    The Colecovision, SMS, SG-1000, and Genesis all share similar hardware, but some compatibility was dropped with the Genesis's VDP.

    IIRC, the colecovision (and SG-1000) used an older graphics mode that the SMS supports, but was dropped on the Genesis. It's the reason f-16 fighting falcon doesn't work on the Genesis with the power base converter.

    To be honest, I don't know a lot about this hardware in your link, but maybe colecovision games could be run in genesis SMS mode if they had been hacked to use the VDP's mode 4 and had I/O addressed changed around to match the SMS.
