IMG Reviews the Activision Anthology: Remix Edition
12:52 PM | Johan Hansén | Comment on this story

For all fans of the really old games, IMG has now taken a closer look at the Activision Anthology: Remix Edition, a collection featuring the majority of the games that Activision released to the Atari 2600 during the years 1980 to 1988. This collection has now made it to the Mac thanks to MacPlay.

From the Review:

These are simple games. On the one hand, their uncomplicated and formulaic patterns may have you switching from one cart to the next every few minutes. On the other hand, since you now own almost every game Activision put out for the platform, why not do just that? These games are easy to get in to and out of, so enjoy the distraction for as long as it — oops, sorry, got distracted there. The point is, “simple” here does not mean “boring.” The formulas behind each title — avoid the moving obstacle; blast the enemy; leap from platform to platform — are the very basics that keep any video game interesting.
To read the full review, follow the link provided below. You can find the Activision Anthology: Remix Edition at the IMG Store for $29.95, or $24.95 if you're a MacGames CD/DVD Subscriber or IMG Pro member.
