oprainfall | Intellivision is Coming to Evercade

 

Blaze Entertainment is still busy making new partnerships in the name of bringing more retro games to the Evercade. This time around, they announced 12 Intellivision games coming on one cartridge. The Intellivision Collection 1 cartridge will be launching sometime this Fall according to the press release, and will be made available by their partner retailers. Find your region on that page to see which retailers in your area are partnered with Blaze Entertainment. As you may have guessed by the name of the cartridge, more Intellivision game collections are planned to come to the Evercade beyond this one.

Of the twelve games included on the Intellivision Collection 1 cartridge, three have been announced so far, so let’s take a look:

 

Astrosmash | Original Release: 1981


Man a laser cannon at the bottom of the screen and blast away incoming hazards like bombs, meteors, and more. Earn as many points as you can by destroying hazards and not letting them slip past your defenses, as this will cost you points!

Astrosmash | Blast Stuff to Bits!

 

Frog Bog  |  Original Release: 1981


Eat as many flies as you can in three minutes. Jump between a pair of lily pads to nab the little buzzy pests out of the air and fill your belly! Avoid falling off into the water, as swimming and getting back on the lily pads will eat up precious time.Frog Bog | Retro Fly Catching

 

Night Stalker  |  Original Release: 1982


Make your way to the gun that appears at a random spot in the maze, while avoiding bats, robots, and spiders! Once you grab it, you have limited shots. When it runs out of ammo, the gun will appear in a new random place in the maze. Use your shots wisely!Night Stalker | Survive a Maze of Baddies!

Intellivision


Originally released by Mattel Electronics in the US market back in 1979, Intellivision was a portmanteau of “Intelligent Television”. The line of consoles would go on to launch around the world. It saw 125 titles launch for it during its life span, some of which were educational cartridges. The Intellivision was discontinued by around 1990.

Intellivision games were able to use as much as 16Kb of ROM (Read-Only Memory) in some cases, which was more than double that available on other home consoles of the time. The hardware allowed for a significant graphical improvement compared to the preceding console generation.

About Michael Fontanini

Michael is a veteran gamer in his late 30s, who grew up around video games, with fond memories of the oldies like the NES, SNES, and N64 among others. He loves Nintendo, but also plays a lot of games on his PC. Michael also enjoys going for walks/bike rides, loves animals, and enjoys thunderstorms (and science in general).

I love Nintendo but I also play a lot of game's on PC, many of which are on steam. My favorite Nintendo game's include Zelda, Metroid, and Smash Bros to name a few. On PC I love the Half-Life games, as well as most all of the Source Engine games just to name a few.
