Tilt (Jul, 1983)
Quatre jeux différents sont proposés. Bataille spatiale est un remake de Space Invaders, avec une différence notable cependant : lorsque vous tirez, vous devez attendre que votre projectile ait atteint sa cible pour faire feu de nouveau, sinon, le second tir annule le premier. En fait cette distinction est plus utile que gênante : elle permet en cas de mauvaise trajectoire de viser de nouveau sans attendre.
Just like its arcade predecessor, the CBS Games version of Gorf is "frog" spelled backwards and, just like its arcade predecessor, this has nothing whatever to do with the game. Also just like its arcade predecessor, the home version is four, four, four games in one. Its premise— like most outer space games— is that Earth is being attacked by aliens and your job is to save the planet.
Although it's missing a few key ingredients, Gorf is a decent arcade conversion -- but it's not all that fun of a game.

All in all, this is a lukewarm effort that will just barely provide your daily recommended allowance of Gorf.
TeleMatch (Jul, 1983)
In Anbetracht der Fülle teurer Kassetten für dieses Videospiel-System sollte man sich überlegen, ob in dem Preis nicht auch etwas Originalität enthalten sein sollte, die länger andauernden Spielspaß erwarten läßt.

I think Gorf is one of those 1982 titles that may have benefited from waiting literally just a few weeks or months for programming solutions to improve to the point where the game could be done justice – that’s just how fast things were moving in the Atari 2600 programming world at that time. As it is, it’s disappointing, to put it mildly.
