CM 003, Cosmic Swarm, and CM 004, Room of Doom!

Hi everyone, this week's extremely short compared to the episodes lately episode is about Cosmic Swarm and Room of Doom, both by Commavid. I hope that you will try these games out if you haven't already, I think they deserve a chance. Next time I'll be discussing the Atari games Dig Dug and Dukes of Hazzard, and also the un-numbered Stunt Cycle, which was turned into a Dukes of Hazzard game after the fact. Do you have any feedback on these games or games that I've already covered? If so, please send it to or Thank you so much!
