GREMLINS 2: The New Batch
& Reviewed by Neil Collins
Gremlins 2 by Elite is another game I missed out on
in the past. Now having played it, I wish I'd never
bothered. Visually it's pretty good, and looks a decent
movie tie-in, but that's as good as this game gets...
idea is simple - collect a specific item on each of the
levels to progress to the next; however, the bad
gremlins aren't going to make life easy for you. In
fact, they are going to make it damn near impossible.
The game is ridiculously hard, which means not only do
you have to be a gaming god, but you'll also have to put
in hours of playing so that you can memorise the attack
patterns and positions of the attacking creatures. This
is another one of those
C64 games. Don't waste your time on this one.
HOW WAS IT COMPLETED?:
I played a cracked version with tons of cheats including
a level skipper.
SO WHAT HAPPENS?:
The ending is just a picture. It shows the lobby of the
skyscraper where the action takes place. Pools of green
slime which used t be gremlins lie scattered around the
floor. A message above reads 'CONGRATULATIONS. YOU
HAVE SAVED NEW YORK!'.
- Neil: It's an
ending we'd never see without cheats, and it really
wasn't worth the effort. A great shame the game wasn't
easier so that it could be enjoyed. 2/10.
- Vinny: I've
never played this game before, and from what Neil has
said, I don't think I do want to play it! The graphics
do look nice though...
Okay - I couldn't resist
it! I've had a few minutes play of Gremlins 2 since the
last paragraph, and I found it okay. The graphics are
great and really fit well within the game. I didn't play
it for too long and so I didn't really get my teeth into
the game play.
As for the ending... a
pretty neat picture, a 'congratulations', and nice
Cooksey ending tune - but that's it. 4/10 from me.
- Gaz Spence:
I've actually seen a long play of this on youtube - the
gamer caned the game without cheats so goodness knows
how long he spent beforehand working out how to defeat
the Gremlins. Certainly the graphics are very good and
the ending is what I'd call average - the picture and
tune make an ok package. Imho it's worth a 4.5 out of
- Andy Vaisey:
Hmmm, I know I've seen the second film but can't for the
life of me remember the plot.
This game was a let down. The graphics are *really*
good, but the game play was monotonous and super solid
hard in a frustrating kind of way. The ending mentions
that dreaded word 'Congratulations', but at least you
get an image and some music. Better than the standard
text only ending, but nothing outstanding. Move along...
- Matt Rogers:
Wowser! That loading screen is the bizzo!!
- Andrew Fisher:
I like the original film (which spawned two different
games, a text adventure and a single-screen action game)
but have not watched the sequel.
Gremlins 2 had some nice ideas and some good graphics,
but the difficulty level is way too high. The ending
screen and tune are OK.
- Brendan Phoenix:
Defo let down by the difficulty level, two thumbs up for
the graphics though.
neat picture, but that's all.
