Chances are high that if you are a kid of the 80s, one of your first contacts to the world of video gaming was in the form of a Game & Watch game. If this name shouldn’t trigger flashbacks to black and grey gaming action with noisy beeping sounds: This was one of the most famous series of handheld electronic games. All of them consisted of just one game, which ran on a somewhat tiny LCD screen (think old pocket calculator), were the sprites appeared in predefined places. While the detailed cut-out characters were far superior to the very blocky graphics of contemporary video games, the lack of freedom of movement made for some very basic game concepts – most of the time you just had to jump between more or less safe spaces. As primitive as this might sound, back in the days they were actually pretty entertaining and handy too. Just imagine carrying around your games in palm sized plastic cases instead of being stuck with one of those old desktops! Besides at a price of 10-20$ they were actually affordable for kids and teens.


Game of Worlds Tournament

Ade McT 2016
Genre: Puzzle
Rating: 2/6
Licence: Freeware
System: Interpreter

I've never been into trading card games, as I believe they are a total commercial rip-off. Buy to win. After playing this one, I see the strategic appeal, however. The player takes part as a wild card participant in an intergalactic tournament. Nobody would bet a dime on him. Round by round, he challenges opponents and with that, the status quo of the ruling society (or something…).


Gargoyle's Quest

System: Game Boy

Thanks to the bad guy coming back from the hell for hellish things or wherever he was, the realm of the ghouls is in danger. In DANGER! And you know what that means: kill anything that moves while you go randomly from a place to another.


Gargoyle's Quest 2: The Demon Darkness

The ghoul realms is under attack again. Who is behind this? The same bad guy from the previous one. And that's not the only familiar thing here, taking a closer look this looks more like a remake. So come and try Gargoyle's Quest: Cheap Second Part.

Aaah...Gauntlet! Probably one of the most popular games ever to populate the face of this earth. The moments when 'blue wizard needs help' made me lose a huge amount of time on my good ol' C64.


Gateway 2: Homeworld

Legend Entertainment 1993
Genre: Adventure
Rating: 5/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

A large alien spacecraft is approaching earth. The United Nations see this as the opportunity for mankind to establish peaceful relations with extraterrestrials. An illustrious group of representatives is selected to approach the vessel in a small space shuttle. The protagonist, being a veteran 'prospector' of the Gateway project (as told in the first part), is supposed to teach some of what he learned on his travels to distant planets to these people. An easy job. But then, things go terribly wrong: A terrorist group of religious fanatics attacks the facility with poison gas and firearms - the shuttle is the only chance of escape and so the player suddenly finds himself all alone heading towards the alien ship...

Computer version of a well-known (and extremely stupid) TV show. What I'm especially proud of is the how the 'studio audience' is trying to influence you ;)

Written in Quick Basic 4.5.

Geisha

Coktel Vision 1990
Genre: Puzzle, Adventure, Action
Rating: 1/6
Licence: Commercial
System: Amiga, PC (DOS)

After the big success (?) of Emmanuelle, fans (?) could hardly wait for more. So here we have Geisha. A game designed to make the audience appreciate the predecessor even more.

How is that possible? Well, from start to finish, Geisha is a mess. Its plot? Laughable: a mad scientist turns young beautiful women into robot sex slaves and now he has kidnapped your girlfriend. Right, of course! Luckily, the villain has made a number of enemies in Japan's underworld, so if you (literally) play your cards right, you may get some support stopping him.


Gemline

Jobline 2000
Genre: Puzzle
Rating: 4/6
Licence: Freeware
System: PC

Okay... first off, this game is in swedish... or norwegian - you can switch between these languages... and it's completely irrelevant. This game is a Coloris/Columns clone - and a very good one! Concept is simple - get 3 gems in a row, vertical, horizontal, diagonal - and they vanish. The original was usually referred to as a "Tetrislike game" although that kind of reduces the concept to less than it is. Coloris (or Columns ...or gemline) requires a different set of tactics and strategy. You cannot make long term plans as you can (try to) do in Tetris, you have to build and let vanish fast - you CAN prepare a larger collapse, but the game doesn't let you this room, you'll run out of space faster than in Tetris. Some might argue it's not as challenging as Tetris - maybe it's not, but it requires a different kind of thinking, not necessarily easier or harder...
