Bet on Collectorvision club's 2020 secret game?

Recommended Posts

Just for fun.

 

I though it would be  Cavern Fighter  or Circus.

 

But Retroillucid said in club 2020 post :

It's a port of a popular arcade game (made from scratch) and it has never been released on Atari, Intellivision, ColecoVision, MSX or SG-1000 console

so it can not be Circus  nor Cavern Fighter. ...   any guess?

Space Firebird by Gremlin/Sega?

Would be great.  It is a game by Miyamoto !

I would have guessed Phoenix (for a multitude of obvious reasons), but it was released for the 2600 and possibly other systems that I am too lazy to check.

Nintendo 's Radar Scope? 

why? because an arcade game conversion is always selling a lot, but a Nintendo IP has to stay discreet any C & D action...

I'm going way out on a limb here. But, im having trouble trying to figure it out because so many games did in fact get ported to various systems and others have already been ported to Colecovision. But, I've got one (and feel free to shoot me down) that was semi-popular, never ported (as far as I know), and just about fits in the proper time period: Peter Pack Rat.

I have a feeling it's going to be one of these Exidy arcade games:

 

Bandido
Circus
Crash (a.k.a. Dodge 'Em)
Crush Roller
Hard Hat
 

:)

If it's one of those, I want a refund! 😉

 

From what J-F has said, it is one of the 5 best games that CollectorVision has developed, so I don't think any in your list would qualify. However, someone did show off a Circus WIP in the forums a while ago.

I recall a time a few years ago when Crush Roller often came up in discussions. So it's either that or Bandido or Hard Hat. Circus and Crash were released on other early consoles, notably the Atari 2600.

As in Circus Atari for the 2600?

It seems a bit counter-intuitive that something would be a top 5 arcade game for Collectorvision but no one has been interested in porting it. Will be interesting to see what it is.

I always liked crush roller/make trax.   I'd be good with that...not so much crash.

Circus is going to be release in like in a month or two

I did some works on Bandido and Hard Hat 
Those games should see the light of day in 2021

i would have think to Scramble.  In fact i see well a slighty modified version of Cavern Fighter renamed Scramble...

 

But Scramble exists also on Atari 2600  and MSX.   So not that one too.

Sinistar was only ever a prototype on consoles and only released in arcade collections in the late 90s. I could say the same thing about Tempest. 

 

Of course, I’m still all for Animal Land Murder Mystery, but that’s not an Arcade game and I don’t think anyone will ever translate all the Japanese text into English.

And the ColecoVision doesn't have enough maze games as it is, so yeah.  :)

Crush Roller/Make Trax is a decent game, would be welcome (reminds me of Amidar, was that one ever released for the Colecovision via homebrew?)

Maybe they're getting Zoo Keeper out before Johnnywc does on Atari 2600 :D

Amidar was never made for ColecoVision, probably because Pepper II is the same kind of game, only better.  ;)

And now I am reminded to try and play Pepper II again.  You know why I keep forgetting about Pepper II right?  I always want to play the original before the sequel!  Yuck yuck

That would be awesome.  However, at my age, I would end up in carpal tunnel braces trying to play Zoo Keeper with original Coleco controllers!
