Five Star Games 2

A really spanking collection, every game a megagame.

Dandy was Electric Dreams' quick-off-the-mark attack on the Gauntlet craze and, although it hasn't quite the appeal of some of the later variants, it's still a highly skilled shoot-'em-up with excellent graphics.

Cauldron II was a platformer with an original slant - still one of Palace's very best. Quazatron was another Hewson winner - Marble Madness mixed with Paradroid, if you get my drift.

And with Alien Highway, Vortex's superfast reworking of Highway Encounter, and Piranha's Strike Force Cobra, a very complex 3D combat game that kept Phil glued to his screen last autumn, it all adds up to a compilation of the highest calibre. Get It!
