Atari and Intellivision Ads

This is a very small collection right now but I'll add to it eventually.

Masters of the Universe: The Power of He-Man

Masters of the Universe: The Power of He-Man

I had the Intellivision version of this game. After a few rounds it becomes impossibly difficult.


Advanced Dungeons and Dragons: Cloudy Mountain

Advanced Dungeons and Dragons: Cloudy Mountain

Great vintage 80s artwork here. Speaking of artwork, it's kinda funny now how they use renditions of screen shots rather than actual screen shots (which probably required a lot of effort at the time).


Advanced Dungeons and Dragons: Treasure of Tarmin

Advanced Dungeons and Dragons: Treasure of Tarmin

This is my favorite ad on this page, partially because it's my favorite game on this page too. Treasure of Tarmin is an amazing game for the time and the artwork in this ad fits it perfectly.


Jedi Arena

Jedi Arena

Nice artwork for an otherwise bland video game. Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back for the 2600 was great though, hopefully I'll stumble across an ad for that. I recently gave a copy of Empire Strikes Back away, it would have been a much funnier video if that mystery game turned out to be Jedi Arena.


TRON

TRON

Nice color scheme on this one, I wonder when crazy neon colors will come back into style. The Intellivision version of TRON Deadly Discs was one of my favorites, haven't tried the 2600 one yet.


Lock n Chase

Lock 'n' Chase

Among the many Pacman knock-offs, Lock 'n' Chase was one of the best.


Frogger II

Frogger II

I don't really recall seeing this ad when it was new but it's a nice one.


Mario Bros.

Mario Bros.

How weird is it to see "Atari presents Mario Bros."?


Moon Patrol

Moon Patrol

Finally, after years of wondering I now know the storyline for Moon Patrol.
