Game Players (Sep, 1995)
Back in the '60's, they used to say that certain drugs would cause flashbacks. Well, they were lying, but these videogame flashbacks are a definite blast! Put some heavy metal or some (barf!) disco on the stereo and relive the early days of gaming!
Electric Playground (Nov 20, 1995)
As the inaugural cartridge of the Arcade Classic series, Asteroids/Missile Command, is worthy of your immediate attention. If you find yourself still travelling with that beat up Gameboy of yours, you should definitely find your way to a game store and check this package out. If these two conversions are a sign of things to come, not just from Nintendo's series but from Nostalgic Gaming in general, we're in for some great little timeless treats in the future. I'm glad that the Gameboy is receiving quite a few of these updates (Donkey Kong, Space Invaders, etc.). As a constant reminder of gaming simplicity itself, the portable machine is the most logical place to launch products that suggest we can appreciate the fact that good game play always overcomes fancy technology. It's kind of ironic that Gameboy is stretching its lifespan on the strength of games that quite conceivably could have been long ago forgotten.
GamePro (US) (Aug, 1995)
Most players won't care about the minimalist style of these two classic games. They'll only care about the pure fun and the great value. Two time machines for $30? Now that's entertainment.
Total! (Germany) (Oct, 1995)
Alte Fans, die keinen PC (mit Windows-Arcade) besitzen oder auch unterwegs spielen wollen, müssen bei diesem Kombimodul unbedingt zugreifen. Aber auch die Jüngeren können sich ruhig mal anschauen, was man vor 16 Jahren mit bescheidener Grafik an Spielspaß erreichen konnte.
Mega Fun (Jan, 1996)
Das Modul kann nur beschränkt zum Kauf empfohlen werden, da die spartanische Grafik und das recht einfache Gameplay nur kurzfristig motivieren. Fazit: Nur für Freaks oder Nostalgiker geeignet.
