VH! Classic is bringing back six of the original Intellivision games from 1981. Intellivision for iPad will be launching on April 3rd alongside the iPad and will be delivering the following 6 games:

  • ASTROSMASH - Spin. Blast. And drop into hyperspace to avoid a killer asteroid shower. Power on. Attack computer engaged. Fire a quick burst at the alien antagonists. Got 'em!
  • CHIP SHOP GOLF - Fore! Select an easy or a hard course, or put together your own from a selection of 99 holes, many based on the most famous holes in the world!
  • NIGHT STALKER - You're on the run. Your attackers are relentless robots. Destroy one and it's replaced by an even smarter, faster robot. It's a nightmare.
  • THIN ICE - You control Duncan the penguin. Skate around the other penguins, dunking them in the pond. Avoid or dunk the seal and polar bears. Gobble shrimp cocktails for extra speed.
  • THUNDER CASTLE - Guide your knight through the deadly mazes of Thunder Castle, slaying evil dragons, sorcerers and demons as you go.
  • SKIING - Take a deep breath, dig your poles hard into the snow, push off...and you're speeding down a world class slalom course.

No word on when/if an iPhone version will be arriving, but the iPad version will cost $2.99.

Update: It appears an iPhone version is on the way.

    These games are old but this is a better deal than the xbox 360 game room, where each old game costs $3. This is worth it for chunky old Astrosmash alone in my opinion.

    WOW - I love intellivision. If they came out with the 2 D&D games and frog bog...I would actually buy and Itampon!

    • Adams Immersive

      Advanced D&D (with the yellow mazes that bounced your arrows off of angles) was great! I remember the buggy title screen: “DUNGEADVANCEDAGONS.” And Sea Battle for 2 players was classic. Invisible mines to trap your friends!

      But if I could only have two Intellivision games, it would be Night Stalker first, and Astrosmash second. I spent so much time on those.

      I really need an iPad. (The iPhone version will do for now.)

    Frog Bog ruled. I actually have the PS2 disc with all the games on it. But since my 60gb PS3 crashed I had to get a slim PS3 which no longer plays PS2 games. But this rules. Hopefully their updates will include more games like the D&D ones and some Shark Shark! But Night Stalker rules. And hopefully it has all the original voices and sounds so if an update comes along I can hear B 52 BOOOOOOOOOOMBERRRRRRRRRRR again.

    Oh yeah, and bring on Utopia!!!!!!!

    Damnit, makes me wanna head into my garage and dig out my intellevision. I still got it, and the games, and it still works.

    Awesome! I bought Astrosmash for the Xbox 360 Game Room and also have the PS2 collection Intellivision Lives, but I'll definitely be getting the iPhone versions too. I almost want to buy an iPad now. The 4:3 screen on the iPad will be perfect for classic games like these.

    Would love to see both D&D games as well. I think that fellow meant to say "B-17 Bomber"... also a great game with the Intellivoice module. I loved the old Imagic games for Intellivision like Micro Surgeon and Dracula!

    But just because of this little $3 game with the 6 Intellision games- 3 of which I've never heard of, will now tempt me to go out and buy the iPad.

    Love it! Can't wait. Night stalker was/is one of my faves of all time.

    Bring Sea Battle!! Sea Battle!! Sea Battle!!
    That would be awesome with online multiplayer and touch control.
