Five Star Games 2

Dum de dum de. Dan danna. Dooo doo (Drum roll.) Yes, it's compilation time again and here's your host, Beau Jolly. What a wonderful night we could have if the price is right. One lucky winner could walk away with Alien Highway if they can get the catchphrase, which is of course more of the same with the roving salt cellars. Or, If you can score 101 or more with 6 darts Dandy is yours, yet another Gauntlet variant. Remember, when Bob says Sincerity Sucks, Cauldron II will belong to you, starmaker, and bouncing pumpkins could well provide hours of fun. There's a good chance though that you'll like Quazatron, a mix of Paradroid and Marble Madness, so press your buttons and gamble away. And Strike Force Cobra is a game you'll like if you play your cards right (and also if you like kicking doors, like wot I do!!)

If you have none of the games, this is an essential purchase. If you have some it's good value and if you have all of them why are you reading this!!?

Overall Summary

Good compilation. At least three very good titles and the other two are OK.
