Coleco just announced its live Kickstarter for new Coleco Evolved Mini Arcade games (Rainbow Brite looks surprisingly good) https://www.kickstar...ed-mini-arcades

These look real cool but DAMN it is bugging me that these old retro companies, I know they have very little to nothing to do with the original and are mostly just acquired brands / IP's but the fact they keep trying to use crowd funding just screams red flag to me.

I think it is a cool idea but not for me!!! Maybe an original but not a new game labeled like the old ones!

They look cool but the two titles on offer don't really speak to me. I might have picked up arcade perfect versions of the titles in the original line.

Agreed. I have zero interest in those games & I'm not really keen on financially supporting the current owners of the Coleco name.

Plus, we have a vintage Ms. Pac Man machine modded with Raspberry Pi.  :spot:

I feel nobody asked for or wanted the titles on offer. They should have taken a poll or something offering titles unique to Colecovision or perhaps titles the original coleco had planned but never released. I have no doubt there are very specific reasons they are offering Robo-tech GBA port and Strawberry Shortcake 8bit title but nothing besides the mini cabinets says "COLECO" to me. Just comes off as another cash on marketed to the retro collector crowd because "NOSTALGIA" with zero understanding of what made the originals so cool. To that end I am mostly in agreement with THIS video.

Honestly, there are five or six mini arcades by My Arcade that just landed at our Walmart I would rather spend my money on collecting. Burger time, Pac-Man, Dig Dug, Bad Dudes, Galata, and one more that sound far more interesting to me than these. I'll pass.

A parody made by a friend but honestly I think these might have been more interesting!  :rofl:
