Colecovision Flashback

Miscellaneous Gaming

We've become accustomed to seeing the Atari Flashback series, made by At-Games, but October 2014 saw the release of the Colecovision Flashback console. Like most of this product line, there is no cartridge slot. It's value lies in the ease of setup for playing 60 beloved Coleco games. I purchased mine at Toys R Us which may determine certain exclusive aspects to the distribution of this product.

The mini console is visually reminiscent of the original Colecovision as are the wired controllers which detach allowing substitutes. Each controller has 2 fire-buttons and a slot to allow one of the 4 included overlays to allow easier game play via the keypad.
