I love this game. Grand Monster Slam is a fantastic,
original sports game. It has great graphics, superb
music, original game play, and most of all it's great
take charge of Dwarf, who has has entered the grand
monster slam tournament. You have to defeat various
other contenders to progress up through the leagues and
win the tournament. You can battle with barbarians,
goblins, dragons and many other mythical creatures who
have also entered the tournament. The object of the game
is to kick all the furry creatures (called Beloms), from
your side of the pitch, over to the opponents side and
then run across the field to claim victory. You can aim
to knock your opponent down with the Beloms, which stops
him kicking for a short time. This allows you to kick
more Beloms across to your opponents side, giving you an
advantage. You have to be careful not to kick the Beloms
out of the playing area, or you will be penalised. There
are also mini games between matches, where you have to
feed the Beloms to lizard-like creatures and also fight
Beloms off with a large stick. It's all great fun, with
lots of humour thrown in.
really fault this game, as I used to play it on the
Amiga a lot and have now discovered that the C64 version
is just as great an experience. You have to play this
game if you haven't already.
Winner is surely
going to win!
What an absolute
HOW WAS IT COMPLETED?:
Using a lot of cheats, which included immunity to beloms
and to be able to pass all the mini-games, even if I
failed the tasks. A very clever trainer indeed.
SO WHAT HAPPENS?:
To become champion you must defeat the current champion
- The Golden Goblin. If you manage to do so, you get
presented with a gold medal and a yellow jerkin by the
king. A picture of the victorious dwarf with his medal
is also displayed. After that, you get to enter your
name in the high score table before the game restarts.
