INTELLIVISION LIVES! (PC & MAC)

REVIEWS

As much documentary as it is game compilation, Intellivision Lives! guides users through the machine's development and marketing....The games themselves hold up surprisingly well....young gamers accustomed to the millions of polygons and complex controls of today's games would do well to take a look at games that made their dads and uncles drool. NO WELL-ROUNDED GAME ENTHUSIAST SHOULD PASS UP A CHANCE TO DIVE INTO THE CRUDE - BUT FASCINATING - WORLD OF INTELLIVISION LIVES!

If you ever used, owned, wished you had owned, or were at all interested in the Intellivision, you should definitely get a copy of Intellivision Lives! With truly comprehensive background information and an enormous selection of games, INTELLIVISION LIVES! SETS A NEW STANDARD FOR EMULATION PACKAGES."

> CNET Gamecenter.com

[A] stunning Intellivision compilation...many of its games are classics that cannot be found elsewhere. Overall, the presentation is excellent.... The emulator is also well-done.... [E]asily equal in quality to any of the Namco Museums or Midway collections, AND AT LESS THAN $30.00, IT BELONGS ON THE SHELF OF EVERY NEXT GENERATION READER.

> Next Generation Magazine
April 1999

"[A] well-balanced package that contains a great deal of history, personality, and a whole lot of classic games. If you have any sort of interest in the classic gaming consoles of the '70s and '80s, IT'S AN EXCELLENT VALUE FOR THE MONEY AND WELL WORTH THE PURCHASE.

In 1980, the world's largest toy company put its future into the hands of some inexperienced fresh-from-college kids: the programmers of the company's Intellivision video game system.

In a three-year roller-coaster ride, Intellivision soared into three million homes and made tens of millions of dollars - then crashed and almost bankrupted the company.

Now hear the original Intellivision designers tell the often-funny, often-bizarre story of the 1980s video game frenzy: constant deadlines, all-night programming marathons, marketing battles, corporate wars, practical jokes and working in what one described as a giant dorm room.

Then play the original games, in all their simple, blocky-graphics glory. You'll discover what the frenzy was all about: these games are as fun and addictive today as they were nearly 20 years ago!
