Intellivision put out a pretty detailed & in-depth video today on the Amico. Developer interviews, new gameplay footage, hardware breakdown & more info. Worth a watch if you are curious about the upcoming console.
Stress testing the upcoming Amico controller w/ Tommy Tallarico
Brett Weiss – Lots of us old guys are super excited for the Intellivision Amico. We’ve pre-ordered the console for such games as re-imagined versions of Moon Patrol, Shark! Shark!, Night Stalker, and BurgerTime. But what about the overall success of the system among the general public? Does it need a killer app? A single game that will sell tons of consoles? Could it be Earthworm Jim?
Modern Classic – Mattel’s Intellivision was the first serious challenge to the Atari VCS/2600, released nationwide in 1980. I tell the console’s story, show you the hardware and some of the games, give tips on starting your collection and even open a brand new, still in shrinkwrap 1982 copy of Burgertime on camera!
There was a new Intellivision Amico trailer that was posted on March 17th 2020 and while I was looking forward to it because it contained footage for 23 upcoming games, the trailer also provided new pre-order information.
So I thought it would be fun to pull apart the trailer, game by game, see if I could identify the game, and rank how interested I am in that particular game.
