So I got an Intellivision for Christmas (the original model), and I wondered what games are a must own for it? I have the Flashback, so I was going to focus on titles that weren't on the Flashback first. Burgertime is probably the game I wanted to get the most, and I also have a copy of Tron Deadly Discs (with no overlays sadly), but other than that I'm not sure what to pick up first? I was also thinking about The Dreadnaught Factor, Microsurgeon, and Lock N Chase? Any other suggestions are appreciated!

Congrats on getting a new system to collect for.  INTV is great and a lot of fun.

Space Battle is my favorite. 

 

Demon Attack (all Imagic games belong here)

Burgertime, as you mentioned.

Any Atarisoft game (Pac Man especially)

Shark! Shark!

Lock N Chase

Night Stalker

 

(PS - I have Microsurgeon and Beauty & The Beast for trade)

Bit of a flawed gem, but Dracula might be worth a look?.

Astrosmash, Star Strike, Advanced Dungeons&Dragons (both of them), Tower of Doom,  Thunder Castle, Utopia (if you have a 2nd player),  Venture and Ladybug are both nice ports.

Worm Whomper is also excellent, but maybe a bit pricey.

If you can find it don't over look Beauty and the Beast.  That was one of my favorites on the system.  All the others I can think of, other than Snafu, have already been mentioned.  Congrats on getting a new system!  I have some INTV games I have no use for...PM me if interested.

Everyone already spoke of any title I would have but figure I would say congrats on your new journey.

Thanks for all the recommendations guys! I went to one of my favorite local retro shops and dropped about 30 bucks today on a bunch of loose carts:

 

Demon Attack

Atlantis

Beauty and the Beast

Locomotion

AD&D (Cloudy Mountain)

AD&D Treasure of Tarmin

Vectron

Locomotion

Night Stalker

Burgertime

Ladybug

Lock N Chase

Mission X

Bump N Jump

 

Treasure of Tarmin and Burgertime were both about 6 bucks, and Beauty and the Beast was 5 bucks, Demon Attack was 2, Atlantis was 3, and the rest were all a buck a piece! I'm going to post pics of my collection as it stands now in another thread.

My Brother In Law has Dracula and its always a must play when we fire up his Intellivision. The game is hilarious!

You may want to just print out a copy of the overlay for Tarmin.   I've played that one for hours and hours and I still have to look at my overlay sometimes.   You got a nice lot for your buck man, congrats and enjoy!

Ladybug for a buck was a steal, that one is 15ish usually.

Hello!

I recommend D2K from Electronite. Ok, it is a homebrew and it could be difficult to get a copy, but it is worth the try.

Beauty and the Beast is also a funny platformer

 

Nightstalker is a brilliant shooter. Demon Attack is a worthy challenger to Atari's Phoenix.

 

Q*Bert is also a nice game on the Intellivision.

 

Take a look at the AD&D Games. They are impressive for the time they were produced.

Kind of.  You shoot robots and bats, with the added strategy of having to reload your gun with bullets after 3 shots.  It's a great game on INTV, especially when you use both controllers at the same time (one to move, one to shoot).

Loving the sound of that.

Hammered Wor on 2600 at the time.

One game that I think is pretty addicting is Locomotion. Certainly one I'd recommend in a snap.  D2K was already mentioned and that is certainly another fantastic game.  If you can get your hands on SuperChef Burgertime, I highly recommend it.  Here is a video of the game so you can see it in action:
