When developing the first Taito Legends game, developers Empire conveniently left over enough wacky arcade games to fill up this gushing sequel - and there are some truly bizarre titles on offer. Our favourites include the 1995 Space Invaders update in which you can play as some kind of mysterious blue turd; Growl, which asks you to protect animals by roundly kicking lady poachers; and Football Champ, a footy game with a list of controls reading 'shoot', 'pass' and 'punch'.
Elevator Action Returns is another excellent translation - lifts have never been so absorbing or exciting and we love it. Unfortunately, Taito Legends 2 raises a financial dilemma; undoubtedly you're getting a good dose of entertainment with the likes of Space Invaders and Puzzle Bobble 2 in the wings, but are a handful of 20-year-old games really worth Taito Legends' $20 asking price? If you're partial to a spot of footballer-beating, then the answer is a resounding yes.
