Angry at your boss and peeved at your coworkers? Let off some steam with Take Your Best Shot. Accurately subtitled Twisted Arcade Games for Twisted Minds, this collection provides a much-needed service for today's computerized office, namely, a digital punching bag. The stars of this CD-ROM are the distinctive and indestructible cartoon characters first developed by animator Bill Plympton for MTV. Two of the offerings are updated versions of Pong, the primordial computer game. Pong for the '90s features a cannonball you bounce off walls, thus eliminating Plympton-esque heads in a symphony of splats, sploshes and other hilarious sound effects. Plympton also provides his unique animation for screen savers, icons and a challenging baseball game. The pièce de résistance is the Best Shot game itself, which lets you mash, smash, wallop and whack "The Boss" to your heart's delight (via your keyboard, of course). You can also save your best games and play them back later, when you're feeling particularly vengeful.
