Title: Intellivision games are still a thing
Post by: Juju on May 22, 2017, 02:44:41 am
Yep. It's a small company based in Montréal and Phoenix who makes a few interesting homebrews for Intellivision/Colecovision/NES/SNES. It's pretty cool.

Also have some gameplay of their game Sydney Hunter & The Sacred Tribe (in French), it looks pretty amazing.

Oh, as a bonus they even bought the rights to the Acclaim and LJN brands. You know that one with the rainbow logo everyone hates? A small homebrew maker from Montréal, Canada bought it. Nice.

Yup, i knew them since like 2011 or something. At the time, they were working on a demake of Zelda for the Colecovision.
Sadly, when they became a Nintendo-licensed developer, they had to scrap the project.
Another thing they released on cart was a port of Mario Bros. (the arcade game, not the NES game) for the Colecovision, complete with a red controller.
Needless to say, we are not going to see them ever again.

Wow that game looks amazing and seems very fun. Glad to see some Intellivision homebrew being done. Also props for the Montreal Expos cap :D

I dunno if a ROM is available somewhere. I definitively would like to play it too.

Welcome to Codewalrus by the way :)

It's sold in cartridges as a commercial product, not sure if they make the ROM available for download.

Thanks for the post Juju. I remember wanting a Colecovision so badly when I was 10 years old... it was the best gaming system around in 1982. But money was tight and my parents only purchased the Intellivision. As such, the Intellivision became one of my favorite consoles from my childhood days.

I remade 2 Intellivision games for the TI-89 series calcs: Astrosmash and Advanced Dungeons & Dragons.
