Coleco Video Game System Screenshots

This post has the screenshots I promised in this article:

Coleco Video Game System Handheld

To get these screenshots, I used a BR116 composite video capture USB device, which converts Composite Video/Audio into a V4L2 interface over USB, which then can be displayed on my Guix desktop. It allows me to play the handheld from VLC, instead of directly on a monitor, though I have been having trouble with figuring out the audio.

Here is a brief, somewhat choppy video clip capture with Gnome Cheese. There is for some reason a 1kHz tone in the recording — perhaps a reference tone.


These graphics definitely aren't stunning for a 2005 product. But I feel that the chief problem with the product was not the graphics, but rather the non-intuitive controls and game play.
