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.


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 - 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?

Game Covers - Vendetta (Commodore 64)

Your brother, a highly regarded professor who works for the Ministry of Defence, has pulled you through a personal hell. If it wasn't for him, where would you be after your heroic career in the army came to an abrupt end. A one-time war hero, you had put your unit on the map. You were the best and they knew it. A role model to all the young rookies. Your methods, though questionable, got the right results. However, your type worried the men at the top: "no man is bigger than the job", you had to go...

Intent on obtaining the secret formula your brother has devised for developing the ultimate weapon, a blood-thirsty terrorist gang has kidnapped him and his daughter. The same terrorist syndicate you had dispersed in Salgon some years previously.

Your work now seemed incomplete... You have to squash them once and for all...

The police think you were involved in the kidnapping, so you must also endeavour to clear your name.

Your paramilitary skills will be tested to the full. With your own personal collection of weaponry and an elite weapon system installed in your Ferrari F40, your strategic mission unfolds across the country,

There are docklands, army camps, airports and parks, all linked with hazardous driving sections where possible death looms with every turning and every new piece of the puzzle solved.

This had become personal. This is now a VENDETTA.
