Shark Shark is fun. I need to track down a cart someday(only played thru emulation). They did release Feeding Frenzy as update on Xbox 360. i suppose the PS III has something similar.

Any Intellivision owner?

Yes, Shark! Shark! Is very good.  However, in sea-related games, my preference (and I'm almost ashamed to admit this) is Sea Quest for Atari VCS.

I wish it were done for the Intellivision.

SeaQuest is indeed a fun game.  I wonder why it was never ported to the INTV.

That is a fun game DZ. Activision really released some great games. I always wondered why the Intellivision got Happy Trails and the 2600 or Colecovision did not, there were enough key pads that one could have been made to work for the 2600 and of course the Coleco stick would have been fine.

I just noticed that I sorted the thread wrongly, and I ended up replying to a very old comment.

Sorry for that.

Hahahaha

It's all good, nothing wrong with reviving an interesting point like that.

The Intellivision definately did have a controller way ahead of its time, even if it didn't work that well.

I find that I like the disc but the issue is holding the controller.  It really could have used a better design from that perspective.

It was the first system to be confused in its classification. Was it 10-bit or 16-bit? Intellivision they did it all first. :)

I just finished reading it.  Awesome article!  Looks like Match 5 is about to be released and there are other games getting ready.  I myself am waiting to get the updated version of DK Arcade Elektronite is putting out.  :)

Don't forget about Rocketeer and KillerBotz!  AA user GroovyBee has finally taken some time to program for the Intellivision and so far he's on a roll!
