I think that none of the late Colecovision games were released with European artwork. I see them on ebay.com pretty often, but never saw them in Euro style so far. I will compile a list of games that I think were never released with Euro artwork.

It is very difficult to tell if they were sold in Europe in general. But I think that many of the late US releases made it to European stores, more or less officially. If anyone has memories from back then, please post here.

Examples of games are: Brain Strainers, Fortune Builder, Illusions, Monkey Academy, etc.

I have some memories of CBS Colecovision games been sold at the HERTIE warehouse in Munich back in 1986.

These were transparent bagged loose cartridges with a black/red coloured header and german instructions done with a typewriter.

Probably produced in England from TELEGAMES.

I remember:

Tarzan, Dukes of Hazzard, Montezuma´s Revenge...

 

Will send a picture as soon as it shows up on the internet.

Thanks for that info Norman. 1986 is really very late.

Hmm yes, that is another variation. I wonder if those were sold only in Europe or in the US too. I had one of those too, I think it was BC's Quest for Tires, part I or II. Threw it out when I got a boxed version of that game.

And I wonder if there are games that were sold ONLY in that transparent bags, but never in cardboard boxes. But I don't think so. Maybe those are very late games that were still sold in cardboard boxes in the US, but only in those plastic bags in Europe?

There's still a lot of research to do for the Colecovision in Europe! smile
