Several games on one cassette sounds like good value for money... until you take into account other factors - like quality.

These three games compilations are sadly lacking in this respect. Written in Basic, they are very slow and lacking in detail. Small children - no older than eight - might enjoy the strange sounds and bright colours, but for anyone older, they're a definite no-no.

All the games on the Innovative Cassettes are available in book form, where they are arranged to teach Basic programming techniques to beginners to computing while entertaining at the same time. Fair enough.

With this in mind, the book is much better value for money than the cassettes.
