They've done it again! Slipped the oh-so-far too hard, HARD DRIVING into a compilation (see WHEELS OF FIRE for comments), in the hope that no-one will notice it among the better titles!

All this lot are taken from Domark's coin-op conversion label Tengen, and whilst not world-beaters there are some goodies in there. APB is a whacky cops-and-robbers car chase game with basic top-down graphics which is pretty entertaining. TOOBIN' is a water-sports romp which also has a fair dose of humour. DRAGON SPIRIT is a good vertically-scrolling shoot-'em-up in which the traditional fighter planes or flying saucers are replaced by dragons, demons and aerial monsters. Best of the lot is ZYBOTS, a sort of 3-D version of Berserk, where two players simultaneously explore a robot-infested maze viewed from their separate perspectives. If you don't have Zybots, Dragon Spirit, or APB then TNT is well worth considering - otherwise, give it some thought before you buy.
