Intellivision Amico - Tommy Tallarico introduction + Q&A

Intellivision NHL Hockey was lacking; it was one of the weaker cartridges in the sports network.  But it wasn't because of a lack of features.  I had Gamestar/Mindspan Faceoff (msdos/c64).  It had coaching features for defining set plays and lineups that I never used.  I just played the game.


I will respectfully disagree with you on this one.  Hockey, still to this day is played like crazy around the office and my house.  Me & @nurmix have absolutely EPIC battles... mostly with me kicking his ass as I know all the face-off tricks.  :)

For me it's Baseball first, Hockey 2nd.  Football & Basketball don't get much play these days.  Golf, not so much either.  Hockey is so much fun... and that TRIP sound!!   Hahahhaa!

Apparently something is hidden in testing video no one caught on to


It's actually not hidden at all... it's in CLEAR PLAIN SIGHT if you know what to look for.

I'll just leave a little hint here...

Do you think it has something to do with that gold image where the disc should be?

Guys is it ok to brag again?! Tommy made me but a Tandy vision and it's fricken nice! Games included in sale from eBay for $70 (All together). I got a nice deal!

 

One thing to note with these systems is rubbing the cart chip with rubbing alcohol and q-tips is required, BUT I had to get a cart chip with a bunch of alcohol, insert into the system about 10 times, and then clean the cart again. This removed decades oh tar from the socket 😂😂🤲

Maybe a tease of the physical media? I also wondered about the chair on the other side of the testing table. The blue label on the chair looks like it might just be instructions on adjusting the chair. But the blue and white coloring of the label matches the Amico scheme. Teasing the Amico box art?


Nope.  That's not it.

I’m surprised there are no Christmas ornaments yet. 


Next year for sure!

 

Too busy with everything else this year.

Our team was able to do more shirts, hats, etc. but things like ornaments would need to be custom, etc.

Yet another reason Amico will do well. The CEO has integrity. He's speaks the truth, not what he thinks you want to hear.  Rare and refreshing.

 

Thank you for the kind words.  Appreciate it.

 

I agree.

:)

I don't watch a lot of YouTube videos, but this one was EXCELLENT!!  I highly recommend it.


Agreed!  His content is always excellent and high quality.

 

It's clear that he spends a LOT of time on his videos.  Really great stuff.

Was there any talk of a golf game for the Amico?


Yep!

 

:)


Not for launch but hopefully by this time next year.  No promises.  The developer is doing some important stuff for us

Jon Hare of Sensible Software has been very involved in the development of Sociable Soccer.  It's a nice modern take on the original Sensi.

 

Please @Tommy Tallarico bring Sensible Soccer to the Amico 🙏


Aaaaah!!   That makes sense!


(see what I did there?)

Concrete, who is making the Spades game, made the PBA Challenge game for mobile and likely to get the nod for bowling on the Amico. 


Wouldn't That Be Something?

Hey... look at that... over 10M downloads just on Android alone.  And over 275,000 reviews at over 4 stars?  That's pretty cool. 

And look at that... they also do PGA Golf.

 

Huh... that's interesting.

Hello @Tommy Tallarico im a new fan of intellivision who cant wait to get my hands on the amico. i was just wanting to ask a few questions in hopes of them getting answered by you or the community.

Hi there Chip!  Welcome to the fun!

 

 

On 12/9/2020 at 9:00 AM, Chip2020 said:

1.hows it going with 3rd party licenses, like is there any big names that we havent heard of cus i would go nuts if sega made new versions of Daytona usa (only played virtual racing nut i know thats just a way more better version) and the castle (from the sega sg 1000) were on the amico

 

3rd party licenses are going GREAT!  Lots of fun things to announce in 2021 when the time is right.

 

 

On 12/9/2020 at 9:00 AM, Chip2020 said:

2.if you cant answer 1 then is there any date coming up to where something like question 1 can be answered or just when we can get new info

See above.   :)

 

On 12/9/2020 at 9:00 AM, Chip2020 said:

3.any chance we could se a exclusive versoin of among us on the amico , i know it sounds far feched but i think it would be possible to get it a e10+ rateing and would be perfect for the amico as a party game

We are not actively seeking that at this point in time. 

 

 

 

On 12/9/2020 at 9:00 AM, Chip2020 said:

4.any more big board games or card games coming to the amico (would love to see uno on there)

Yes.  For sure.  A lot more on the horizon.  Mattel owns Uno.   I agree with you.  That would be a perfect fit for Amico and we already have the Hot Wheels license with them.   :)

 

 

On 12/9/2020 at 9:00 AM, Chip2020 said:

5.i dont know if anyone asked this before but is the nightstalker game(the one im most excited about) 4 player. i know we seen it with 3  and there was space for a forth but i just wanna make sure

Yep!  4 player.

 

On 12/9/2020 at 9:00 AM, Chip2020 said:

6. would a adventure game like zelda orcerina of time be possible on the amico and be allowed

 

For sure.  If the controls make sense and it's a more simple type of game.

 

On 12/9/2020 at 9:00 AM, Chip2020 said:

thanks to tommy and all eles who answer my questions and cant wait to see more info and get my hands on the amico in 2021

 


Thanks for stopping by!  Hope you'll stick around and join in the fun.

The title comes from the name of the developer, Sensible Software.  They were aquired by Codemasters who used the name Sensible World of Soccer in a 2007 release and it's still available on Xbox marketplace.


Damn!  You beat me to it!

Wait, I'm a bit confused. If IE already has a developer working on a golf game, why could they be talking to "a number of different folks right now"? Does the other golf game still need to have its developer assigned?


There are a few different approaches to golf.  PGA style and MINI style.   :)

@Tommy Tallarico

 

Quick question. My OG Intellivision is acting up and now only displays "EEEE D DD" when I put a game in. Can I still call the toll-free number on the bottom of the console for help? Or I could call collect at the California number. Or maybe you guys have updated the number?

Thanks a TON!


Yes.  It rings directly to my desk.

 

Talk to ya soon!!

:)

I think the original warranty was through Mattel... maybe you could check with them?  😂

 

Worst case scenario he gets a new Barbie out of it!
