Description of Symantec Game Pack

Symantec Game Pack is an above-average collection of 6 mini-games written by Charles Timmerman and published by Symantec in 1991 for Windows 3.1.

All six games are computerized versions of common parlor games, some not usually seen in a PC game (Jacks and Smart Dots). The games are a nice mix of action, puzzle and strategy: Jacks (typical pick-up-the-jacks-and-catch-the-ball game a lot of people play as kids), Memory Blocks (a straightforward memory game), Pick Up Sticks (another game I played a lot as a kid, where you must pick up one stick at a time from the random pile without moving others), Hangman, Smart Dots (an interesting and more complicated variant of Tic-Tac-Toe), and Code Breaker (a straight clone of deduction game Mastermind).

Overall, Symantec Game Pack is a decent collection that is fun for short coffee breaks, although the quality of games is inconsistent: I found Smart Dots and Hangman quite interesting, but the rest only marginally above average. Worth a look if you're looking for some short games to play at the office.

My wife has played these since they came out, however it looks like they no longer work in windows 10.

All 6 games work just fine.
I find 'Blocks' to be the most entertaining, as the game includes a score board. I feel a scoreboard would make 'Hangman', 'Sticks', 'Jacks', and 'Code Breaker' more fun to play. Also, I wish 'Dots' and 'Hangman' had two player modes. The graphics are simple, yet enjoyable. That said, I would definitely recommend the game pack to anyone.

Symantec made games!? 2013-12-13 0 point DOS version

I had no idea that Symantec published games before they moved on to antivirus software. Huh. Learn something new everyday.
