Gerry the Germ Goes Body Poppin (Firebird Hot / Firebird Silver £1.99)


Gerry the Germ Goes Body Poppin’ is an arcade game set inside a human body. At its heart (pun intended!), Gerry the Germ is a humourous game where the player plays the eponymous hero whose task is to try and kill his host!

The body is made up of different areas, and Gerry has a different task to complete in each one. He starts off in the Lungaroo (lungs) where he has to collect five constantly moving oxygen bottles whilst avoiding the red and white blood cells. If Gerry makes contact with the cells, then he's thrown into the the Blundder (bladder).

The second area is Kiddin' Eh! (kidneys), where Gerry has to collect enough kidney beans to allow him to escape via the Loo. Once again the target of his infections (sorry!) is constantly on the move, and they are always other enemies to avoid.

The Blundder (bladder) is like a big lake, with Gerry rowing a small boat across it. He has to let the lake flood, whilst keeping his leaky boat afloat and avoiding the usual nasties. A toilet roll comes in very handy during this section of the game!

The next section is the Stonemac (stomach), which is a tricky platform level featuring acid bottles, healthy food and aspirin.

In the Punkreas (Pancreas), Gerry must avoid ticket inspectors and white blood cells, infect first aid kits and throw coals from the train atthe inspector. The dubious rail connection (oh, another little pun!) is St. Pancras Station in central London.

The Heart String (Heart) is the highway that leads to Gerry's ultimate gaul (sorry!), the Heart. For some bizarre reason, Gerry has to use a bow & arrow (presumably this was where the strings comes into it!) and shoot arrows at a moving Television set to deflect them at the heart, whilst avoiding the body guards.
