Intellivision Month continues on episode 124 with ASTROSMASH, which, contrary to what you might think, does NOT include the Hulk in an astronaut suit smashing lunar modules. 

The 1981 Mattel game is like a cross between Asteroids and Space Invaders, taking elements from both – especially the laser blasts. Why would they do this? And what is motivating the laser battery commander (aka you) to act? Not to give anything away, but we think it’s the NEED TO DANCE!

What do we mean by that? Listen to find out!

Here’s the Atari Times article comparing Atari and Intellivison.

Here’s a link to that Venture Beat article about Tommy Tallarico’s plan to bring back Intellivision.
