> GRYZOR by Ocean

Completed by Vinny Mainolfi & Frank Gasking
Reviewed by Vinny Mainolfi

I've always enjoyed playing Gryzor but never felt comfortable with the way that it looks and feels. Saying that, I somehow still enjoy playing it and always strived to complete it at every chance I get.

I actually completed this way back when it was first released and unfortunately I wish I never had! ...

"Kill the muvva!"

"YOU WHAT?!?!"

HOW WAS IT COMPLETED?: I just went through the whole of the game shooting down anything and everything in my path ... erm ... and I MAY have used an infinite lives cheat ;-)

SO WHAT HAPPENS?: Not much! You kill the final boss and then the screen changes to read, "MISSION COMPLETED".


  • Vinny: Now I know why I feel uncomfortable about this game ... because the ending is TOTALLY crap! All that time and effort for what?! I really can't work out why the programmers ignored the fact that such a big game needs a substantial ending!
  • Gaz Spence: The programmer knocked together a brilliant ending sequence that put the CPC's to shame but couldn't incorporate it into the game because of memory issues.

    From the C64 dept. of spin.
  • Andrew Fisher: Bad. The Amstrad version has a funny little animated sequence where the world blows up.
  • Andy Vaisey: I could never get on with this game. What initially seems like a decent conversion, suffers from some bad design choices. Space bar to jump? Ugh. ROM font throughout? Ugh. Super hard difficulty level? Ugh. And that last one is a bit of a kicker considering the poor ending you get as a 'reward' for completion.
  • Brendan Phoenix: Remember this being a demo on side B on Combat School, but it would never load up!

    To be honest, check out the arcade game ending - apart from a few rolling credits all it has our the words' The End' - at least it is accurate in having a shi*e ending!

FINAL SAY : I am not impressed one bit - avoid like the plague :-(

G.E. RATING: 0.5 / 10
