Great review! I didn't expect such a comprehensive look at the individual games. Shame that Super BurgerTime
turned out to be a bust, but the rest more than make up for it. So much cool stuff that I have to check out now - thanks especially for introducing me to Varth
What did you mean by "curious gaps" in the selection? Apart from a few really big names like Ghosts 'n Goblins
and Double Dragon
, the whole lineup seems like a haphazard mishmash of whatever second-tier near-classics could be thrown on.

should say either Although I'm the most jaded video game player on the planet
in the first half or I was fascinated to no end by this collection
in the second.
(This collection is not the most jaded video game player on the planet.)Bump n Jump
needs apostrophes around the N.This side-scroller shooter is bizarre!
should say side-scrolling shooterSide-scrolling starring a witch reminded me of the Cotton series
should say This side-scroller starring a witch
"Courtesy" is misspelled in the screenshot credit.
And a typo in the update to the Retro-Bit Generations review: "superseded" has an S in the middle, not a C.
