The Running Man

(Grandslam, 1989)

In 2019, the United States of America is a totalitarian state. Ben Richards was convicted for refusing to fire on a group of protesters and has been selected to take part in a deadly TV game show, The Running Man, where contestants must fight a series of armed opponents known as Stalkers – and no contestant has ever emerged alive. You must defeat four Stalkers and then confront the show's creator, Damon Killian. Once you defeat a Stalker, there is a mini-game where you must match symbols; if you succeed, your health is restored for the next zone. Most of the Stalkers are fairly easy to beat, and there are no other opponents to fight before you reach them. The graphics are disappointing and there are very few sound effects, but arguably the worst aspect of the game is the annoyingly fiddly and unresponsive controls.

Run the Gauntlet

(Ocean, 1989)

In the TV series, contestants from four teams faced gruelling land and sea challenges and assault courses, and it's the same here. After choosing which country you want to be (Great Britain, the USA, Holland or Australasia), you're given a random selection of events to tackle. In the land and sea races, it's a matter of steering your boat or vehicle round the track, but the assault course (also known as 'the hill') is an arm-busting, joystick-waggling frenzy. It's a nice game, although some events (e.g. meteors) will take time to be mastered. The graphics are great as well.

Rygar

(US Gold, 1987)

Rygar is on a mission to defeat an evil tyranny, battling through ten stages in this horizontally scrolling platform game. All the usual assortment of aliens and monsters are there, and most of them can fly. However, you'll have to jump over waterfalls and chasms a lot as well, although it is possible to bounce on monsters' heads. Stones also appear out of the ground, and shooting them will reveal one of several types of bonus. The graphics are pretty good although they're not terribly sophisticated, and during each stage, there's no time to relax at all – but fortunately, the game isn't all that difficult. And as for the music, it's also excellent, and strangely familiar...
