Spectravideo International Ltd.


Spectravision produced a large number of 2600 titles and was doing quite well until the video game crash of 1983-84. Perhaps best known for producing the mail-order only game Chase the Chuck Wagon, Spectravision had a decent lineup including many rare games that are sought after today such as Bumper Bash and Mangia'.

Spectravision was the only company to deliver a keyboard add-on for the 2600, the Compumate, although many had made similar promises, including Atari. The company appears to have become defunct in 1988, when the brand was sold to the United Kingdom company Ash & Newman, according to
