Though it is incomplete the bundle is 27 games so still a pretty darn good deal for $9.99. Game 27 (if you buy the complete pack) is Zork, the Undiscovered Ungerground. They also have pacs of 5 games for $2.99. Maybe they will add more in the future. Tried looking on their web site for what is in each pac but I can't find any info at all. But the best deal is the 9.99 one.
