: The City [which became split in to 2 chapters: The City and The Dungeon] The Arena The Palace The Wilderness Revelations Destiny https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alternate_Reality_(series)
  6. The sound effects are definitely taken from Intellivision games. I somehow believe that the game in this video was simply created just for the "National Lampoon's Vacation" film.
  7. It's a long way to the top if you want to rock & roll...

      Damn skippy!

  8. It sounds a lot like "TRIPLE ACTION" for the Intellivision. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q2yC9EJMwV4
  9. Great interview! As a fellow reporter, may I suggest not using the sound effects of the game during the interview, as it drowns out the interview. I had the pleasure of interviewing HSW myself back in December of 2015. He is a great guy and IMHO a pioneer in the infancy of video games... www.hulkshare.com/appetitefordiscussion/bottoms-up-afd-12-28-2015
  10. Back in the day, Activision made a Frogger-type game called "FREEWAY" for the Atari 2600. It's based on the old saying "Why did the chicken cross the road?" You may want to check that one out. ~ Ash Here is the commercial... https://youtu.be/hsnNxnGowcg
