Yes I just bought Microsoft Blue Screen Arcade ME (Millenium Edition) ...
it's a compilation of classics, updated for the latest Microsoft OS,
- Blue Screen of Death (3D maze puzzle)
- IRQ Command (similar to Missile Command)
- USB Hunter (pattern-matching card game)
- DLL Alert! (strategy game)
- MIMEsweeper (similar to MineSweeper)
- RegEdit Pro (a new version of RegEdit, with "Snake" game interface)
- DOS Boxplode! (quite fun, really)
- Microsoft Golf Uckyuself (special edition, play against MS executives)
- BackOrifice Enema Attack (pretty dumb, just a system tray icon)
- IEradicator (not really a game -- www.98lite.net/getieradicator.html)
- MS Fright Simulator (really just a collection of new "bomb" sounds)
You also get to install a Blue Screen Arcade Plus! theme, and if you look
on the root level of the CD-ROM there's a copy of R00TTOYS.EXE.
