Yes, that is the story of the 2600-versions. But the 7800-titles weren't produced by Coleco. They were made by Atari Corporation. I think, that's another breathtaking story on atari.io.

@BTB: Now i have seen the new episode. Great stuff and your guests are very congenial.

Btw. Are you a fan of Gary Numan? Your avatar follows the pleasure principle.

Before the Nintendo NES lockdown - Oh yeah!!  My first Nintendo game was Donkey Kong on Intellivision... even as a little kid I knew something was not quite right with that port. But it was all I had and I played it for years, thats what we did.

I never did like the Intellivision port too much honestly!!!! Maybe it was the controller?

Entertaining as always. I'll have to make a drive out to Pixel Vault and check them out.

 

When you look at the 2600, 5200, A8 and NES ports of Mario Bros., the player sprites are much larger compared to the squat 7800 sprites. As the 7800 version of Mario Bros. came out much later than Super Mario Bros. on NES, I've always wondered if the player sprites on the 7800 port were modeled on the "small" Mario in SMS. Any thoughts?
