Compilation tapes are usually a load of old tut. You know the sort of thing, a couple of has-been name titles and fifteen DIY Basic programs. Well, I'm pleased to report that War On Want Games can't be described as any of these things. On value for money alone it would be worth it. Fourteen name games, some ex-chart entries. You can't really go wrong for under a tenner, can you? There's a fair bit of arcade action, with Hunchback II, Horace And The Spiders and Rupert And The Ice Castle, not to mention one of Artic's better Chess programs and one or two other lesser known but none the less good strategy games.
    But all of this, good as it is, is secondary to the point of the whole thing, which is to raise money for people who not only don't have a computer, but probably have no food, no clothes and nowhere to live. This factor, contributing to people in need, makes WOW Games the best value of all.
