So, does this complete my Game.com (pronounced Game-com) review collection??

Does it?  Well the review for the williams games are great.  Not sure about the other ones.  It is great reading about a game system that I am never going to buy.

The 2-D Williams game is "Sinistar", not "Sinistron."

You know you're a Midwesterner when someone admits to playing TIGER Wheel of Fortune...

Wow a collection that runs decently on the GameCom? Wonder if there are any homebrews for the system, if anyone cares enough to make them that is.

Cool, another system getting close to being done. Fun reviews. It's sad WoF is the best game of the bunch, but at least it makes sense.

Lights Out actually looks pretty decent (as lightweight puzzle games go). It reminds me a bit of the old Merlin handheld. I could swear I played something else with the same mechanic recently, but I can't think of what it is.

Game.com!! I always gotta chime in when I see some new Game.com reviews.

Williams Arcade Classics was one of 4 Game.com games I owned when I had this system as a kid (along with Jurassic Park, Quiz Wiz, and Lights Out).  I got it because it was like 60% off and the only Game.com game left to choose from when a department store called Bradlee's was going out of business.  I didn't like it much at all, but then again I wasn't much into "arcade classics" as a 12 year old.  Maybe I'd like it more now.

Not sure if I have Wheel of Fortune in my collection, but I've definitely never played it.  Thanks for reviewing it; I'll have to check it out.

Of your remaining Game.com games to review, Quiz Wiz is the only one I have played (not counting the Lights Out pack-in, of course; which would be good to review).  Quiz Wiz is a trivia game based on the Tiger handheld game from the 90s.  I liked the trivia part of it as a kid, but I bet you'll find the announcer dude really annoying.  It has to be better than Jeopardy, though.  Wheel of Fortune 2 would be good to try, but, as you likely know, that is the rarest game on the system and a bit pricier than the rest.
