Legendary video game label Gremlin Graphics is back, Eurogamer can exclusively reveal.
For a few years in the mid 1980s, Sheffield-based Gremlin Graphics seemed capable of releasing quirky original games for fun, and the bouncy bouncy Bounder was a typical example of its ability to pick a winner out of absolutely nowhere.
Released to Gold Medal-winning acclaim from Zzap 64, it was one of those instantly engaging, but thoroughly evil games which required no small amount of patience and persistence to work your way through its many challenges.
Like so many games of its era, the premise was fresh, fun, and intuitive. Guiding a relentlessly bouncing tennis ball around a vertically scrolling obstacle course until you reached a goal was the simple premise - all achieved by punching the ball using a giant boxing glove. Random.
