Just this week, and in time for the Holidays, a new game was released called "Christmas Carol vs. The Ghost Of Christmas Presents." This and other games released in the past few years, come complete in box, with glossy manuals and even hand-controller overlays, and are every bit as authentic as the ones released by Mattel "back in the day."
The Christmas Carol game made its debut at the Classic Gaming Expo 2012 in Las Vegas this August, and has been praised by even the Blue Sky Rangers themselves.
Other notable releases for the platform are: D2K Arcade, a fantastic rendition of the classic Donkey Kong arcade game; and Minehunter, a very good puzzle game in the style of Minesweeper.

After more than a year in development, a new game for the Intellivision® system has been released. More than a "home-brew" game, Christmas Carol vs. The Ghost Of Christmas Presents is a labor of love, beautifully packaged in a "book" style box, complete with full-color glossy manual and retro-style cartridge shell. It is every bit as authentic as anything released "back in the day."
The game made its debut at the Classic Gaming Expo 2012 in Las Vegas this August, and has been praised by even the Blue Sky Rangers themselves.
Packed with whimsical charm and exciting arcade action, Christmas Carol offers fun for kids and adults alike, and is destined to become an instant classic!"
