Description

The sequel to Intellivision Lives!, this compilation includes over 30 more emulated Intellivision games, primarily those originally published by Activision and Imagic. It also has the complete library of Intellivoice games (minus Tron Solar Sailer, due to licensing restrictions) and a complete library of Entertainment Computer System (ECS) games (again, minus a few licensed titles), and some unreleased games. The complete list of games follows:

  • Atlantis
  • B-17 Bomber (Intellivoice)
  • Beamrider
  • Beauty and the Beast
  • Bomb Squad (Intellivoice)
  • Deep Pockets
  • Demon Attack
  • Dracula
  • Dragonfire
  • Fathom
  • Game Factory (ECS; previously unreleased)
  • Happy Trails
  • Ice Trek
  • League of Light (previously unreleased)
  • Magic Carousel (Intellivoice; previously unreleased)
  • Melody Blaster (ECS)
  • Microsurgeon
  • Mind Strike (ECS)
  • Minotaur (debugged version)
  • Mr. BASIC Meets Bits N' Bytes (ECS)
  • Nova Blast
  • Number Jumble (ECS)
  • Pitfall
  • River Raid
  • Robot Rubble (previously unreleased)
  • Safecracker
  • Space Spartans (Intellivoice)
  • Stampede
  • Swords & Serpents
  • The Dreadnaught Factor
  • Thin Ice (release version)
  • Tropical Trouble
  • Truckin'
  • White Water!
  • World Series Baseball (ECS; Intellivoice)
  • Worm Whomper


Each of these games is played via a very accurate emulator. In fact, there are three emulators included on the disc: DOS, Windows, and Macintosh. But there's more to the package than just emulated games. Each game is complete with a box scan, overlay scan (if applicable), instructions, and credits. There's also a museum of Intellivision oddities, including the complete video of several Intellivision commercials.

Trivia

Soundtrack

This is a multi-mode CD. Not only is it compatible with both Windows and Macintosh, you can also put it in your CD player and listen to three music tracks. First, there's "Surfin' on Thin Ice," a remix of the original Thin Ice music, both by George "The Fat Man" Sanger. (The Thin Ice theme was Sanger's very first music sale for a video game, but by no means his last.) Second, there's "Billiard Blues" by Jimmy Martin. This is actually a combination of Martin's original piano performance and the MIDI file that was converted for use with Deep Pockets. Lastly, there's "Compare THIS," an electronica cut by Confusium and inspired (and including samples from) the George Plimpton Intellivision commercials.
