gorfpgm1, Gorf (Program 1)
Gorf has almost classic status, and it became legendary for its almost unintelligible speech. The game itself was split into five distinct missions. The first was a copy of Space Invaders. The second had 2 laser cannons, with galaxian style escorts. The third was Galaxians. The fourth, Space Warp, had spaceships and Gorfian robots spiralling out from a black hole in the top half of the screen. The fifth had a large flagship at the top of the screen, moving from side to side and dropping bombs. The player had to shoot through the ship's hull and hit the flagship's reactor to complete the round and advance to the next rank. Gorf featured a contoured multi-directional control stick with a trigger style fire button, and the player could move freely in the bottom third of the screen. Bally obviously had high hopes for this game and produced such promotional items as a T-shirt and a players guide.
