Fists And Throttles isn't, as you might have thought, a purebred beat-em-up compilation, as the throttles mentioned are those on a car or bike rather than making people gargle by squeezing their necks. This is a really top flight compilation, containing Ikari Warriors, Thundercats, Buggy Boy, Dragon's Lair and Enduro Racer. Four coin-op conversions on this one, 900+ rated in ACE at the time, one of which is an ex-Activision release. Thundercats was also rated highly (931) and rightly so. T'Cats was a superb slice'n'dice game produced by star Elite contractors Roy and Greg at Gargoyle Games, who are well known for their quality gameplays and graphics. Buggy Boy was one of the most original driving games, and unlike so many titles there isn't much to choose between formats, although I suspect the C64 version would win by a nose
