California Games review

Zero Magazine Issue 1 (1990): "Not a bad little bunch, altogether. There are plenty of 'nice touches', and while the graphics may not be exactly 'awesome' (these words are all defined in the instructions by the way), the sound manages to encompass plenty of little ditties and the odd sample. As always, it's much better with a friend or two, although once you've mastered each event the game could become a little wearisome. I enjoyed it, though, and it's definitely my fave Games game to date."
