INTELLIVISION GREATEST HITS
The major types of games are all represented here: sports, space shooter, RPG. In addition to the games, this collection also has some DVD-like special features, namely old Intellivision commercials and interviews conducted with some of the Intellivision programmers, which is a nice chunk of history. There are also screens that tell you a bit about Intellivision's past, making this not just a game collection, but an interesting history lesson about the beginnings of gaming.
This is all the code from the original games, no polish, no updates, just adapted to play on a PC or Mac. Yes, theyre blocky, but thats the way games looked back then. Just considering what kind of juggling had to be done to accomodate these graphics onto a high-end machine with a gigabyte of RAM, 128MB of RAM just on the video card, and running Windows makes me give it a high score.
Ive really been enjoying this collection, but I do see a problem with it. If you are under 26 you're probably not going to be all that jazzed about it, which is a shame. If for no other reason, you should at least check this out and view it like a special on the History Channel. If it werent for games like Tower of Doom and Stadium Mud Buggies, you wouldnt be playing Baldurs Gate or Midnight Club 2 today.

Here they are! The favorite Intellivision games - the ones people keep coming back to again and again!
These two collections of Intellivision games for PC and Mac are on store shelves now across the USA! Both are called Intellivision Greatest Hits. One collection includes 25 games and comes in a box. The other collection includes 10 games and is sold in a CD jewel case. (See complete list of games in column at right.) The 25-game collection retails for $19.99, the 10-game collection for $9.99.
These collections are a great introduction to the Intellivision system, or a great re-introduction for the Intellivision fan returning after twenty years. A terrific gift!
Both collections run on Windows 98/Me/2000/XP and on Mac OS 8/9/X (runs in Classic Mode on Mac OS X).
Rollover and pull-down menus provide instant navigation to games and instructions!
Instructions show how controls are mapped to the computer keyboard. Or plug in a standard controller and map the controls to it. Intellivision Greatest Hits remembers how you've configured each game! (PC only.)
Games are fully emulated - meaning you are playing the actual game code from the original Intellivision cartridges on your PC or Mac. Graphics, sounds, and game play are straight from the 1980s!
History section tells the story of Intellivision. 25-game version includes video clips of programmers and classic commercials!

A few of my favorite Intellivision games are missing.
Check our other PC/Mac collections, Intellivision Lives! and Intellivision Rocks, to see if the games are on one of those. However, legal restrictions keep us from including some of the classic games that were based on movies or arcade machines.
I bought one and am having a technical problem.
