No, it died long ago. Never had Colecovision. Isn't that some sort of medical exam?

Kids these days ;-)
My wife and I had an Intellivision II and a few games. PONG was one of them. We'd set it to the highest speed and ROFL because we were so bad at it. I loved the poker/blackjack, and Mouse Trap (I hated the auto racing game....SO lousy) but her big thing was Space Armada. She played that so much she wore out a controller. She got to the 18th level many times.

I still say Mr. Do was one of the top games of all time.

Weird. I've never heard of Mr. Do. We recently found a game DVD for PCs that has all the old Atari games on it. Now my daughter is into those oldies.
