C > COLECO  > Gemini     


The Coleco Gemini, not to be confused with the Telstar Gemini system released by the same manufacturer in 1978, is a clone of the Atari VCS 2600.

It offers the exact same functionalities as the Atari system. Six switches : color/b&w display, on/off, left player difficulty A/B, right player difficulty A/B, Game Select and Reset.

Apart from the plastic case, only the controllers differ from the original system. Coleco put a joytsick AND a paddle on the same controller.

The Gemini was also sold for a short time (through mail-order club initially) by Columbia House as the Columbia House Home Arcade

This wasa my introduction into video games. I enjoy playing the atari games having 12 titles, alot for some one in Barbados. The isssues i had was the joysticks were not the feel of the atari. SO we brough the original controllers. We then brough froma friend in 1986 the collecovision and had the 2600 ADAPTOR. The expansion unit disable the z80 cpu and use the vido port of the coleco, that is why it was easy for Coleco to build a clone. the clone was also very easy to repear.
