Philips considered the videogame side of the CD-I system very
important and began to produce and licence a lot of games for thier
CD-I systems. Not many of the games were really good but a few
precious gems were produced. Tetris and a spectacular Tennis game
were two of these good titles. Anyway these titles weren't enough so
Philips began to buy rights all around the world to gain well-known
videogame names. The most important accord was with Nintendo that
gave the Holland electronic giant rights to produce games based on
their most popular characters. So we could play with Mario Hotel, a
fun platform game and with all the characters of the Zelda world in
three different games! Other notable titles were Dragon's Lair I and
II, Space Ace and 7th Guest. A few later titles required the FMV
add-on module to run on the system. More CD-I will be reviewed on
this page soon!

It's not a game, anyway it's a good example of a well done interactive title for CD-I systems. It was completely translated in Italian but there were other versions.
