Yet another blistering collection of high speed blasts for your perusal.


If you like your action on the tough side, then you could do far worse than pick up a copy of this superb compilation. Featuring five winners in their own right, this should keep you busy well into the small hours.

Kicking off the action is the high speed aqua-blast Hydra. Taking on the role of the futuristic, turbocharged courier, you must carry important documents across the waterways of the western American Coast. Sounds easy, but the terrorists out there are certainly not going to let you get through without a fight.

All in all, there are 31 brilliant levels, each containing nine dangerous missions. You will be briefed, but nothing will prepare you for the brutal world you are about to enter.

Next up is the superb Escape From The Planet Of The Robot Monsters, which sees you and a friend kicking butt to save the lovely ladies from a fate worse than death in space. Great graphics and absorbing gameplay make this one a must for shootie fans, as you race against time to destroy the robots and rescue the damsels. A real winner when it came out in its own right, this blast has lost none of its freshness and is still every bit as fun as it was the first time around. Remember, falling off the ledges could cost you valuable time, so keep on your feet, watch out for the host of different adversaries on each level and destroy the computer equipment as you go to earn bonus points.

Skull And Crossbones was another winner when it hit the streets last year. Well, it's every bit as good on the collection, as you battle it out against the evil sorceror's henchmen, in a desperate bid to get back your bootie. As a one player game it's great but, as a two player game, Skull And Crossbones really brings out the worst in you, as you fight it out amongst yourselves for the gold.

Epic action and more than enough bad guys to keep you busy for hours. Be warned, as you approach the sorceror's lair, things get decidedly hot under the collar, so make sure you're holding your sword in the right direction and get swiping for glory. After all, all your life's savings are at stake here! If speed is more to your liking, then you'd better climb aboard your souped-up motor and get gunning in Badlands. You'll have to be good to survive this outing against the odds, so prepare yourselfand race hell for leather in this superb outing. Last up on this superb set of games is the futuristic Stun Runner blast. Get underground and climb aboard as you race against time to pick up the green stars. It's all about completing the tunnel networks here, in this crazy cult sport of the future.

A brilliant selection of original Tengen/Domark blasts which are guaranteed to provide hours of fun, even if you have got a couple of the titles already. If you know what's good for you, you won't miss out on this lot when it hits the streets.
