Oooh, it's another one of those "theme" compilations! Both games are shoot-'em-ups, both are by Storm, and, um, neither features trees. (Except St Dragon. Ed)

Fabby two-player vertical scroller featuring the helicopter/jeep double act from Silkworm, with trillions of different baddies (including visible bullets). Hurrah! The gameplay is spot on, if a tad tough (especially when you're playing as the jeep). Overall, the most enjoyable shoot-'em-up since Moon Strike, and one to come back to. (If you can ever drag yourself away that is).

It's R-Type with pointy teeth a you play a metal reptile that can coil its tail around its head (a great party trick that also shields you from the baddies). And what baddies! Positively legions of colour minions lurk in the scenery, ably surrounded by hulking cyborg supervillains. It's all extremely swish, and the frantic wibbling to put your tail betwee you and the nsties boosts the playability immensely. A tricky game, but one that never drags.

A simply spiffy compilation - Megagames, congrats and choccy biccies all round. I've only one question - who's Max?
