Intellivision Special

The Intellivision video game console was launched by Mattel Electronics in 1979. It was a direct competitor to the Atari VCS (aka the 2600) and doesn’t tend to get much love, because – like the Atari 2600 – the games are pretty basic. The disc-like controllers were unorthodox too, although each controller does have a numeric keypad, which allows for some complex gaming.

The Intellivision does play host to a number of classics in its catalogue. Games that have stood the test of time, in spite of the machine’s limitations.

This week I’m going to be publishing a series of Intellivision game grabs, plus write-ups about each of the games.
