Owners of this beast may have remembered all of the strange controllers and gadgets that were available. Some included the sports trackball controller among others.   The controller for the colecovision was a chore to use. Not only were there two buttons and a little joystick, there was a complete numerical pad, much like the one on a touch-tone telephone.  What's even better is that certain games had a little number pad overlay for special control options.  For instance, a flying game might have had a landing gear button or a flare button.  Needless to say these often got lost, bent and who knows what else happened to them in the process of playing.  The game featured a decent amount of colors and cool graphics.  There were plenty of games out for the Colecovision. My favorite was Smurf.

My father started me on video games, he had them all from the very 
start.  The Coleco Vision was the last system he purchased, until I got him back into the game with the NES.  If the Video
Game market hadn't crashed back in 84, Coleco Vision would be king still to this day.  Having a Coleco back then, was like
having a Game Cube or PS-2 compared to a Gameboy!!!

My Coleco is in mint condition, other than the controllers.  I found that in most controllers, the contacts for the
joystick become fatigued and fail to operate.  If you know a little about soldering, you can easily replace the contacts,
with cheap parts from your local electronics supply store.  Once you do this, there is no stopping you, you can make your
system last a lifetime.  If your Coleco is in poor shape, a complete dismantaling/cleaning and re-building will make it
work, and last like new.  Cleaning on the catridge contacts is essential on a regular basis, since this system just turned
20 recently.

With a few adaptors, you can hook your Coleco up to any RCA-inputs, and it makes the picture look 100 times better.  I play
mine on a 32inch Sony Wega, and the colors/sound and picture really look great, better than the old arcade machines.  Make
sure to clean the RF connector on the CV deck, before attaching any new cables.

No one in the world could take my Coleco away from me, it combines the very best of video game history, with some of the
fondest memeries ever.  Long live Coleco!

Now my kids play on it. My favorite games are Bump and Jump and Jumoman Junior. Some games 
are very dificult like Bounty Bob. I love the simplicity of the games and the fun to play. Some games 
are however terrible boring. Lot of fun for hours and then the system of the future.

Colecovision was the first and only video game system to date to use completely "off the shelf" technology. 
Coleco did not have any proprietary chipsets that cost big $$$ to design and manufacturer unlike Atari, 
Nintendo, Sega, Sony, etc.

No-one has ever mentioned the Rocky cart for the Coleco. I have got the game and the controllers 
shaped like boxing gloves. Does anyone else have this?

4.Smurfs (you had to move through boards and jump over objects to get to gargamel)
5.Turbo (this came with a steering wheel for better race action)
6.Congo Bongo (jungle game where a monkey throws things at you)
7.Destructor (I don't remember what this was about)
8.Defender (Kill aliens to save humans)
9.Baseball (this game came with two controls)

They also had a steering wheel for race car games and a baseball controller, a controller that had different 
color buttons on it and a roll pad to know what base to throw at.   I will give you more information, I need 
to look at my system.  I will write back soon. Dear webmaster the steering wheel control is called the 
expansion module 2 and it was not for play on the turbo game but on the destructor game sorry 
about the error.  The baseball controllers were called super action controllers they were for 
play with Super Baseball.

I used to have two boxes full of celeco junk.  About 5 controllers, weird hook on gadget (like game genie 
but added to system), and about 30 games including donkey kong, smurfs and a couple of wierd controllers. 
I mean I had everything!!! Who knows maybe I still have it.
My favorite game was Frenzy.  That game kicks 4 bit butt!!!
Do you have any information or facts about this videogame system?
If you do, we would love to here from you.
