The Winning Team

Variety abounds in The Winning Team from Domark. The five games offer different gameplay and graphic styles so it's pretty unlikely boredom will come knocking at your door. In the pack are Klax, APB, Escape From The Planet Of The Robot Monsters, Cyberball and Vindicators - all coin-op greats!

Klax is for puzzle wizards. You have to catch tiles as they roll towards you and flip the correct colours into the bins at the bottom of the screen, in true puzzle game style, things are simple to begin with but soon hot up as tiles get faster and more frequent.

One of my favourite games from the arcade has to be All Points Bulletin, or APB to its friends. Full of speeding police cars, miles of roads and donut shops, you just can't help but get addicted. The action's viewed from above and the landscapes scroll by as you drive the squad car, arresting a quota of criminals to succeed. Great fun.

Escape From The Planet Of The Robot Monsters is an absolute corker of a 3D arcade adventure. Playing a one- or two-player game, you have to free the captives and destroy all the robot scum. Nice, eh?

Cyberball is a look into the future of American Football. You may have thought it was a tough game already, but played against giant robots things soon start to hot up even further.

Finally, Vindicators puts you in control of an armoured tank. Battle it out with the enemy for points: a frenzy of shoot-'em-up action.

The Winning Team is a fantastic compilation. Get your hands on five addictive games for only around £3 each. What a complete and utter bargain!
