H.E.R.O. for Intellivision

Recommended Posts

I DO love this game.

 

Do you think it's possible to create H.E.R.O. for Intellivision ?

 

Who could do it ?

Wasn't Groovy Bee's Rescue on Terra 5 game a H.E.R.O. clone?

Yes Jason, you're right.

 

But I would like to play the original game with our console. May be Groovy could do it ?? :)

No! Terra 5 does not play anything like HERO :P.

In my defense, I've never actually played H.E.R.O. :)

Lol! I guess it's also a safe bet to assume that even if you had played it, there was very little chance you'd read the instruction manual? :)

...but I'd be all over overlays :)

I do agree, I think it could be easy to do it.

 

Could be fun to create different maps for a H.E.R.O. II

 

For sure David Harley and Arnauld Chevallier could create a lot of levels and maps (reference with Super BT and Stonix !). May be, they could work again in this project ? Or someone else ??

A H.E.R.O. II would be cool - but another port of a game that can be played already across other systems? :yawn:

 

 

I agree. That's why it could be absolutely AMAZING to create H.E.R.O. II for Mattel Intellivision !

H.E.R.O. was my favorite game for the 2600!

 

I played over and over and I still would love to play again in an Intellivision! :thumbsup:

 

Different levels would be cool too.

 

Even in an original H.E.R.O., maybe it's possible to make a game variation #2 and then you have to go all the way up (holding the miner?) without time or with a new full time bar...

Back in the 90s my dad and I almost purchased this game under the assumption that it was an Intellivision title, fortunately I examined the cart before leaving the store and realized the size was wrong... did the box even specify on which console the game was intended to be played?

I have the Atari 2600 and Colecovision versions. I prefer the Atari 2600 version. The Colecovision graphics are not great for this version.

A very rough mock-up of what the Inty version could look like :-

My craptastic programmer art :lol: could be much improved by a good pixel artist. The mock isn't using very many GRAM cards so there is plenty of scope for interesting backgrounds. I've allocated 3 MOBs for the player's avatar, which leaves 5 free for moving enemies, shots etc.

You're kidding me ! :-o Well done GroovyBee !

 

It could be really great to do the Number II but, you can't do it.... you have to finish all the other games before :grin:

No, no. H.E.R.O. must be priority #1, ALWAYS. ;)

 

I was born and live in a Brazilian state of "Minas Gerais". We are called "mineiros". What does "mineiro" mean?

Miner!

I am a miner and need the Intellivision H.E.R.O. desperately! :grin:

My oxygen is dropping to critical levels.

Awesome… It is nice to dream about this amazing game ported to the INTV...

 

And after HERO, what about Frostbite? (another Activision classic) ;)

Yes, I am waiting for Frostbite too.

A Thin Ice 2 actually. The Duncan Penguin jumping as in Frostbite.

A Frostbite with the thin ice theme would be excellent. Or is just me and I'm alone with this dream?
