We are planning our return to physical cartridge releases next year (ūü§ěūüŹĽ). This chart shows development progress for our current Arcade Series lineup that should be part of our planned releases for the ColecoVision with the SGM. The first 5 games (as listed) should be fully playable by the end of 2022.

Equipped with 20 years of experience, the best tools, the most advanced drivers, and the Super Game Module, we strive for the most authentic arcade experience on the ColecoVision, bar none.

Currently working on... SGM2/OMNI, many SGM2/OMNI games
Please visit my ColecoVision website: Opcode Games

I'm thrilled with your announcement and I was also happy to see your invitation to visit your website. Alas, I clicked the link only to discover that your website is still inoperative. It would seem a properly set up POS (Point Of Sale) website would only enhance your business whether it be marketing, acquiring an accurate client database, an efficient ordering system, information sharing, customer service, etc. Social Media sites will provide some but not all of these benefits.

For all of us I wish you continued success and personally hope to see your website soon.

Why Popeye?  The original version is excellent and there's no missing levels as far as I know.  I get why you did DK. There's a missing level on the original but I just think time would be better spent doing an arcade conversion that's not as good as Popeye or has not yet been done for the CV.  Actually, same with Ladybug.  The original is excellent.  Ok, so you can maybe get them more arcade perfect but if people want arcade perfection, they can do MAME.  I guess you will find a market for these but as these physical releases are so expensive, personally I look for something on my CV that's more of a different experience to games I already own.  Such as Moon Cresta.  DEFINITELY getting that one.

Well, if just having all stages is your idea of "excellent", wait and see... :P

Cannot wait to see Popeye!!!!  If what you have done recently with other arcade titles is any indication, this will be VERY arcade authentic!!!

So it is 2023. Where are they?

We should start having some physical games in May. A much larger shipment is expected in October. That is the reality of ship shortage.

Sorry, but a Popeye remake for CV would be fantastic. While the original 1983 Parker Bros. CV Popeye port was very good for its time,  graphically it could use a modern makeover especially Popeye himself (who was just as tall as Brutus and looked more like a ghost than Popeye).

Actually I was going to do this.
After I disassembled the old Time Pilot Rom I was going to add the missing stuff and update a few things but glad to see someone else is working on it.

After my DOS project I can always add the missing Venture treasures or Cosmic Avenger which is really lacking.
Personally I would completely redo Cosmic Avenger but that is just me.
