MaxPlay Classic Games is an unlicensed 10-in-1 multigame, released exclusively in Europe in 2004 for the PlayStation 2 and GameCube.

Overview

The compilation includes ten games, all of which were originally created for the Game Boy Advance, running through a custom GBA emulator. The PlayStation 2 version plays generic music over each game, while the GameCube version features actual sound emulation.

The games included are:

  • Bounty Hunter X
  • Chopper II - The Return
  • Loop the Loop
  • From Above (Space Invaders clone; listed as "Invaders")
  • Dragon Tiles 3
  • Proxima
  • Paddle Panic (a combination of Breakout and Pong)
  • Jetpack 2
  • Popem! (Pang! clone)
  • Super Power Shot

Trivia

  • This is the only known unlicensed game to have been released on the GameCube.
  • A pirated copy of Metroid Fusion is in the game's files, inside a folder labeled "DELETE_ME".
  • The center of the disks are reportedly taken from other licensed titles on the PS2/GameCube (such as Wild Wild Racing), with a new outer rim glued around it. Presumably, this was the only way Datel could beat the consoles' copyright protection, as the systems would read the center as an official disk.[1]
