Screen Shots

Utopia is one of those games that defines Intellivision. The gentle shhhuuusshhh of the rain on your crops. The gonnngg of your fishing fleet feeding the folk. Sim City / Civilization aren't really too much of a stretch from this game! We found the eggs in this game long before the web offered easy pickings for such things. (You know, sailing around the edge of the screen...) This game just rocks as a head-to-head strategy game. Even as a one-player game!
