Help Identify a Vintage Console I Found

Recommended Posts

Hey guys,

 

About 4 years ago I went to a market looking for vintage games and to my surprise found a vintage console that I thought was a Colecovision but this was much different. When I took it out of the box it turned out to be a weird off spring of the INTV and the Colecovision, the main thing I remember about it was the keypad. You know how there is normally 1 to 9 then clear and enter on the keypad, well this one had a dog. Thats right, where the clear button should be on the INTV there was a picture of a dog's head done all cartoon like, it was definitely not customized or any thing it was factory made like that.

 

That's all I really remember, had I of been into vintage gaming more back then I might have been able to get more details on it. Does any one know what I am talking about? I really would like to see this console again and find out what the hell the Dog button does!.

any help would be appreciated.

Chance were it was probably an INTV. What may have thrown you off was an Overlay on the controller from the game MouseTrap which infact has a cartoonish dog on it. Go ahead and google coleco mousetrap overlay and you might find that this what you had seen.

yes,

 

lol, that is it, seeing as it was 4 years ago and back then I had almost no knowledge of the INTV I must have gotten really confused.

thanks for clearing that up guys, I now know the dog button is to turn into an actual dog and eat cats!

Long enough to go back in time 4 years? Because that's when the OP said he saw it!
