Game Empire

Type of Program: CD Game Collection
Supported Platforms: Dos
Company Name: Softkey
Version: N/A
Price: $9.99-$12.99
Installed Size: Varies

The Game Empire is a vast collection of over 250 Shareware and Freeware games. The library contains some of the all time classics like Duke Nukem 1 and 2, Bladestone, Hugo House of Horrors I, II, and III, Commander Keen, Ken's Labyrinth, and Chopper Commando. While the graphics and sound could be better, it is not really needed on these original classic shareware hits.

The collection comes with an easy to use menu system that will allow you to run and install games, and view the read me files for most of them. While this collection is of classic hits, a lot of the games are useless 80's games that may not even run on a Pentium system. Personally I loved this collection, but I think that Softkey needs to create a game empire that is for friendly for today's Windows 9.x and Pentium users.

I do recommend this collection, but you may not be able to run some of the games on a fast pentium system.
