A compilation of five Activision and Infocom titles on CD-ROM:
  • Prophecy: The Fall of Trinadon - Prophecy is a role-playing game, where your character has just left the peaceful town of CrissCross to defeat the evil Krellane and his powerful Empire. The residents of the town have survived for years by hiding from the empire but rumors have surfaced that the soldiers of the empire are nearing. You have heard that only the hero of the Prophecy could prevail against the Empire, and you embark on your quest to fulfill that prophecy.
  • Tongue of the Fatman - An eclectic, intriguing fighting game. Choose from different alien races (including Human) with different abilities and fighting styles, purchase weapons and devices, and fight your way through multiple opponents to face the Fatman. Some of the more innovative features include being able to place wagers on the outcome of the fight, and the phenominon of a special move being less powerful the more you use it to balance gameplay.
  • Deathtrack - In the future, races are held across America where the drivers race for money, and their lives. You are the rookie. Welcome to Deathtrack. Starting off the game with a meager sum, you can choose from three cars (either speedy, plenty of firepower or heavily-armored) and begin practicing for your races against the other drivers. Your opponents have all been captured in 16-colour digital photo splendour. Featuring 3D polygonal cars racing against each other, they try their best to remove you from the race, permanently.
  • Circuit's Edge - Play through the science fiction of George Alec Effinger's "When Gravity Fails" series; chip personalities and skills into your brain, take drugs and beat up thugs as you try to solve a murder mystery in the Middle East-meets-New Orleans "Budayeen." Many unusual characters populate this game and there is some adult content - hookers, drugs and sex changes, albeit in chunky EGA. The interface is similar to Crescent Hawk's Inception, and particularly Mines of Titan - all made by Westwood in the late '80s.
  • Mines of Titan - You're a stranded space jockey in a rugged frontier settlement on Saturn's moon, Titan. Your one chance to get off this ice cube is to assemble a team and find... a lost city! This early Westwood title is a turn based RPG set on the surface of Mars. Your characters have attributes and 21 skills that can be raised throughout the game. You gather your party throughout the game. Much of the game is in first person with a small top down map and status line, but combat is all top-down. Combat can be handled directly by the player or left to the AI.
