A list of Intellivision games that were mostly completed but not released. Keyboard Component software on cassette tape are also included. Technical demos, store demos, and test cartridges are not included. Air Strike is one game that can be considered unfinished but is included in this list because the found prototype is a playable game. Hypnotic Lights is excluded because it is mostly a technical demo. Grid Shock is excluded due to lack of game play. Some were not released due to marketing decisions, others were due to Mattel Electronics shutting down in January 1984. Unless otherwise noted the reference source is the list of Unreleased Intellivision Games at IntellivisionLives.com.
In a 2014 interview, APh programmer Tom Loughry explains that in 1982 he and another APh programmer started a third Advanced Dungeons & Dragons game which was abandoned when he left the company. He also worked on a Keyboard Component cassette game Super Football whose completion status is unknown. In a 2015 interview with Russ Haft, manager of the Intellivision programming group at Atari, it is explained that in addition to the four games released versions of Joust, Jungle Hunt, Pole Position, and Missile Command were completed or close to completion. Missile Command would have been dropped because of poor playability. A June 1983 press release from CBS Electronics announces Wizard of War and Gorf to be released in July and Blueprint, Solar Fox, and Omega Race cartridges for August. This suggests Wizard of War and Gorf were completed and programming on the others were at least started. Other announced games such as Imagic Wing War and Moonsweeper have little information about their status.
