There are some basic rules for CD-i which are not always clear to newcomers: For example that the CD-i is region free and all CD-i titles of the world will work on any local player (with a few exceptions). Another thought frequently asked is if the Mouse is exclusive to certain titles. That's not true, the CD-i Mouse is really just a pointing device just like the gamepad. It is basically compatible with every single CD-i title, but it's true some works better than another. For example, you don't want to play The Apprentice with a mouse, do you? You'd be rolling the ball constantly.
Titles which use a pointer on screen are controlled well with a mouse, like shooting games and point&click adventure games. It's not about if a title is compatible with the mouse, it's just that you make the choice what will work the best for you. Also the Peacekeeper Gun is basically compatible with all CD-i titles. It just doesn't work when you play Micro Machines with the Peacekeeper Gun, if you know what I mean! Good titles to use with the Mouse: Escape from Cyber City, Burn:Cycle, Mad Dog McCree , Mad Dog II, CD Shoot, 7th Guest, Myst, Creature Shock, Thunder in Paradise, Lemmings, Inca, Chaos Control, Solar Crusade, Defender of the Crown, Voyeur, Who Shot Johnny Rock?, L'Affair Morlov, you know any more?
