Night Stalker on Intellivision Amico
From Intellivision's YouTube site:
Designed originally by Steve Montero and released in 1982 , the original Night Stalker game on Intellivision was one of the most popular and biggest selling games for the original system. So much so that it was ported to other consoles including the Atari 2600 (aka Dark Cavern) as well as the Apple II & IBM PC (1983).

Our Amico Retro Re-imagined version is being done by the incredibly talented and award winning developers at Other Ocean & Digital Eclipse while personally be programmed by retro legend and historian Mike Mika. Aside from single player, you can play with up to 4 players. Including Co-Op (as seen in this video) or Versus modes.

Although Amico's broader appeal will cater to families and casual gamers, we also have games to be enjoyed by more serious gamers who are looking to enjoy the challenges of couch co-op and in person versus modes at a little higher level. Night Stalker is such a game.

Please note: This is only a small unfinished sampling of what the game will ultimately be like. Many more surprises on the way! This was recorded and played directly from the Intellivision Amico system.
