Beauty and the Beast for Intellivision

This is really exciting news as both games were really fun games for the original Intellivision console.  BurgerTime was a port of a hugely successful arcade game and was supposedly the most popular game on the console, so it is no surprise to hear it is going to resurface this time around.  It sounds like a silly game, but it is really a lot of fun! You play as a chef trying to make hamburgers and in the process you must avoid evil hot dogs and pickles.  Beauty and the Beast is a game fairly reminiscent of the original Donkey Kong, but featured a slightly better graphical presentation.  This one is probably slighly less known outside of the Intellivision user base, but I will confirm it is a great title to have included in the revival.

Other news talked about today is that there will be an add-on for the console, possibly from a third party, that will allow users to play the original cartridges. It remains to be seen how popular such a feature would be. On the same note, it has been confirm that at least some of the original library will be loaded onto the console’s hard drive.
