Intellivision Lives! is a compilation of over 60 Intellivision video games, originally produced by Mattel Electronics or INTV Corporation between 1978 and 1990. Using original game code and software emulation, Intellivision Productions released the first edition in 1998 on a Windows and Macintosh hybrid CD-ROM. A sequel, Intellivision Rocks, was released in 2001 that includes third-party games originally published by Activision and Imagic as well as Mattel Electronics Intellivoice and ECS games. Versions of Intellivision Lives! were then released for the PlayStation 2, Xbox, and Nintendo GameCube by Crave Entertainment. In 2010 Virtual Play Games released a Nintendo DS edition.
Some games could not be included due to licensing (e.g. Tron, Lock 'N' Chase, BurgerTime, Loco-Motion, Mission-X, Masters of the Universe, Pac-Man, Dig Dug, Diner, Pole Position, Commando). Others such as Advanced Dungeons & Dragons and Treasure of Tarmin are working prototype versions to avoid trademarked names. Licenses such as Major League Baseball, NFL, NBA, NHL, NASL, PGA, US Ski Team, PBA, the Electric Company were simply dropped from the titles. Also included were games never before released and made available for the very first time such as King of the Mountain, Brickout, and Takeover.
In addition to the games, the Crave Entertainment editions, have several unlockables such as the classic Intellivision commercials. The original Windows/Mac edition is a resource for development history, unfinished prototypes, box art, overlays, instructions, hidden features, programmer biographies, and video interviews.
