Review by Tom Allen
2 Stars out of 4

This is our first PC review in years. More a novelty and less a game, this product is a bit much to swallow for its price, even at $30.

Basically, you get three mini-games with Atari 7800 game play, plus an 84-page story, "Everything's Eventual," that would do just as well in print. (No interactivity other than turning pages.) Oh, and you also get various desktop backgrounds and screen-savers.

To be honest, there's not much here for a gamer, so this is best for the Tetris and Frogger-playing 40-plus year-old who is merely looking to install a chuckle or two on his or her hard drive. Of course, being a King fan doesn't hurt.

I did enjoy feeding the cows to the piranhas (though I felt guilty), and the bug-splatting was nice and gross, but I found myself wanting to move on in less than a few minutes. Again, this product, while not specifically designed for older audiences, will do best in that demographic.
