Drop7 | iOS | £1.99/$2.99
Part maths, part Tetris drop puzzle, this devilishly addictive game seems tricky at first but provides plenty of fun after.

Fat Princess Super-Sized Anniversary Edition | PS3 | £11.99/$15.99
We're still surprised at how overlooked this PSN game is. It's like a game of rugby with a rotund royal lady. Buy it!

Sid Meier's Pirates | iOS | £2.49/$3.99
Take over the Caribbean via naval warfare, sword fighting and, erm, dancing? Well worth a look.

    The only problem is that the compatibility isn't guaranteed like it with GOG so good luck at getting some of this stuff to work on modern systems

    @K387 Googling for unofficial patches for most of them works pretty well for me. Get a good patch installed and you're ready to go.

    I bought the full Quake pack during the Summer Sale and they all work fine on Windows 7 x64.

    That's sweet and yes I played all of the Commander Keens lol. I even ket a little booklet with the alien language to english letters translation. Yeah I grabbed Doom 3 CE a while ago since it had Doom 2 on it. This of course was before Doom 2 came to the xbox with it's XBLA release. Doom 3 is really good if you can get around the no flash light on the gun complaint.
