Gotta play 'em all!
Casual gamers should rejoice with this old-school collection of mini-games, as it offers a wide range of pick up and play experiences that are perfect for messing around with in your tea break. There's nothing staggeringly brilliant on offer here but the sheer range of the games and the fact that many of them are pretty fun in small doses makes this a good package to have on your desktop. The pack starts out with Hula Girl, a slick vertically scrolling platformer where you collect cupcakes and ice cream, while avoiding frogs and broccoli. The next one is Fish Schtick, a puzzle word game, while Roof Rats is a Tetris-style color-based puzzler and Solitaire is a straightforward take on the classic card game. Roger Dodger is a fun little escape 'em up, Zapper is a trivia game, and Mowin' Maniac is a straight copy of Pac Man. Bad Dog 911 is another word game and Toaster Run is an enjoyable isometric adventure, and the whole package is rounded off with Foggy Boxes and Mooshu, the first a copy of Dots and the second a version of Mahjongg. As far as value is concerned, you can't go wrong with the set of games. While none of the individual titles is worth the entry fee by itself, when you add them all together, you have a solid collection which should provide a lot of coffee break entertainment. They're all simple enough to learn, with intuitive controls that take about three seconds to master, and while the visuals and audio aren't going to set the world on fire, the gameplay is generally enjoyable enough to keep you playing.
