Over time, subtle changes were made to the packaging used by Mattel (and later INTV Corporation) to deliver Intellivision (and eventually M-Network games). Once Mattel started making the M-Network
games for the Atari VCS (a.k.a. Atari 2600), the cartridge case was modified to have a couple of slots in one end. The M-Network "adaptor" could then be snapped onto the end. The following images
chronicle the evolution of the primary Intellivision cartridge case.
I will not attempt to chronicle here all the various ways, fonts, and locations that the Mattel copyright was put on the cartridges. Suffice to say, there are many.
Note the lack of the "insertion line"
All but the oldest carts have the "insertion line"
Older cases used Philips screws
Later, triangle-headed screws appeared
In late 1982 and in 1983, no screws were used
Finally, the "door" disappeared altogether
