Toy Sunday: Intellivision

Remember Intellivision?

A compact, wood-grain cabinet formed the console base, and wired out from that base were a pair of unique controllers.

Instead of the standard joystick/button configuration, the Intellivision’s long and thin controllers were operated with a 16-direction golden disk, four “action keys” and a 12-key numbered keypad. Colorful overlays came with most games, placed over the keypad to show what each button did in that game.
