Abstract

Gremlin Graphics was responsible for bringing a menagerie of video-game franchises to the gaming world, including the likes of Monty Mole and Jack the Nipper in the 1980s, Premier Manager and Zool in the early 90s, and Actua Soccer and Loaded before the turn of the millennium. If you’re young enough not to have heard of Zool, then you may be surprised to know that he was once seen as the gaming mascot for Amiga computers in the same way that Sonic was for SEGA and Mario is for Nintendo. Zool was a best-selling title that was bundled with every new Amiga 1200, as well as being ported to all the major game consoles of the day. There was even a sequel that featured Zooz (Zool’s girlfriend) and Zoon (Zool’s alien dog).
