Intellivision Lives!

1980 marked the appearance of Mattel’s Intellivision, in heated competition with the Atari 2600 and paved the way for the downfall of the market in 1984, a year before the Nintendo Entertainment System hit the streets of North America. The Intellivision has always been an integral part in the history of video games, but most gamers simply omit it due to striking similarities to the 2600. Now it’s coming to the Nintendo GameCube in order to honor the history and make sure that the memories of these great, classic games never dies. Intellivision Lives!

word on the street

Retro. Anyone looking to check out a huge blast from the past need look no further. If you’ve already sold your Intellivision and its cartridges and have already begun to regret the decision, chances are you’re looking forward to this game more than anyone else. With a price tag that would make most grown men weep, it’s easily one of the best old school retro collections out there.

press release notes

"We're excited to have Intellivision Lives! available for everyone," said Keith Robinson, president/co-founder of Intellivision Productions, Inc. and an original Blue Sky Ranger. "Now gamers can enjoy their favorite Intellivision games on the three most popular gaming consoles! Intellivision Lives! is more than just a game collection. With all these extra features, the games have taken on a new life for a new generation of video game players."

overall

Intellivision Lives! is set for a release on the Nintendo GameCube this week, so we’d advise you to pick the game up if you need a retro boost. Hey, remember the 80’s? I sure do. Be sure to pick up George Michael’s Ladies and Gentlemen The Best Of, as well as plenty of Bugles. You may not want to set down the controller. Otherwise, you may have to pass this collection up.
