Game Covers - Tenpin Bowling and Basketball (Philips G7000)

Tenpin Bowling

Key 1 selects league night. Key 2 selects faster tournament play. Try to knock down all the pins (it's not just a matter of hitting them head-on). A strike (no pins standing after first bowl) scores 30. A spare (no pins standing after second bowl) scores 15. Otherwise, you score the number of pins knocked down per FRAME (each FRAME consists of 2 bowls unless you get a strike). Scores appear after each frame. The player with the most points after 10 frames wins.

Basketball

Gain possession of the ball and shoot into your opponent's basket, but you'll have to escape his close marking first. Each score gains 2 points. If you hold the ball for too long, or shoot when your opponent is touching the ball, you give away possession. When the 5 minutes are up (time = 00:00), the player with most points wins.

Game Covers - Space Monster (Philips G7000)

You are confronted with a very serious threat. A merciless space monster, aided by eight robots with rocket launchers, is attacking your planet. You only have one robot at your disposal and four mobile rocket launchers. Three of your rocket launchers are stored safely in rocket-proof bunkers. 

It's up to you now to defend your planet by destroying the enemy robots and the invading space monster. What makes it more difficult is, the enemy robots operating from behind rocket-proof protective shields. They shift back and forth however to take pop shots at your robot and his rocket launcher. That's when you have to try and be quick enough to hit them. Be careful though, somehow they seem to know exactly where you are. You are safe only as long as you hide behind one of your bunkers. 

The monster itself, even though he tries to keep out of reach behind his robot lines, is adding his share. If you hit and destroy him, don't be overjoyous. Another one will appear within a few seconds and the battle continues. 

If your rocket launcher is hit by an enemy rocket, your robot will survive but is unprotected. It's up to you now to move him to one of your bunkers as quickly as possible. When you press the action button you have another rocket launcher again but the bunker and its protection have disappeared. 

When you have succeeded in destroying all invading robots, the monster itself will descend in a final, desperate attempt to destroy your rocket launcher and robot. 

If you have lost your fourth and last rocket launcher and have no means left to defend your robot, the space monster will come down too and take your robot. 

You score when you succeed in destroying all enemy robots plus the monster. If you lose, the monster scores a point. 

The war is over when either party has won ten battles.

Game Covers - Laser War (Philips G7000)

It's a rough situation you're in when you find yourself on a space patrol, accompanied by a colleague in his fighter craft. You are stranded in a field of asteroids, whirling all around you. You have both hands full to try and avoid a collision.

To make matters even worse, two mysterious but obviously belligerent flying saucers make their appearance. It's up to you and your friend now to defend the galaxy against the invaders by trying to shoot them down with your laser guns. It may appear to be a desperate battle at first because every time you succeed in shooting down an enemy saucer, another one will automatically appear at the scene of the battle. You will soon find that those saucer pilots are excellent shots too!

The asteroids change colour constantly. If your craft crashes, is hit by an enemy laser or one from your colleague, you can only restore the damage and take part in the battle again when you move the joystick of your handset, pressing the action button, simultaneously, when one of the asteroids assumes the original colour of your craft!

The sporting side of the event is to try and outperform your friend in shooting down invading saucers. The one who scores ten hits first is the winner. Needless to say, you don't score when shooting down your colleague (accidentally?).

There's no time to rest.. immediately after, you are called back into action again! Watch out and good hunting!

Game Covers - Last Ninja 2 (Commodore 64)

Once beaten, but not destroyed, the evil Shogun Kunitoki used all his mystic powers to transport himself through time and establish a new empire of tyranny in modern day Manhattan.

In fear of Kunitoki's growing powers, the arcane gods used all their wisdom to bring you, the Last Ninja, across the abyss of time and confront your arch-enemy once more.

You arrive in this frightening and awesome modern world bringing nothing with you save your intelligence, skill and cunning and a burning desire for vengeance.

Will this be the final battle? Can you vanquish Kunitoki once and for all?
