A Dutch series of shovelware CD-ROMs (including freeware and shareware games). Very little can be found on the internet about these discs. It is unknown to me whether any editions besides these two have ever existed. Since the original discs were damaged due to severe scratches and foil damage, small parts of the ISOs will be unreadable (typically under 1MB of corrupt data per disc). As they have been recovered with ddrescue, they should still be usable otherwise. A disc label scan of one of...

It is a Berzerk-esque arcade style game in which you navigate the maze like rooms and destroy enemy robots. The walls are electrified and destroy all that touch them. The first PCE CD game in a long time! For the PC-Engine/Turbo Grafx-16 Super CD-ROM² platform. System Card 3.0 is required to play. This is a timed demo which will cease to function after roughly 10 minutes of game play. http://www.aetherbyte.com/insanity.php
