Griffon is a vertical shooter sharing many similarities with both Namco's "Galaxian" and Taito's "Space Invaders". The player pilots a lone ship that can only move left and right along the bottom of the screen, the majority of Griffon's enemies are small bird-like crafts that fly and attack in formation - in a fashion very similar to the aliens of "Galaxian". Griffon adds to the basic formula by including large multi-part enemies (the 'Griffons' themselves), a 'shield' button (that takes seven seconds to 'regenerate' after use) and a large mothership level. The additional gameplay elements seem to be at the expense of hardware performance. Despite having more basic graphics than "Galaxian", Griffon's ships move in a very mechanical fashion compared to the smooth, nicely animated movements of Namco's classic.
