No, I'm not talking about the Amish courtship tradition, also known as Gee, Dad! It's Temptation!
Bundling a bunch of older games into a discount compilation at a low, low price to squeeze a few extra dollars out of the back catalog is nothing new. Back in 1985, home computer software publisher Spectral Associates tossed thirty of its early titles into a $29.95 discount package:
Most of these were simple action, card and board games, written in BASIC to a magazine type-in standard -- no doubt they weren't selling tremendously well when this catalog was produced, so the $8-to-$21 original price had become a moot point. I don't think Tiny Calc is even a game -- I believe it was designed to turn your expensive TRS-80 Color Computer into a pocket calculator.
UPDATE: tfernando's comment below raised a worthwhile and inspired further investigation. Tiny Calc was slightly more powerful than I had assumed -- it could function as an adding machine OR as a pocket calculator!
Looking at thirty 1985 US dollars (or thirty-four on disk) for this TREASURY PAC of thirty low-budget games, compared to ten to twenty dollars today for a collection of quality coin-op arcade games from the same era...
It just makes one realize how kind the passage of time can be to gamers' wallets.
