3. Zaxxon - Colecovision
Based on the arcade hit Zaxxon.

To better appreciate the power of the Colecovision compared to other systems at the time, only this version was able to reproduce the faux 3D look of the original arcade. The Intellivison and Atari 2600 ports switched to head-on scrolling with horrible shading that made it very difficult to spot raised platforms.

4. Space Panic - Colecovision
Based on the arcade hit Space Panic.

At a time when horrible ports like Pac-Man for Atari 2600 were being released, this port was hailed to be even better than the original arcade.

24. Antarctic Adventure - Colecovision
An arcade port of Antarctic Adventure by Konami, the MSX and Colecovision were popular, but the original arcade is hard to find and is considered 'very rare' by KLOV website, as there are no records of an arcade cabinet among their collectors' 20,000+ games.

25. Root Beer Tapper - Colecovision
Based on arcade hit Tapper.

The original arcade was about Beer tapping, with Budweiser logo prominently advertised in the game. After strong criticism that they were marketing to minors, arcade developer changed the game to 'Root Beer Tapper'. All home ports are based on the Root Beer version.

The ColecoVision is Coleco Industries' second generation home video game console which was released in August 1982. The ColecoVision offered arcade-quality graphics and gaming style, the ability to play Atari 2600 video games, and the means to expand the system's basic hardware. Released with a catalog of twelve launch titles, with an additional ten games announced for 1982, approximately 125 titles in total were published as ROM cartridges for the system between 1982 and 1984.

Coleco licensed Nintendo's Donkey Kong as the official pack-in cartridge for all ColecoVision consoles, and this version of the game was well received as a near-perfect arcade port, helping to boost the console's popularity.

Descriptions and images were not taken from your website. Only the ROM Emulation download links are. And each game doesnt have an entry, so I couldnt link to your site. But to prevent download leeching without credit, I've updated all DOWNLOAD links to go to your Colecovision ROM page, so your site gets traffic and credit before downloading. Cheers.
