Mattels first video game system, Intellivision is the first system to use a 16-bit processor. The added power allowed more complex games, making this system very popular, and the first serious competition to Atari.

Intellivision games include a controller keypad overlay which allows dedicated keys to be assigned without software/display overhead.
