Well, more like the "what"...

 

I'm trying to just find a list of games that the Blue Sky Rangers worked on. Search engines were no help. Does such a list exist?

Supernatural, perhaps...baloney, perhaps not.

This site might help. http://www.intellivi....com/site.shtml

It has a list of every game programmed and released for the Intellivision, as well as who did the programming.
(So far as I know the Blue Sky Rangers didn't do anymore work after Mattel ended all INTV development, but someone can correct me if I'm wrong.)

The link Lee provided is a good one.  It will consume hours.  There's so much good info there.

From the way I understand it, the Blue Sky Rangers was the name given to all in house programmers at Mattel.

So basically, any game made by Mattel for the Intellivision (Except for the first batch, which was made by APH up until the late INTV Corp releases) or the 2600 under the M Network label was made by the BSRs.

I thought ALL first-party Intellivision games released by Mattel were created by The Blue Sky Rangers. Blue Sky Rangers just = Mattel's dev team. Right?

Yes, they were basically Mattel's in house team, but they didn't have an in house team right away, so APH made some of the earlier games I believe.
