    Caverns of Minos is a highly playable, funny take on Lunar Lander and chopper rescue games from the past. The brilliant, and unique controls paired with a visual flurry of sensations the game is hard to stop playing. Get Caverns of Minos, dim the lights, put headphones on and go crazy.

    Llamasoft and in particular Jeff Minter once again manages to densely pack an arcade game with concepts inspired from classic titles as well as Minter's clear auteur style; it's a shooter that both attracts and repels you, making it almost the Vegemite of gaming.

    This might be the best game in the Minotaur Project yet – its blending of various game types feels original, yet still so very retro. Check this one out.

    The eccentric Jeff Minter presents a clever retro shooter than blends together the best elements of various Atari classics. But his eccentricity can prove too much, often droning out the best bits with his baaaarmy sense of humour.

    Jeff Minter returns with one of his most surreal retro tributes so far, but if you can keep your sanity it's also one of his best.
