Summer? Hah! As the rain courses dismally down the windows of Rathbone Castle, it's hard to get too excited about anything that claims any connection with 'summer'. Still, this isn't a bad collection, even if you get the feeling that US Gold's really dredging up oldies that aren't so much goldies as mouldies. Bruce Lee (May '85) was one of the very first beat'em ups - fortunately things have come along a little since then. Dambusters (Sept '85) and Beach-Head II (Fe '86) haven't aged too gracefully either, but Impossible Mission (Dec '85') remains the classically addictive platformer it always was. More recently there's Adventuresoft's first game, Rebel Planet, which the troll supremo gave a guarded weclome to, back in Sept '86. 10th Frame (April '87) is the newest of the six, a bowling sim with the same pedigree (and control system) as Leaderboard, but without quite the same addictive qualities. A fair compilation, but nowt to write home about.
