YES on ALL! :)

I never had this game when I owned an Intellivision, but then I didn't have a complete collection either. Is the Intellivision Flashback a good value? They are rather pricy now.

@Mark: The flashback was a great idea but in practice it's quite flawed. It only as 60 (61 with special edition) games installed without an option to add to it. It doesn't have a cartridge port which is would have been nice. It only has composite out with one audio channel so the sound and more importantly the picture isn't great. I picked it up for one posterity but two and more importantly the controllers are brilliant and many people buy an adaptor so they can use the flashback controllers with their original Intellivision. The controllers are very sought after and this is the main reason that the flashback sells for such a high price now. If you are thinking of getting a flashback there is always the ultimate flashback upgrade service which replaces the internal components and gives you a hdmi output. I don't have that but a lot of people do. Give it a Google. Thanks for the vote mark :)

@Bamse:

I checked it out and it sounds great, especially with the HDMI output, hombrews added; wifi to add more games, etc. The only thing is it's $149, and you have to ship your Intellivision Flashback to them (which I don't own). It looks like it has upgraded sound too, but having to buy the Flashback, ship it to them (and pay $149 to boot), and it starts to add up to one massive bill. Plus, I'm on a fixed income and I have a family and 4 Youtubers to help support (through Patreon).

@Mark: Yes, it's not a cheap option but then retro gaming is no longer cheap. It's gotten too popular now which has benefits but increases prices. For instance Spiker (volley ball game) on Intellivision now sells for around $1500 CIB :-O
