Steel Machine
Micro Machines
Namco Arcade Classics
The Apprentice
Tetris
Lemmings
Atlantis: The Last Resort
Mutant Rampage Bodyslam
Chaos Control
Dimo's Quest

Philips CD-i Must Have Games

I have a few games for mine. Got them really cheap when I worked for Granada many years ago.

Not to sure what I have and what's the top games. I enjoyed Mad Dog McCree and 7th Guest. But I suppose they were the most common games on the system.

That must be one of the few games I don't have, I will need to look out for it.

I made the mistake years ago of selling the system and games. Now I look at the prices
and think yep I will never own one again.

I was not aware the prices had really increased?

I North America they have, in Europe where the CD-i is much more common prices have stayed low compared to a lot of other systems.

So the trick is to sell to the US.

Yep. I had some spares when I was collecting and sold them all to people in the US.

The one I had was purchased new for $60.00 but they were on the way out. Wish I could remember the model
number. It came with the game pad so it must have been a later unit.

Yep and I remembered it seemed to have a pop hatch. Seems I never get the fancy ones. My Sega CD is the second
model and my 3DO is the FZ-10.
