Galaxy of Games series

Group Description

The Galaxy of Games series was sold by RomTech, Inc. later renamed as eGames, Inc. in US chain stores (Best Buy, Target, K-mart etc.) where it was very successful.

In Europe the company Greenstreet Software Ltd. acquired the rights to market the games following their acquisition of eGames European division in 2001.

The Galaxy of Games titles typically consist of 'Family Friendly' casual games with colourful graphics that were accessed via a custom game browser. Another feature of these compilations is that the same game may appear in multiple products, for example the game Geo Jump appears in Galaxy Of Games: Silver Edition, Galaxy Of Games: Kids Pack, Galaxy of Games: Blue Edition and Galaxy of Games.

Many of the games in these compilations were tagged as SE an abbreviation for 'Special Edition', 'Shareware Edition' or 'Standard Edition', the wording varied from game to game, meaning it had fewer levels than the full retail game.
