For Volume 3 of their arcade emulator/ROM compilations, Namco greatly streamlined the 'museum' interface to load and react faster than before. The six games included in this one are Ms Pac-Man, Galaxian, Dig Dug (a personal favorite of the current author), Pole Position II, The Tower of Druaga, and Phozon. The first four games need no introduction to Western audiences - Ms Pac-Man and Pole Position II are still in many arcades even today. The Tower of Druaga is an odd type of maze game - almost a mesozoic RPG - laden with secrets and hidden items. (A tip book detailing the less-than-intuitive way you have to get those items is included free in the package.) Phozon is the type of game that might be a Windows desktop toy today; a pattern appears in the middle of the screen and you must catch bouncing 'molecules' to duplicate that pattern. All in all, great fun for young and old alike.
