Exactly what you'd expect...
on 17 December 2001
This collection of games is exactly what it says it is - exact copies of the arcade games Galaga, Galaxian, Ms. Pac-Man, Dig-Dug and Pole Position. I initially thought that the games would suffer from the small screen, but you quickly get used to it and on Ms. Pac-Man you can choose to have a scrolling screen that greatly increases the size of the characters without confusing you too much.
Galaga is the gem for me - still playable after all these years and never bettered in my opinion. It is perfect in every way, with ever changing challenging stages interrupting the intensifying alien attacks. Galaxian however is hopelessly dated now, being nothing more than a jazzed up space invaders-type game, as is Pole Position - if you've played any of the current driving games, or even some of the ones from the early nineties, this game will have very little appeal. Ms. Pac-Man is good for whiling away time on the train, and Dig-dug is as infuriating as I remember.
You will know if you like these games or not, so judge whether it's worth buying on how badly you want to play them again.
My main critcism is the price...
