The tasty overlay images are from our friend WEBmikey’s Flickr. (You might remember Mikey from this killer shot.) The tasty box images are from The Old Computer, with the exception of Masters of the Universe, which I got from Moby Games.

I had no idea that Intellivision developed the very first MOTU video game. It came out in 1983 and was released in the 2600 format as well. See a demo here.

Intellivision released three Tron games in 1982: Tron: Deadly Discs, Tron: Maze-a-Tron, and Tron: Solar Sailor. Only Deadly Discs was adapted for the 2600, and it’s the only one I’ve played.

My first installment on overlays/boxes is here.

    Dood wtf! Why is Intellivision’s Demon Attack better than the Atari version, with a killer mothership and everything?! I’m guessing memory issues? Hmph.

    My best friend had an Intellivision with a few games. Our all-time favorite to play head-to-head were the Biplanes in Triple Action (you can find the instruction manual and overlay art on that link).

    What’s crazy is the “Fun Fact” they have posted there: “FUN FACT: More hours were spent in the programming cubicles playing Biplanes than any other Intellivision game. Although it’s one of the simplest, many programmers felt it was the most challenging and fun of the two-person games. The first time you deliberately stall, go into a free fall, then pull out with a backward loop at the last second to blast your opponent at pointblank range is a joy!” …my friend totally had that move down and would nail me almost every single time.

    Mikey, I shall continue to plunder your Flickr goldmine! Thanks, and keep it coming.

    Lefty: I’m dying to get an Intellivision. A lot of the games are more challenging and fun than the 2600 catalog (which was much bigger, obviously).
