Welcome to the official web site of





  Team Pixelboy is devoted to the release of new ColecoVision games in cartridge format, with quality boxes and manuals, just like you remember purchasing them in retail stores, over 30 years ago! Have a look at the current projects in the sidebar on the left side! If you believe you can help with any of these projects, especially where the "outsourced" projects are concerned, feel free to contact the webmaster of this site!  


Frequently Asked Questions


Why is it called "Team Pixelboy"?
    While I operate this ColecoVision publishing label alone, any homebrewer will tell you that it's hard to do everything all by yourself, and homebrewers/publishers often need the help of others to get the job done. I like to give some importance to this aspect of my work by saying that if you help me with one of my projects, then you are part of my team for that project. And that's what the name "Team Pixelboy" helps to underline.
What's the difference between "personal" and "outsourced" projects?
Why not just do the "outsourced" ports yourself?
    I currently know very little about Z80 assembly programming, and I'm downright allergic to assembly language to begin with. I don't mind doing little routines in assembly (with some assistance from friends with proper expertise), but porting an existing game from another machine to the ColecoVision usually involves several tedious tasks, in addition to requiring advanced technical knowledge of the source machine as well as the ColecoVision itself. The projects I want to do myself can be done in BasicVision or C language, and I as you can see in the "Personal projects" section of the sidebar, I have more than enough of those projects on my list already. Besides, I believe most Z80 experts out there can perform these ports way faster and better than I can.
Do you really only specialize in the ColecoVision?
    Yep. I'm a ColecoVision fanboy, and you won't find any homebrew games for the Atari 2600, Intellivision or any other computer or gaming console on this web site.
Do you publish ColecoVision games made by other homebrewers?
    The only ColecoVision games made by other programmers which I am willing to publish are those currently listed in the "outsourced projects" section of the sidebar on the left. I will not acccept any game submission from other homebrewers, no matter how good the game is. If you created a good ColecoVision game and would like to see it released in cartridge format, you should really contact CollectorVision.
Let's say I'm a ColecoVision homebrewer and I decide to do one of the games listed on your web site, but later decide to release it using some other publishing option than your Team Pixelboy label. Would this bother you a lot?
    Not really. This web site should actually be considered as a checklist of all the games I want to release on the ColecoVision, but it's not a list of projects that I reserve exclusively for myself. If someone else tackles any of those projects and reaches release-candidate status, I'll give this person my two thumbs up, remove the project from this web site, and I will also be the first in line to place my pre-order for the eventual cartridge release. However, there is one exception, namely K.C.'s Mega Maze, because I feel it's my idea, and I consider this game to be a Team Pixelboy exclusive, so to speak. The rest are up for grabs, if any of them are of any real interest to other ColecoVision homebrewers out there.
