Plug N Play Intellivision Flashback Classic Game Console
Before Nintendo or the Sega Genesis, there was Intellivision, a home console that gave Atari a run for its money with a host of first-gen gaming classics. The warm glow of nostalgia emanates from each of the 60 games built directly into the console, which include Astrosmash and World Championship Baseball. Two authentic retro controllers accompany the system, as do a series of limited-edition overlays for collectors.
Great gaming console for.money, but feel it should contain all the control game overlays and not a few. The instructions mention you can purchase more overlays at a certain website, but that website no longer exists. We found a different website so we could at least get directions on how to play each game.
If you liked the Intellivision, you will probably like the Flashback. The controllers are very faithful reproductions of the original. Gameplay is as I remember (and I still have my original Intellivision, which I take out and play, from time-to-time). I am a bit surprised by some of the games that are included. I certainly would have preferred some of the classic Intellivision games over some of the \"homebrew\" games. Also, some of the best games for the Intellivision were produced by Imagic and Activision. It is too bad that none of them were included. All-in-all though, I am happy with my purchase. One of my friends was in town during the Holidays, and we played a few of the games. It was like we were teenagers again in the late 70s and early 80s. This certainly brings back many good memories.
