ColecoVision Classics Heading To iOS Via Kickstarter

ColecoVision-iOS-KickstarterSure, just about everything related to retro gaming seems to be reaching out to Kickstarter lately, but without it countless titles from our past would continue to remain dormant. Rantmedia Games, the team behind the rich Vectrex Regeneration application are looking to bring over their expertise to the ColecoVision with your help.

Instead of providing a barebones emulator and a handful of licensed ROM files, Rantmedia Games' prior creations have featured gorgeous virtual shelves from where you pick out the boxed games you want to play, along with details scans of the original artwork and high score tables.

If the presentation of Vectrex Regeneration is anything to go by, we have high hopes for what Rantmedia Games will do to the ColecoVision brand. As of speaking the company has managed to secure the rights to 19 different titles - including the likes of Antarctic Adventure, Jungle Hunt and Zaxxon - and are looking for $250,000 in pledges to make their licensed ColecoVision venture a reality.
