the best colecovision games ...

... obsessed  with colecovision since seeing it at a "state of the art" video game expo at long island's nassau colliseum just before its release ...

only had a few games, but they were THE games:

-donkey kong
-venture
-war games
-tuttenkamen
-pepper II
-zaxxon
-turbo w/wheel & pedal

BTW- spent a fortune on super action baseball with those giant useless controllers- what a total waste of money- game was a piece of junk !!

any other quality games ??

My fav vintage system:

Antartic Adventrue
Choplifter
DK
DK JR
Frenzy!
Gorf (best port IMO)
Jungle Hunt
River Raid - So much better than Atari
Space Fury
Spy Hunter
Zaxxon

Such great ports, such great everything. I don't even get a cramp using the controller.

CV had some amazing games. my favorites (in no particular order)

jumpman jr.
miner 2049er
arctic adventure
popeye
q*bert
war games
tutankham
venture
zaxxon
gateway to apshai
montezuma's revenge

gateway to apshai and montezuma's revenge were rated a D by VGC, but i really enjoyed playing both. i thought gateway to apshai filled the RPG void for the CV nicely, and montezuma's revenge was a pretty complex platformer.

there are some other great games for the CV, but i haven't played them much, and as flavor flave once sang "you gotta go wit' what ya know".

zaxxon was IT

so was turbo w/the steering wheel- i spent a month's worth of newspaper route money to buy that one- worth every penny
