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 - Race/Spin-Out/Cryptogram (Philips G7000)


A race against time - travel as far as you can before the two minutes are up.  The game calls for a fast reaction-time and precise handling of the joystick control.  There is a time-penalty for crashing.  The game is over when time left = 00:00


Key 2 selects 3-lap racetrack, key 3 selects 15-lap racetrack.  Race your opponent round the corners and barriers of the Spin0out circuit.  There is a time penalty for crashing or spinning the car.  You have a choice of slow or fast speeds, and basic or complex racetracks.


A game of knowledge and deduction.  Type a word or phrase onto TV screen (don't let your opponent see it).  The letters of the phrase are then jumbled up, and your opponent must unscramble them (each correct letter remains on screen).  The screen shows the number of mistakes made.  The player who makes least mistakes wins.

Kayleigh's Retro Isolation 2 - Day 40

A Labyrinth Game for the Philips G7000

"A simple game.  It could do with more mazes, and the sound is soooo annoying, but I liked it 6½ / 10"
