Lucky Strixx 2


This sequel was found, dumped, and emulated in MAME.

Double Strixx



This seems to be a Laser Strixx evolution, with minigames.

In the upper image, the attendants' faces are actually portraits of CD Express staff members.

Odeon Twister

A minigame collection. An unit of this game was never found.

Judging from resolution and image quality, this game runs on the newer ARM-based platform.

Odeon Twister 2

Another minigame collection. It's present in MAME, but it does not work at the moment.
