What is it?

This system offered really amazing graphics compared to it's competitors in the early 1980s. The Donkey Kong cartridge included with every system was probably responsible for as many sales as all the other games put together. In my opinion, this system suffered as well from poor controllers like the Intellivison.

What do you have in your collection?

I've got 4 Colecovision consoles, and also have the Driving Controller for playing Turbo. Additionally, I have the big Super-joystick (what's it called?) with 4 trigger buttons and the joystick on top.

I have around 20 unique cartridges for the system - the Smurf game probably being my favourite.

What are you doing with it?

Occasionally I play games on it.
