Intellivision Games using Three Side Buttons

Recommended Posts

I just learned that there are three side action button mappings on the Inty controller (for four physical buttons). The top left and top right are the same button, while bottom left and bottom right are actually mapped separately.

 

My question is, are there any games that use three discrete functions for the side action buttons (not the keypad)?

Yes. I don't recall right now which, but I know there are some. I think Dracula is one: Top buttons turn into a bat, lower-left is bite, lower-right is bite-to-turn-zombie.

You bite a man and turn him into a zombie temporarily, then you can use the zombie to bite and kill a policeman and get extra points. The zombie is moved with the second controller, so it's sort of hard unless you have a friend, or very good coordination.

 

The zombie lasts for about 10 seconds only.

Actually, you don't have to bite the policeman with the zombie, just collide with him.

Is there a complete list. I want to test a controller customization and I don't think that I have any mentioned in this thread

Good question. Don't know of a complete list, but it turns out there are quite a few, based only on overlays...

  • Bomb Squad
  • B-17 Bomber
  • World Series MLB
  • Championship Tennis
  • Las Vegas Roulette (maybe),
  • Melody Blaster (left, maybe)
  • Mr. Basic (Mr. Basic game)
  • Bowling
  • Golf
  • Royal Dealer
  • Safecracker
  • Truckin'
  • Chess
  • White Water!
  • World Championship Baseball

These all in addition to the ones DZ and boxrunner mentioned.
