About This File

The FreeIntv core does a great job of making the Intellivision's unique controls accessible on modern pads. But even with easy access to all the buttons, I'm always wondering "which ones does this game actually use?".

Scans of the overlay sheets, in wildly varying quality, are easy enough to find but I wanted something a little more unified and true-to-life. So I went through 135 original Intellivision releases and made these side-by-side images of the left controller with the overlay and the right controller without (or featuring unique overlays for a couple specific titles).


Sources & Design

  • The image of the Intellivision controller comes from Ricky Romero on Dribbble. I edited it to cover the game overlays somewhat realistically and add some shadowing effects.
  • The overlays themselves come from various sources but were mainly copied from intvfunhouse.com (and by extension, Psycho Stormtrooper and the LaunchBox Games Database).

Very little editing has been done to the overlays to clean them up. Some received a basic sharpening, some blemishes were cleaned up, and the tops of a few were split apart so the titles show more legibly above the frame. These are NOT meant to look 100% exactly like they do when nestled in a real Intellivision controller.


Unique Overlays
Most Intellivision games came with two identical overlays for Player 1 and Player 2, but some ambitious releases used unique designs and functions across multiple overlays. In these cases, images are provided to show each one. These titles include:

  • Mr. BASIC Meets Bits 'n Bytes
  • Melody Blaster
  • Microsurgeon
  • Triple Challenge (Checkers, Chess, Backgammon)
  • USCF Chess
  • World Series Major League Baseball


Games Included
I did not create an image for demo, test, prototype, unreleased, or homebrew titles. Basically this is just  the retail releases and any handmade overlays that Psycho Stormtrooper had contributed in the past. Below is a list of the games with images that I created:
