Game Description: In Splash or Crash, where gravity is your greatest enemy, you play as the stone; or iron ball, jewel and yet more items bizarrely discarded into the abyss. Each item has different speed and durability. Your task is to guide its descent, avoid obstacles and stay in one piece until splashdown. Progress to unlock more items and new, tougher wells.

Game Description: Pac-Man needs no introduction; it’s one of the most popular video games ever made! In this NES version of the game, move Pac-Man through the mazes, avoiding ghosts and eating all the pellets. Beware though; each of the ghosts behaves differently! When Pac-Man chomps a power pellet, he becomes invincible, and is able to eat the blue ghosts. The more ghosts Pac-Man eats in a row, the higher the score. Don’t forget to eat the bonus fruit, too!
