On this, one of the first 128K + 3 budget completions, you get three games previously released on various Mastertronic labels on one disc for under a tenner. Good value, eh? But what's on the unfloppy? Well, to kick off, you get Bump Set Spike. I didn't like this very much. The graphics are small, sound is a little sparse and the computer is a smidgeon easy to beat. Next, you get Strike. This I didn't think was all that hot at all. It's probably the most unplayable bowling game I've seen and the animation could be a little better. Finally, you get Speed King II. The low point of the disc. I don't remember, and correct me if I'm wrong, but I can't recall Speed King I ever being released on the Spectrum. Still, the sequel's not that good, the tracks are boring and the only speed is this funny little green line that travels down the middle of the road which goes at the same speed when you are going at 60 and when you are at maximum speed. All round, the idea is sound, the pricing good, but can we have some slightly better games next time?

Good value considering the number of games on the disc, but who left out the quality?
