By Nobuo Kogawa
Bring the sights and sounds your Windows XP powered computer is capable of to life! With 100 of the best demo's, freeware and shareware painstakingly arranged for this amazing collection, you'll never get tired of playing these intense games. Global Star Software has pulled all the punches to bring you an intense collection of awe inspiring entertainment value that you can access simply and quickly. With an easy to use installation menu, this jam packed CD will turn your home computer in to the entertainment center it was meant to be.
Global Star Software grants 100 Great Games for Windows XP a second lease on life with this re-release of a collection featuring action, board, card, casino, puzzle, sports, and strategy games. Playable on Windows 98 as well as Windows XP, the compilation includes "demoware" and "trialware" versions of many titles, making it incumbent on the user to send additional payment to the game developers for technical support, printed manuals, or bonus material for continued use.
The strength of the collection lies in the diversity of titles and genres, such as arcade entries Invasion of the Weird Chicken Like Thinga Ma Bobbers and Haunted House Pinball, traditional titles like Moraffs 3D Jongg and Classic Mahjongg, and action games including Jet-Boat 2 Superchamp and Go Karts. Games are installed separately, in most cases giving the user the option to play from the CD or load the title directly onto the hard drive.
