Here's more from the official press release:
"Where else can you find this many great games in one package?" asked Mark Cottam, president at MacPlay. "Activision Anthology: Remix Edition is an incredible value with over 75 great games and a cool '80s music sound track."The Activision Anothology Remix Edition will have a suggested retail price of $29.99 and will be available in time for the holidays.
"Activision Anthology: Remix Edition provides fans with an unprecedented retro gaming experience on the Macintosh," said David Anderson, director of business development and licensing for Activision. "By combining the best of '80s gaming and music, with current technology, gamers now have the best of the era.
Activision Anthology: Remix Edition lets players revisit old favorites Barnstorming, Chopper Command, Freeway®, Mega Mania and more. Fans can play all of the games in classic mode or, for an added challenge, they can be played in 15 different unlockable wild and wacky enhanced gameplay modes. Classic mode lets fans play the original way with all of the sound effects and action they remember. Enhanced gameplay modes include Ricochet mode, in which the game screen bounces around the television screen, Cube mode, where the game appears on each face of a rotating cube, and Whirl mode where the screen slowly spins 360 degrees around the middle of the TV screen during gameplay. In addition, instead of a typical flat-screen shell, the menu functions of the game are brought to life in the setting of a teenager's bedroom from the '80s. To play a game, fans need to select a title from the cartridge rack and place it into the game system. To change the music and sound volumes, players must select the radio and adjust the settings from there.
To help make the trip back to the '80s complete, Activision Anthology: Remix Edition includes original hits, licensed by MacPlay specifically for the Macintosh, from the era's hottest artists including Fresh Prince, Flock of Seagulls, Alan Parsons Project, Billy Ocean and many more.
