Elektronite Continues Work Bringing Tetris to Mattel Intellivision

Tetris is the title that probably single handedly handed Nintendo the portable market in the late 80’s.  This was accomplished via some shrewd business maneuvering with the right people on both sides of the table.  It was also the pack-in title (remember those?) for the newly released Nintendo Game Boy.  This single move is what […]

Defender of the Crown Coming to Mattel Intellivision

Recently we covered the sale of Cinemaware, the owners of the Defender of the Crown games, to Starbreeze.  Well, in the comments of that article we were alerted to a legal port of Defender of the Crown to the Mattel Intellivision.  Once I heard this, I knew I had to bring forward an article covering […]

Revenge of the License: Boxing Games and Karma

Humanity has a few personality quirks we’ve spent the last several thousand years failing to breed out of existence.

New Game- MS. Pac-Man Ported to Intellivision

Pac-Man had to go solo, single, on the Mattel Intellivision since his wife, Ms. Pac-Man was unable to make the jump.  That has not stopped homebrew developers from helping out the Misses.  Carl Mueller Jr has taken up the reigns of porting Ms. Pac-Man over and, well, check out the video after the jump to […]

The Mattel Intellivision is a console that was not all that well received by the gaming community of the early 80’s but that has not stopped homebrew developers from continuing to support it.  One such homebrew publisher is Collectorvision (we like these guys as evidenced here).  Princess Quest was originally a Colecovision title, another console […]

5 Obscure 8-Bit Gaming Licenses You Don’t See Anymore
