Classix 1

Yep, it's another compilation with exactly the same name as all the others. (I didn't know there were so many ways to spell classics). I'm sorry Ed, but I'm just not in the mood. I've just had an unhappy love affair, my cat just died and I've just got my finger trapped in the hudojnewx. sorry typewriter. What, oh yeah, the review.

Five games, all re-releases. The pick of the crop, is Bobby Bearing. It was the lest of the Marble Madness derivatives end it's a well-wicked game. The other four unfortunately aren't up to the same standard. Brian Bloodaxe is a bit like Dynamite Dan only a good deal less playable platform game. Starbike is too similar to Lunar Jetman (which I hated). Psytraxx is big and boring and That's The Spirit is rather run-of-the-mill icon-driven adventure.

Result: one very decent game and four passable ones.

Overall Summary

Not as spectacular as some of the more recent compilations but Bobby Bearing is a very good game.
