Goody

goody01.png
Opera Soft 1987
Genre: Action
Rating: 5/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

Goody is about a thief in search of a big bank to clean. An easy job if the streets, buildings, sewers and everything between his hideout and the place were not as filled with dangers.

Similar to another classic Opera's game this is mainly action oriented. It's a platformer where you must make good use of your weapon and legs to reach the end of the game.


Goof Troop

Capcom 1993
Genre: Puzzle
Rating: 4/6
Licence: Commercial
System: SNES

It's about time to offer our younger visitors something with educational value. I'll do it with 'Goof Troop' and I also admit that I played it although I?m not 8 any more (didn't you guess that?). How embarassing, but I'll try hard to justify it with this test.


Grand Monster Slam

Slam01.png
Golden Goblins / Rainbow Arts 1989
Genre: Action, Sport
Rating: 3/6
Licence: Commercial
System: Amiga
Really simplistic games can nevertheless be totally addictive. In fact, among the most addictive games ever released, you will especially find a lot of simplistic ones. Accessibility plays a major role here. If you've got a strong central game mechanic, what can go wrong? In fact, Grand Monster Slam doesn't stop there. It takes its game mechanic, which has actually been "inspired" by another game completely unknown to western audiences, to a new level through imaginative design.

Grand Theft Auto

DMA Design 1997
Genre: Action
Rating: 5/6
Licence: Freeware
System: PC

Have you ever wanted to be a criminal, had you ever wanted to steal cars and kill people or drive at 100 something Miles Per Hour or all of the above? Then Grand Theft Auto has all of your options covered.


Grave Yardage

Activision 1989
Genre: Sport, Action
Rating: 2/6
Licence: Commercial
System: C64

American Football with monsters - that's Grave Yardage. It adds elves, ghouls and wizards into the mix, and all of them are after an eyeball with legs - the stand-in for a ball. Points are scored the usual way: by carrying the ball all across the field. Or... by beating up the enemy players.


Gravitar

Atari 1983
Genre: Action
Rating: 3/6
Licence: Commercial
System: Atari 2600

Gravitar has often been likened to Asteroids and Lunar Lander. What is mentioned less often is that it is basically an inverted Atlantis: Instead of defending a planet surface against space ships, the player is doing the attacking in this case. In a star system, several planet surfaces need to be stripped of their defenses. The catch: gravity.


Great Courts

Blue Byte / Ubi Soft 1989
Genre: Sport, Action
Rating: 5/6
Licence: Commercial
System: Amiga

The strangest thing happened with my floppy disk of this game. It would stop loading in the middle of the booting process. I thought it was hopelessly broken - wrong. All I had to do was take the disk out of the drive and put it in again, and it would continue loading as normal. Of course, this happened several times every time I loaded the game, so playing became quite a piece of work. Even with several years of university behind me, I still can't figure out a logical explanation for this behaviour. An unsolved mystery of computer science.


Great Naval Battles Vol. IV: Burning Steel, 1939-1942

gnb4_000.png
SSI 1995
Genre: Strategy, Simulation
Rating: 4/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

Great Naval Battles IV: Burning Steel is the last part of the quite interesting GNB series by SSI. It covers naval warfare in World War II with a focus on artillery battles rather than aerial attacks (similar to Task Force 1942 by Microprose).


Green Beret

Imagine / Konami 1986
Genre: Action
Rating: 3/6
Licence: Commercial
System: C64

A (heavily deformed, if the title screen is to be believed) US elite soldier taking out a complete army on his own to free prisoners of war. Rambo? Yes, that's the general idea, just multiplied to even more bizarre levels of (non-) realism. Green Beret's gameplay is about as original as its setting. It's a standard sidescroller, with the player's sprite trying to reach the far right side of each level (and a final fight waiting there).


Grim Fandango

Grim01.png
LucasArts 1998
Genre: Adventure
Rating: 5.3/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

[Herr M.] For a long time I thought of Grim Fandango as the ‘LucasArts game with the skeletons’, whose appeal was a total mystery to me. Maybe it was because back then, when the game was released, I had been somewhat over-saturated (like many others) by countless adventure games. Also they started copying each other more and more and most of the time provided some awfully boring ideas. Still a game, in which you slip into the role of a bony man, seemed just too silly. In the meantime adventure games are returning again and LucasArts finally closed its gates. So after fifteen years I decided to fill a gap in my knowledge.
