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.


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

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

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.

Grounded in Space

Matt Wigdahl 2009
Genre: Adventure
Rating: 3/6
Licence: Freeware
System: Interpreter

There's probably not much to do living on some asteroid in deep space. Grounded in Space's protagonist, a teenage boy, decided to spend his time building a rocket. Anxious to test it, he takes it outside and... it destroys his mother's garden! To finally learn some responsibility, learn about the hardship of life and learn to appreciate hard work, he is sent out to a mining belt in a spaceship - all on his own. The journey is supposed to be automated, so our hero has some time to read and familiarize himself with the basics of space mining. Things take a nasty turn soon enough, though, when he encounters pirates and a damsel in distress...

Guerrilla War

SNK 1989
Genre: Action
Rating: 5/6
Licence: Commercial
System: NES

Hail the heroes of the revolution who came to save the island (an island which is suspiciously similar to Cuba) from the military dictatorship. Two guys that aren’t Castro and el Che, even when they look exactly like them, but who surely are a pair of one man armies.


Ultimate Play The Game 1985
Genre: Action
Rating: 4/6
Licence: Commercial
System: ZX Spectrum

Howdy doody, pardner! Feel like serving the law and shootin' fer good reason? Well then, you came to the right place! Welcome to Black Rock and let's get the business started today! Congratulations, you're now the sheriff Quickdraw, and your task is to clean this old western town of armed villains compromising peace and safety of its citizens. Yep, that's right, it's Gunfright from Ultimate Play The Game, one of the most noted and commonly played games on ZX-Spectrum, where in capacity as town's sheriff you must alone fight the criminal world and put an end to it once and for all.

Gunship 2000

Microprose 1992
Genre: Simulation
Rating: 6/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

In my opinion 'Gunship 2000' is one of the best heli-simulations. Replayability is high due to the many machines you can fly and the randomly generated maps, so no two missions will be the same.
