Mr. Do!The Game: As an elfin dweller of a magic garden, you must avoid or do away with a bunch of nasty critters who are after you, while gobbling up See the original TV adas much yummy fruit as you can. (Coleco, 1982)

Memories: Probably the highest-profile title of Coleco’s original licensing deal with Universal, Mr. Do! came home in an almost insanely entertaining cartridge for the ColecoVision. The graphics and sound closely mimic those of the arcade game, and control seems fairly smooth to me.

Mr. Do!All in all, an ideal showcase of the ColecoVision’s ability to bring home some of the arcade’s lesser-known gems, and well worth tracking down. Coleco produced a somewhat clunky version of the game for the Atari 2600, and though an Intellivision version 5 quarters!was announced and advertised (complete with some promising screen shots), it was never released. Oddly enough, the license for the sequel game, Mr. Do’s Castle, went to Parker Brothers instead of Coleco.
