1990s favourites slapped on CDsDetails of the APDL games collection CDs have emerged: Having taken over the 4th Dimension games range from CJE Micros in July 2004, APDL have now compiled three CDs of old flight simulator, racing car and sports themed games.
The games are not 32bit compatible, although have been checked for StrongARM and RISC OS 4 compatibility. The flight sim CD features classics Chocks Away, Interdictor II and friends. The racing games CD includes Stunt Racer 2000 and Saloon Cars Deluxe. The sports games CD features Break 147, Grievous Bodily 'ARM and The Olympics.
The 4th Dimension were a prominent games developing outfit during the Acorn era of the 1990s, until the group departed the scene, leaving behind gems such as Stunt Racer 2000, Cataclysm, Galatic Dan and others. They were also known for their multi-page white-on-black adverts in Acorn User magazine.
