Launched in 1979, Intellivision was one of the most popular home video game consoles of all time.
Over the years, the Intellivision released 125 games that made our childhood special. Do you remember B-17 Bomber, Bomb Squad, Donkey Kong, or Beauty and the Beast? These games were fun, creative, and entertaining. They spawned a series of movies, comic books, and modern video games, and even gave some companies their identity.
Let’s take a look at the Top 10 Intellivision Games Of All Time:
10. Beauty & the Beast
A timeless theme and smooth gameplay make Beauty & the Beast one of the hottest Intellivision titles ever released. The game featured a modern day hero climbing a large building in order to rescue a princess from her evil captor. Most levels of the game can be completed in seconds, so you never get bored.
Dracula is a favorite choice for collectors due to its exclusivity to the Intellivision game console. Players are in control of the Prince of Darkness, trying to help him get home before sunrise. During his journey, Dracula encounters werewolves and other deadly creatures.
8. Lock n’ Chase
Lock n’Chase was very similar to Pacman. Players had to enter a maze and collect all the money bags while avoiding ghosts, policemen, and obstacles. The action never stops.
