Everything is accessed through a virtual retro bedroom where the player can load a game, check box art or other material for a game and adjust the virtual radio in the room that plays 80's tunes. The PS2 version has a 3D presentation with licensed songs while the GBA version uses flat images and generic 80's style music. In the PlayStation 2 version all the games are emulated perfectly while the Gameboy Advance version has some slowdown that does not effect the playability of the games.
Most of the games in this collection are family friendly. There are some more action oriented games that have some mild violence. Some may be offended at Bloody Human Freeway on the Gameboy version. The game is identical to Freeway except humans are trying to cross the busy freeway and they leave a blood streak when hit by a vehicle.
