dave_e, an authority on collecting games for the European Machines, says:
The Colour Genie is an incredibly rare machine, with only four or so coming up each year for sale on eBay. It has a range of unique games and was fairly well supported in Germany. The low resolution modes and the difficulty of programming it, combined with the all-conquering Sinclair Spectrum of its era, put paid to it achieving any foothold in the UK market. Well worth adding to your collection... if you can find it.
