    The crapstore called Family Dollar has 3 different Flashback games for $40.

    Each Flashback has 40 to 80 original games built into it and comes with controllers and overlays.

    So for the price we used to pay for a single game, you get a shipload of games and a mini console.

    I still have my Intellivision and last time I checked, about 10 years ago, it works perfect.

    #3 5 years ago

    I had an intellivision growing up and then a Turbo Grafx 16.
    Yes, I was different. Still am. And proud of it.

    The genesis is probably the best deal. some INTV games were REALLY bad. baseball, astrosmash and demon attack were my favorites. oh and dreadnaught factor.

    Well crap, there goes my investment of classic console games. ******* remakes!

    #5 5 years ago

    I was fond of dungeons and dragons and dracula for intellivision

    #6 5 years ago

    Still have my INTV hooked up and working. Prices on game boxes from 1981 or so at 40-60 dollars! I think the console was 400 then. Think I heard the Imagic stuff won't be included due to licensing, I have all those anyway they were usually a little better designed. Anyone remember Truckin'?

    #7 5 years ago

    mmmm, Intellivision. I bought one of those when they first came out (I was a soph in HS). I think it cost me about $200. It was great! I remember going to LaBelles (catalog shopping place) and buying it. Fond memories.

    edit: maybe the price was higher as I saw in the post above mine... Regardless, to me at that time, it was a lot of money!

    #8 5 years ago

    Had an Intellivision growing up. Imagic's "Microsurgeon" drove me nuts when I was 12 or so. Absolutely hated it - probably the first time I learned that not all video games are fun. No, I did not grow up to be a doctor.

    Then again, I loved "Lock 'n' Chase" ("Ghetto Pac-Man" according to Atari 2600 owning friends.) and didn't grow up to be a bank robber either.

    Did buy some sort of plug and play Intellivision controller 10 or so years ago that connected to a TV via RCA cables and had 20(?) games built in. Afraid it didn't really stand the test of time for me.

    To tie this back to pinball though - I distinctly remember seeing an Intellivision pinball game listed in the little catalog that came with cartridges, but never once did I ever see a copy of it at any store. Wonder if it was produced in smaller numbers or if I was just unlucky. I really wanted it even back then.

    #9 5 years ago

    I think one of the pre-loaded games in the Intellivision Flashback console is pinball.

    That's pretty damn cool that they accept cartridges. It wasn't that long ago that I had my Genesis hooked up. My 15 year-old son loved the Sonic games. We bought the "Genesis Collection" for the 360. I'm tempted on the Colecovision unit. They had the best version of Donkey Kong for the earlier consoles and Mr. Do was fun.

    Quoted from badbilly27:

    Played this at my friends house all the time and football on intellivision. Football was a staple - loved that game.

    My brother and I completely broke the football game by stumbling onto an exploit that you couldn't really counter.

    If I remember correctly, if you were on offense, you controlled the QB. Prior to the play, you would pick a running or passing play. One play in particular had the receiver run to the sideline near the line of scrimmage. On defense, only the human controlled player could intercept the ball, and the computer controlled players were pretty garbage. So, pick the sideline pass play every time. Snap the ball and run the QB toward the opposite sideline. If you opponent covers the receiver - don't pass and just run instead. If they cover the QB - pass the ball and run with the receiver. There was just no possible way to defend against it. 1st downs guaranteed. Playing with a "You can't do that or I'll tell mom" rule was the only way, and that didn't work since we'd both do it anyway and mom didn't want to hear any of that "Mike ran the wrong play!" shit.

    High score on Astrosmash though? That's when the fights would start.

    wonder if these new coleco controllers might work on the old systems?? seems like those ol' controllers were always crappin' out!

    #22 5 years ago

    They're emulated and some of the games don't play well. Still, not horrible for 40 bucks.

    #23 5 years ago

    I still have a Sega Gensis and the box and manuals too. have about 10-15 a list titles for it as well. My NES is a different story. I have 100 plus games of that. I like to have guests over to relive the glory days. If I do not have a game they loved playing when they were younger, I go out and get it ASAP.

    Quoted from ENDOFLINE:

    According to the Atariage forum the old controllers are not compatible with the new.

    Quoted from ENDOFLINE:

    On the Atari version of the Flashback, one wire had to be moved to make it compatible.

    Don't know on Colecovision.

    Quoted from vid1900:

    Don't know on Colecovision.

    Sounds to me like they intentionally moved one wire just to say they were incompatible and thus wouldn't have to deal with the support issues surrounded unintended use.

    #28 5 years ago

    Wow, I'm definitely onboard for the Colecovision and Intellivision consoles. The Atari Flashback controllers feel better the original controllers. I wonder if these controllers actually feel better too.

    Quoted from KloggMonkey:

    This is why I have the Colecovision emulator on 3 systems. Computer, Nintendo DS and the Dreamcast. The Dreamcast is hooked up to a 70" through the VGA input. It puts out 720X480. Colecovision never looked this good back in the day.

    #35 5 years ago

    OpenEMU is turning out to be a great multi-system emulator for Mac OS X.

    #36 5 years ago

    Now I want to hook my Coleco that's in my basement back up and play Ladybug. lol I hadn't thought about that game in decades.

    #37 5 years ago

    I haven't played intellivision in years, but I can still hear that baseball guy saying "YER OUT!"

    The crowd noise just popped into my head!

    I used to play a lot of Utopia. I tried to play it semi-recently. I think I've lost my imagination, I had no idea what was going on.

    #40 5 years ago

    The sports games on Intellivision were the best of their time for sure. The NHL hockey was great too when you "dumped" a player and the ref would randomly put you to the box.

    Intellivision was a great system. I have the original and a cuttle cart, with EVERY game on it. Cost about $100 but worth every penny.

    "Pinball" for Intellivision is okay, not great, but just okay if anyone was curious.

    I can hear the crowd noise, "Yer Out!", and the "You just wiped out while skiing" noise in my head perfectly. Good times.

    #43 5 years ago

    DG has them with free shipping for $40 and up and show all three systems in stock:

    We spent a lot of late nights going down mountains of perfectly groomed powder.

    #45 5 years ago

    One thing to note- a few years back they had some of those intellivision all in one controllers and I bought one, but it would not play like the games used to.

    #46 5 years ago

    Wonder if the super action controllers will work....colecovision super action controller proto1 full.jpg

    Super Action Boxing with Rocky and Mr. T and the Super Action Baseball games were some of the best of the era...sadly, along with Donkey Kong...not included with the flashback. Still though... Zaxxon!!!!
