Gerry the Germ is a weird game that consists of several mini games where you control a germ around the inside of an infected human. Your task is to bring the human down by infecting various parts of his body. It’s a tricky little game that is very frustrating (especially the pancreas level – what on earth do you do there?!?). With a little help from Holgi (one of the c64endings website contributors), I was able to beat the game…
The final level is complete.
Gerry and a heart?
And now a bed and a human?
What IS going on?
The human lays down…
… The End.
HOW WAS IT COMPLETED?: Using an an infinite lives poke and a level skip supplied by Holgi.
SO WHAT HAPPENS?: Once you have completed the final level – the heart – the screen flashes and the end sequence starts. Gerry is shown on the screen with the word ‘VICTOR!’ at the bottom. Then follows a short animation of the infected man making his way to a couch, where he promptly lies down. The words ‘DOWN BUT NOT OUT‘ are displayed and the game restarts once the player hits the return button.
Neil: An short ugly end, but an end nevertheless. 3/10.
Vinny: Hmmmm… definitely a strange ending. Then again, it’s a bit of a strange game! 3/10 from me too.
FINAL SAY: A fair enough end. Playing the game made me feel quite ill. I’m glad it’s over.

G.E. RATING: 3 / 10
