Collecting seven early to mid 1980s videogames on one CD, Namco Museum Vol. 1 includes: Pac-Man, the first-ever cute character maze game; Galaga, a Space Invaders-influenced shooter featuring a star fighter versus wave after wave of alien spaceships; Pole Position, the first car racing game where you must qualify before beginning the main race; Bosconian, an Asteroids-like shoot 'em up; Rally-X and New Rally-X, car racing maze games in which you use smoke screens to wipe out other vehicles; and Toy Pop, a game set in a whimsical world of presents and toys.
In addition to playing the games, you can visit the museum. It features many collectible, out-of-print videogame items on display such as a Pac-Man notebook, a Pac-Man towel and a couple of Pac-Man T-shirts. Also on display are various instruction cards, top displays and screen overlays from Pac-Man and the other games in this collection. You'll also find slide shows, trivia and gaming tips in the museum.
Each of the games in this collection is an exact replica of its Arcade counterpart. You can even change the dipswitch settings to control difficulty, number of lives and other options. ~ Brett Alan Weiss, All Game Guide
