  • Summary: Bought this for the amazing Defender game from the 80's for my young boy (and me!). The CD is not compatible with the XBox360. feel completely ripped off- nothing mentioned in Amazon's advert for this CD. Never again!

  • Summary: this game reminds me of the computer games i used to program into my bbc computer from computer magazines back in the eighties. I wasnt expecting much but this was diabolical. I dont know how it got such good reviews and im glad i only spent a penny on it as it went straight in the bin.

80's heaven!

  • Summary: If like me you remember (vaguely!) the start of the videogame revolution, then this is a collection of games that has a worthy place in your collection. The fond memories of school holidays when you had nothing better to do than while away the hours in the local arcade flood back when you play the likes of Spyhunter, Paperboy and my personal favorite of the collection Gauntlet. (Which I still consider worthy of the value of the whole collection on it's own).

Ok, but main reason purchasing this game is for Nostalgia

Gordon Christopher Anderson "gamesmaster61", amazon.co.uk

  • Summary: It is a very good collection of games, for such a very reasonable price. It includes the very fast and frantic pace of Smash TV. It brings back the golden memories of the charismatic count down from 10 to zero, fumbling in the arcades furiously looking for 10 pence pieces in my pocket so I could continue the game .But now at home you get the added advantage of unlimited credits .The best games on the collection in my opinion are Klax rampart Smash TV root beer tapper.

  • Excerpt: "...supermodels of my lurid dreams: Midway Arcade Treasures. Immediately my drunken eyes glazed over under a pathetic, nostalgic yolk - Paperboy? Robotron? Defender? Gauntlet? Twenty-two, count them, TWENTY - TWO classic 80’s titles from my chequered youth? I hyperventilated all the way through the queue, aching with anticipation. I hadn’t even checked the price, so imagine my orgasmic reaction when the till rang up £14.99 for the lot…. Bonza. TONGUING ...
  • Pros: Nostaligic trip down shoulder pad alley
  • Cons: Some of the content is abysmal

Perfect for a quick gaming fix

  • Summary: Being a 20-something gamer, I jumped at the chance to pick thiscompilation up, and I'm glad I did. Defender, Smash TV, Paperboy, Marble Madness, all bringing back memoriesof pumping 10p pieces into arcade machines or waiting 10 minutes for theSpectrum tapes to load. Nostalgia....at its best. This title is also a chance to play some classics that may have passed youby. Personally, I'd never played Root Beer Tapper...

midway which way?

S. Teasdale "teasdale03", amazon.co.uk

  • Summary: this is a great game if you want to go back in time to the days of classics like gauntlet, paper boy and marble madness, but it lacks something that doesnt go away (except for gauntlet!!!) and it does spoil the games sometimes. when you first get the game it really brings back good memories but it gets boring after a while only on a 1 player. with a friend now thats fun. it gets conversations going and brings people together (awwwwwww!!!) and makes time fly.
