  1. Two major things wrong here…1.) Coleco did not release this game. CollectorVision which bought the rights to use the name Exidy, released the game. 2.) The Coleco of today has nothing to so with the 80s company that released ColecoVision. It’s another case of a company acquiring the rights to use the name.
