The Intellivision was my first game system and will always evoke warm memories. The gaming experience back then isn't comparable to today's. Everything felt so new, there was always a sense of wonder about what they could do next. It's the difference between "ooh, ooh, what if they made a game about [x]?" vs. "wow, another Need for Speed sequel". Practically every idea was new during this era.
Pack-in catalogs were a part of the experience, something missing today what with the internets and all. They were a way for companies to promote what else was available for their system. Most of these didn't survive long though, I found this one in a box of games for $5 at a garage sale. As a kid I probably discarded dozens of these without thinking.
I'll admit, these are not the best scans I've ever done. To really get these right you'd have to cut the catalog in two. If I get a second copy of this then I'll hack one up and rescan them. Anywho, all the images here are thumbnails so click to see the full-size image and stuff.
Bowling and Dungeons & Dragons: Alright, on to one of my favorite Intellivision games; heck one of my favorite games for any system. I assume this ad is for "AD&D Cloudy Mountain" although the drawing only distantly resembles it. The description, on the other hand, doesn't remotely match-up to either of the AD&D games produced. I can only assume they had the AD&D license at this point but didn't know what they wanted to do with it. "AD&D Cloudy Mountain" actually began as a different game and was re-branded so perhaps this page is for something with a grander vision that never transpired.
