Double Dragon II: The Revenge – Billy and Jimmy Lee, the
Double Dragons, are back to avenge the loss of Marian. In their quest
to defeat the evil Shadow Warriors, Billy and Jimmy must complete nine
missions, facing deadly street gangs, ninjas and huge mutant fighters.
Can Billy and Jimmy contend with the enemies placed before them and
ultimately save the world?
Volleyball – Enjoy a game of volleyball as you spike for
a point, slam a perfect serve and make a save that wins the game for
your team. As captain, you’ll lead your team through a fast-paced
warm-up round, and then quickly move into the heat of real volleyball
competition. The first team to 15 points wins the set, and the first
team to win three sets takes the match.
City Connection – After breaking into an exclusive paint
store in New York City, you’re on the run from the cops! Carrying
leaky 10-gallon cans of paint, drive over every mile of New York City
highways before catching a boat to England. From there, you will go on
a tour of the world, avoiding the police and leaking paint everywhere
