Arcade’s Greatest Hits - The Atari Collection 1
Midway Presents Arcade’s Greatest Hits: The Atari Collection 1 is a compilation that features six Atari arcade games. Each game has its own sub-set of options that allows players to adjust the difficulty, the number of starting lives, the amount of points required to earn extra lives, etc…
The game followed 1995/6’s Williams Arcade’s Greatest Hits and was followed by many more Arcade’s Greatest Hits compilations, many of which were headlined by Midway.
The games included in The Atari Collection 1 are:
Super Kyuukyoku Harikiri Stadium 2
Super Kyuukyoku Harikiri Stadium 2 (“Super Ultimate Excitement Stadium 2”) is a baseball sim from Now Production and Taito and the second Super Famicom game in their Kyuukyoku Harikiri Stadium series. The game is a little more cartoonish and Arcade-like than its rivals, with everything moving along at a brisk pace.
The game also includes a number of Japanese professional teams. It would be the last game in this series. Like its predecessor, it never saw a release outside of Japan.
Wizardry I-II-III - Story of Llylgamyn
Wizardry I-II-III: Story of Llylgamyn is a compilation of first-person RPGs for the Super Famicom. The compilation includes graphical remasters of Wizardry: Proving Grounds of the Mad Overlord, Wizardry II: The Knight of Diamonds and Wizardry III: Legacy of Llylgamyn, the first three games of Sir-Tech’s WizardryCRPG series. The player can import their winning characters from game to game.
The game originally came with English and Japanese language options, even though the game was never released outside of Japan. The English language option doesn’t translate everything, however, and so a localization patch from the Aeon Genesis translation group was released to translate all the remaining miscellaneous menus. The game itself was only made available through the Nintendo Power cart-writing service.
