CV games that used overlays

Recommended Posts

How many, and can someone provide titles?I am asking because I bought a CV lot off Craigslist and there are no overlays, yet all the cart shells have a recessed area in the back to hold overlays.

 

I have looked in Google and Yahoo searches for CV overlay scans and can only find a few like War Room, Mousetrap, Spy Hunter, Star Trek and some homebrews.

I think only a few games came with overlays. I don't care about them, so I don't have many. I think there may have been another thread about this a while back also (try a search).

Pretty well all games that came on the Colecovision type carts had those slots on the back to hold overlays whether or not overlays were produced for that game, i.e. there were not 2 different types of carts depending on whether overlays existed or not, they used the same carts regardless.

Does any one know how many overlays came with Dr. Seuss and Cabbage Patch Kids Picture Show? I recently got a Dr Seuss and CPKPS that seemed new in box, but they only got 1 overlay. Was wondering if that's normal?

 

Thanks.
