Gods

Bitmap Brothers 1991
Genre: Action
Rating: 5/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

Being a demi-god might sound like a great thing, but it's far from being holiday at the beach with ambrosia and hot young priestesses swarming around you. In fact... it's hard work! After all that demi-god status is somewhat annoying - annoying in the sense of... why only demi-god?! We're talking about a great hero here after all - you! So, off you go to achieve the status of a full god.


Gold Rush!

Sierra 1989
Genre: Adventure
Rating: 1/6
Licence: Commercial
System: Amiga, PC (EGA)

Jerrod Wilson, a journalist living in 1848 Brooklyn, apparantely never got over 'losing' his brother Jake who was forced to leave town ten years ago. Now the protagonist receives a letter from this lost relative. Jake has found gold in California and he urges Jerrod to join him there. And it would be much of a game if Jerrod didn't go along with this...

Sega 1990
Genre: Action
Rating: 2.5/6
Licence: Commercial
System: Amiga, PC (DOS)

[Herr M.] Blood and thunder rule the country: The vicious Death Adder inflicts war on the kingdom and kills people by the dozen. Amongst the numerous victims are the relatives of three great heroes, who finally, when even their best friend gets slain right in front of their eyes, swear revenge.


Goody

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.
