Have not heard. Might be when the console launches. So "soon" perhaps?

Flying Tigers looks like fun.

 

More shooters like Flying Tigers and other arcade style games as well as platformers would go a long way to broadening the potential user base to include more retro gamers.

In my opinion its the best looking Amico game, but the gameplay seems to bit kinda boring and bare.  I hope they reach Cave levels of polish on this one.

According to Wikipedia for the Intellivision Amico, it says Flying Tigers is coming in Q2 of 2022.

That Wiki also lists games like Tron the last time I looked. So I wouldn't necessarily trust it.

I would like to see more of FT too. Some of the gameplay did seem slow, but I liked the looks of it.

Yeah, Tron has been on there for a while.  I know Wikipedia isn't that trustworthy.  Where else is there a list of Amico game releases?  It would be nice to have another source with more accurate information.

I stopped keeping tabs on them. From the last list I had games like the "Running Man Game", Cats With Swords, and maybe one other had stopped being worked on and Games like Flying Tigers, Liars Dice, Incan Gold, and Tellestrations were games I did not have on there.

Wikipedia references an Edge Magazine article for Amico Tron Deadly Discs.  So it would be that magazine you wouldn't trust.

So you also couldn't trust the Wiki. :P

 

I just took a glance at it and it lists Imagic games which I'm pretty sure have not been worked on yet. It looks like some list that got excited over one of those early videos of "we want all these old games" and then puked them up onto the wiki.

 

Not to mention Cornhole is listed as Oct. 9th, 2021 release........ 🙄

Cornhole is currently a packin so it should ship with the system.  The estimated dates Wikipedia has for some of the Imagic games are nine to twelve months after launch, so that sounds like the second set of fifty games they have planned for the future.  They have shown some test animations for Safe Cracker so some preliminary work has been done.

I'd like to see more of this one since it seems to be the game to fully utilize all aspects of the controller.
