I can't believe there is a picture!! I spent so much time, playing with my brother so long time ago! it certainly brings me so many nice memories. Long ago we used to play more "outside" like children these days completly ignore, but when storming or rains we did enjoyed our "Intellivision"

I always loved ours when I was a wee kid because the controllers reminded me of telephones. And I loved the little plastic cards that went in them. They reminded me of dredit cards.

This is pretty much what my paper route money went to when I was a kid. Back then, we thought the grpahics were so good compared to Atari. I remember playing this system for countless hours.

I still have mine, complete with the voice synthisiser unit.. B-52 Bomber, was a good one. My favorite was the game, I think it was called something like Sorcerer,, you controled a knight and a wizard who searched for scrolls and fought a dragon in the end.. I dont remember on how you beat the dragon..

This was a big purchase for my family way back in the eighties. My dad recently gave it to me and it still works. We have about 20 games also. My 11 year old son laughed at the graphics but back then this was the coolest thing!! And back then they didn't come out with a new system every 6 months so you played it for a long time!!

I felt completely spoiled when my dad and mom took me to get this system and a whole cartful of games. I still have the system and the games. Alas, they don't work anymore. I keep thinking a mechanical genius will come visit and I can get it fixed. I remember the distint "oily" smell of the games and plastic cards.

Man those controllers sucked. The graphics on the other hand ruled for the times. Dungeons and Dragons was the awesomest game on the system. After we got one I remember Colecovision came out and blew Intellivision out of the water. So I saved up and got that. Probably the shortest lifespan of a console that I ever owned. Look online for the Intellivision song. Quite possibly the gayest song ever created.

We were the FIRST ones on our block to have Intellivision! (ALL of my other friends still had Atari 2600s!) I remember, the system cost $250, my dad paid ½, & I mowed neighbors' lawns all summer long to come up with the other half! And, we had of the COOLEST games: Star Strike, Night Stalker, Lock 'n Chase, D.&D., Tron...

Burgertime was by far the best arcade translation to INTV. It even managed to rival Colecovision's version. Other good tanslations are Pac-Man, Q*Bert, Lock 'N Chase and Frogger and maybe Donkey Kong Jr. But there were some crappy translations like Donkey Kong. And it is believed that Coleco intentionally made their arcade games for Atari 2600 and INTV crappy on purpose just to make Colecovision look good. :-( Thank God they didn't do Burgertime! DK could have been SO much better, they could have blown the 2600 version away if they wanted. And it's too bad that Smurf game (the one that came out for 2600 and CV) was never released on INTV, would have been interesting. Ah, well.

Yes, I loved my Intellevison and still have it til this day. I use to sit there for hours and play baseball, basketball and NFL Football. Yeah the graphics were cheesy compared to today's video games but, it's all we had and we made the most of it. Thinking more about about we did mot know we were on the cusp of a video game revolution. Nevertheless I still spark it up from time to time and enjoy a a game of baseball. I also have the computer keyboard and voice module. And yes, all my paper route money went towards the Intellevision and buying more games!! Trust me on a cold snowy or rainy day it did not get any better than this!!

All these comments are bringing back such old memories. LOL... First I had Pong and then we got Intelevision. I remember a lot of the games mentioned. Anyone remember AstroSmash? I was part of a nationwide contest for that game and came in 13th in the country just missing the cut off to go to either Vegas or NY I don't remember, but I have a cool patch for entering. LMAO!!!

Lock n' Chase, Burger Time and by far D&D with that scary dragon noise and searching for quivers for hours and hours in the dark cooridoors. -Yup I was a young yuppie in the making. Thanks Dad! My sister still has the system and swears it works. If she's playing it I'm jealous. It really did kick Atari's A$$ but no one else had one. Again, -yuppie in the making

I cannot say enough good things about the Intelevision game system. My favourite games were Burgertime, Advanced Dungeons & Dragons, Tron Deadly Discs, Maze-A-Tron (which really had no point, but I didn't know it at the time), Frog Bog, Worm Whomper, B-17 Bomber (with the voice console) and Space Spartans (also with the voice console). Gosh, I still remember the opening monologue for B-17 Bomber - some ratty-sounding computer voice saying all serious "Mattel Electronics presents" and then a really ratty computer voice with a supposed Georgia accent saying "Beh Sehventeehn Baawmmerrr". ha ha ha ha!! I always that the bats in Advanced D & D sounding like someone shaking out a garbage bag. My cousin Joey, who giggled easily, would nearly stop breathing from laughing when we sat and played Frog Bog together. Here is a link to a site that shows screenshots from a lot of games, plus the overlay that you slipped into the controller. http://www.hotcom.com/intellivision/index.html

Is it still possible to get ones hands on intellivision and play it? Do they even work with todays tv's.
Jennifer - January 30, 2010 - Report this comment
I remember we had an Intelevision. I really wanted an Atari because ALL my friends had Atari. My mom said Intelevision was better. My dad was always a kid at heart and loved video games and toys. I think she thought of him while buying it...he played it more than anyone. I just wanted "Frogger".

I have my intellivision and many games for it in the garage. For some reason I have held on to it despite many moves and a divorce to boot! I think for a lark I will break it out this weekend and try to hook it up.

does any obne remember the horse racing game where you could place bets and play six or so players at a time. we use to all gather around screaming at the the screen for the horses to run faster. i remember my cousin whipping the horses via the control pad. Ah! those were the days. todays games completely lose me.

My all time favorite was advanced dungeons and dragons. you explored tunnels and mountains and had a little guy with a bow and arrow. I actually bought an intellivision and the game maybe 7 or 8 years ago for like $30 and beat the game in 15 minutes. it was still worth it though!

My older brother got this for his junior high school graduation when it was pretty new. For probably the next three years, I think his friends were over every day camped out in our living room playing this. A few years ago I found a PC version of about 50 of the Intellivision games, which I gave my brother for his birthday. My Playstation-raised nephews thought the graphics were hilariously awful :)
