ColecoVision Prototype Consoles

Recommended Posts

Yeah...so I just checked out Bump 'N Jump with the Expansion Module #2 on the ColecoVision...and the steering insensitivity is almost unplayable...in my opinion.  Definitely not the same as Turbo...which plays just like its arcade counter-part.

Well obviously videogamecritic is a sociopath!  😁  Just kidding.  It is obviously "playable" with the Expansion Module #2, but as an example...when the road is at it's widest...it takes more than 2 full revolutions of the wheel to get from one side of the road to the other.  And as it's basically acting like a Roller Controller in joystick mode (pulsing left or right directions), spinning the wheel faster or slower doesn't make your car move sideways faster or slower, only at a single speed like when manipulating the joystick.  As Data East, who developed the game, decided that it should be played with an 8-way joystick...that's the way I'll continue to play it.  By the way...it does play great with my Spy Hunter Experience Controller.

Here's part of my Coleco catalogs collection 
There's about 60 different ones in this photo 

I need to scans all of them and upload them to colecoindustries.com (wich I also need to update!)

I think I saw Ms.Pac-Man in one of the catalogs but I'm not sure.

Is anyone doing console boxes repro for Colecovision ?

 

my box has had it ...

 

thanks judge 

Here you go https://www.ebay.de/itm/Amazing-Coleco-Box-Set-Adam-COLECOVISION-EXPANSION-SET-1-2-AND-3-etc/153977691823?hash=item23d9c91eaf:g:ZMwAAOSwcpJe7dkG

 

Well, you didn't specify the size you needed 😁

 

All kidding aside, and in answer to your question, no there is no-one I'm aware of who is currently making repro console boxes for the CV.
