The TV advert competition may run and run, no one who has entered has got it right yet, remember we're looking for how many different games you can see in the Game On TV Advert

Lego Pac-Man: The Movie

Some people have a lot of time on their hands

Note: This is a stand alone trailer. It will never be made into a real film. Firstly, I'd like to say a huge thanks to Scott Gairdner for letting me use the audio, titles and the idea from his movie. If you haven't already seen it, watch it here - Watch part 3 here -


Look out for the Gran Turismo Challenge when you're in at Game On. We have a Gran Turismo 4 unit linked up to a projector so that your mates can watch as you either scorch round a lap or make a complete fool of yourself.


Finally it's the Making and Marketing section. This looks at planning, the art of games and how they're sold
Playable games:

The Sims - Sony Playstation 2
Pokemon Yellow - Super Nintendo

There's also Tomb Raider which is included in the cinema section but which includes artwork and the actual Bafta the game won. Look out also for the GTA and Max Payne making and marketing, the games aren't included as they're +18
