Tech #7: Frankie Goes to Hollywood: The Video Game

Frankie Goes to Hollywood: The Video Game

Look what I found while checking out the September 1985 issue of ZZAP 64 magazine.  They actually released a Frankie Goes to Hollywood video game! I nearly had a heart attack when I saw it.

What must this game have involved? For the soundtrack, did it play a midi version of "Relax"? Did they seem as flamboyantly gay in CGA? So many questions...

Fortunately, there was additional advertisements to fill in the gaps.

Apparently, you are living in a "mundane" world and must reach the Pleasuredome (which was FGTH's album title).  Reading the description, I found it mildly amusing the writer chose to use the words "sticky buns" in a Frankie Goes to Hollywood advert.



  1. I had this on a "hits" compilation. It was a truly terrible game, really awful. Horrific mangling of FGTH in the background, turgid gameplay... the biggest challenge was to stay awake while playing!
