There are three games in this bargain priced and nicely presented box. Easily the best of the three is Dinosaur Detective Agency which has some great graphics and is good fun to play, but ultimately it’s just a standard platform romp that most kids will get bored of fairly quickly. For a kids game it is pretty tough too.
Next best is Bully’s Sporting Darts, a very old game that has had its day, there is just as good, and some better, in the PD nowadays. You know the score? Point the wandering hand at the board and shoot. The only skill required is the ability to contain your frustration. The confusing player/control setup doesn’t help much either.
Last and most definitely the least is Popeye Wrestle Crazy. It is well known that every compilation must have its dud and in this compilation Popeye is sadly it. Awful gameplay, awful graphics and limited control makes for a diabolical game with very little or not educational value.
This compilation stands on DDA as its star which isn’t exactly the bees knees any more and basically that’s the game you are paying £9 for.
