Again it was a close call last week when we were voting for the best puzzle game on CD-i, this time between Philips' classic "Pac-Panic" and Dimo's Quest by SPC Vision. Both high quality games, your taste is good people! Anyway Dimo's Quest took the first price with a single extra vote, which pushed it to the final. This week again we welcome you to vote for the best cd-i title. You can vote for 1 or more favourites! Every week we'll spawn a new poll in the left column of this blog: Look at the left column to find the current poll! Be quick as the vote limit is only seven days!
