Five Star Games 3

Yet another compilation from BJ, this time with seven games.

On the single tape pack, you get Trap Door, the very playable game featuring all the characters from the TV series. Then there's Uridium Plus, a slightly enhanced version of the original. Next is Tau Ceti, that great skimmer simulation that was the first of the Galcorp games. Exploding Fist makes a welcome return to our screens with the original action game. Firelord is the best ever arcade adventure (well I thought so) with some terrific graphics and sound.

Strike Force Harrier is one of the best combat-cum-flight simulators I've played, and finally Aliens (UK version) controlling a crack team trying to destroy an alien presence.

It's a compilation.

Overall Summary

Another jolly excellent offering from the Jolly stable with seven titles.
