My first homegame experiences was on friends computers; Texas Instruments 99/4A and Commodore 64 in the early 80:s
When I got my Intellivision most of my friends had a Commodore 64 and my Intellivision could not quite compete with that apart from a few of games.
That was "Tower Of Doom", "Atlantis" and "Tennis".
I must say that "Tennis" still holds up. It is really fun and still a hit at my "retro game-nights" with the Intellivision.
It´s great that newer versions are coming out, I alway had the feeling that the full potential of the graphics did not always come out in those days.
In 1988 i bought a Commodore 128D which I sold a couple of years later and got a Commodore Amiga 500.
I sold that when the Amiga 1200 was about to be released with the intention of buying one but I never did.
The Intellivision however stayed, and I am really glad that I kept it!
My plans are to expand my game collection for the Intellivision ( Pac-Man, Utopia, Thunder Castle, Burger Time and the new Donkey Kong are the titles I am most interested in right now) and also buying a Commodore 64 or 128 and an Amiga 500.
EDIT: And an ECS Keyboard and Synthesizer and the homebrew Christmas Carol vs. The Ghost of Christmas Presents
Great that the Intellivision Lives!
When looking for an Inty forum I first came across intellivision.us (where I have the same introduction...) and later this forum. And then to my surprise I found out about the Inty-thread on AtariAge that seems to be the dominant forum for Intellivision... WTF? (pardon my french)
Well, I´m sticking to this and .us
