Well, we all know that Nintendo would never let that happen, so it's not that surprising really.

Amazing list!

That is such a great list - so many rarities, homebrews, and rarely-seen classic arcade games. This one is a must buy for every retro gamer! Thanks for sharing!!!

Impressive Compilation

Looking forward to getting this, however I can't quite wrap my head around some of the omitted games. In particular there are two Universal titles (Space Panic, Cosmic Avenger), yet it lacks Mr. Do and Lady Bug. Could just be a case of they couldn't afford to include everything, but those seem odd to exclude. That said, I don't know what I'd be willing to swap out. Thanks for posting the list.

The licensing is far more complicated than it should be, sadly.

And what about Mousetrap??

From a business perspective,

From a business perspective, you want to leave some out there for the possibility of subsequent releases, assuming this one is successful.

War Room

Did they change "War Games" to War Room for licensing purposes? I really wish Frontline was on there... *sigh*

And I hope these controllers are more durable than the old Colecovision controllers (I still have my old Coleco)

War Room and War Games are different

No, War Room is its own game from Probe 2000 (Magnavox). It's a similar theme, but plays quite differently (it has a bit more depth). It's actually quite good.

These controllers mimic the originals in just about every way, but should be a bit more durable. I should have a review unit soon.

Original Coleco Controllers

Hello.

Actually those original Coleco controllers were very rugged. There basically easy to fix, and it's usually either a left or right switch or the joystick portion. eBay has tons of them for parts to fix/or build working ones from parts.

Yeah I'll miss the Nintendo games for sure, but I got 'em for Coleco/ADAM.
