Conclusion: The Guy Game did its job and surprised us with a fun game to play while staring at some boobs. What more could we ask for? In all honesty, The Guy Game is a lot of fun to play with a group of guys, but all good things come to an end and that’s where The Guy Game loses its attraction.
Excerpt: For those who've been following it for the last few years, Toby Gard's Galleon had become something of a legend in videogame circles—though not for the right reasons.

Excerpt: We all know the story of Galleon , don’t we’ If you don’t, then you need only pick up one of the gaming rags and take a look at their coverage of the game to find out that Galleon was originally intended to be released for the original PlayStation back in 1998.
Excerpt: In the eternal struggle of ninjas vs. pirates, the ninjas have won this round. Galleon starts when pirate captain and kung fu master Rhama Sabrier responds to a letter sent from a healer named Areliano.

Summary: "But the stand out for me is the speech, it’s excellent, I can’t praise it enough, they obviously put a lot of time and effort into the sound effects and music and it does show through even after all these years. Excellent work here and it must be noticed by others!

Conclusion: Wer entsprechend lieber forscht als kämpft und vor allem mit einer teils katastrophalen Optik leben kann, darf gerne die Segel setzen und die wunderbare Welt von Galleon erkunden.
