Simtex's celebrated galactic conquest strategy Master of Orion inspired the coining of the term '4X'--explore, expand, exploit and exterminate--in 1993 with its delightful blend of research, diplomacy and combat. The first sequel, Master of Orion II: Battle at Antares followed in 1996 and is also bundled with the $5.99 bargain pack.

The digital distributor's streak of Atari acquisitions will continue on Thursday with Monolith's gory shooter Blood in a $5.99 bundle pack 'One Unit Whole Blood' with its 'Plasma Pak' and 'Cryptic Passage' addons, while Master of Magic is also due "soon."
