Telesys games sold in Canada?

Recommended Posts

I have several r4s and a few r5s but I cannot find any games from Telesys. I live in Ontario and the stores that I bought my rarer stuff from do not have them. Does anyone know if Telesys games were sold in Canada?

You would think so since they were sold in Europe, albeit in limited quantities.  My guess is they were not widely distributed.

I live in Canada and I can unequivocally state that I had Cosmic Creeps and Fast Food in the 80s, purchased locally. 

 

Do you recall where? -- Was it a major chain store or a local independent retailer?

 

I grew-up in Halifax, and I too never saw any Telesys games at retail.

I’d be lying if I said I definitively remembered specific stores for specific carts, but if I were betting on it, I’d go with Consumers Distributing.  We got a fair bit of our Atari stuff there in the early-mid 80s.

I don t know how it was up there, but down here little independent stop-and-robs bought boxes of clearance games during the crash, and stocked their shelves with them. Everyone had Atari games for sale at the time.

I grew up in Newfoundland Canada, my cousin had Fast Food, and my friend had CocoNuts.
