Taking its lead from the record biz, Beau Jolly has been doing the Now That's What I Call Software game for some time. While not actually producing any software, they are adept at blagging other companies to let them produce compilations on their behalf. And so Supreme Challenge contains Elite, Tetris, Starglider, Sentinel, and ACE 2, a very strong line-up indeed. If this doesn't qualify as the best games for the least money, then my nose is a carrot. Getting hold of just Elite and Starglider 8-bit versions would be a major coup in itself, but top that off with the maddeningly addictive Tetris, the incredible flight/combat sim ACE 2, and the mind-bending Sentinel, this is a world-beating compilation. Anyone who doesn't agree with this must be dead from the joystick up. If you don't buy any other 8-bit games this yuletide, buy this collection. Sentinel is pretty odd, but it has to be the most original game of the last year. With its unique 3D perspective and surreal landscapes, it rates with me as best game of this compilation. (Hey, that means it's the best game on the best compilation! Ohh.)
