How Did This Small Leather Company Change the Video Gaming World Forever?!

Zaxxon, Smurfs, Donkey Kong, Mario Bros. (original); Coleco was super rad.

Smurfs was my jam. I remember totally trippin’ out over being able to control a Smurf on the TV screen. Colecovision was lit, hands down. With its “arcade style controllers” and phone pad, the system eventually fell victim to the release of ADAM — Coleco’s crossover home/gaming computer. Think Macintosh meets Commodore 64, but with zero hype.

Enjoy the video!
