DescriptionGalaxy of Games: Gold Edition is a compilation of casual and special edition games. It is one in a series of compilations in the Galaxy of Games range that are denoted by a different colour, there are Green, Red, and Silver editions and others.
When the CD is inserted it runs automatically installing a menu system for the compilation and nothing more. When a game is selected for the first time it is installed, later selections from the same menu will then run the game. The menu system also has a link to eGames' web site where more demo games were available, a help section which has information on some games but for most says 'See the in-game Help section', and a Tools section which will install DirectX 7.0
