Despite the fact that not all these titles were originally released by Elite, this is a fine selection of some of last year's biggest hits.

Paperboy is the chart-topping coin-op conversion in which you avoid obstacles while bicycling along your delivery route. Dragon's Lair and Escape From Singe's Castle both make a fair attempt to reproduce the thrills of the laser-disc coin-ops, while Ghosts and Goblins is the classic fight-the-ghoulies, leap-over-the-chasms game.

Enduro Racer is Activision's graphically impressive motorbike race, like the others a coin-op conversion.

The turkey is Domark's The Living Daylights, based on the James Bond film and featuring all the playability of a soggy Weetabix. Why this one's on here is anyone's guess, since it's not by Elite, it wasn't much of a hit and it isn't a coin-op conversion.

Otherwise, a worthwhile compilation.

Excellent selection of blasts from the past with one obligatory stinker.
