Grange Hill was a video game made for 8-bit computers including the Commodore 64, Sinclair ZX Spectrum and Amstrad CPC. It was based on Grange Hill, a popular children's television show. The music was done by David Whittaker, but did not include the TV show's theme tune.
The game's protagonist was Luke "Gonch" Gardener, with Paul "Hollo" Holloway as an assistant (see the list of pupils in Grange Hill). The object of the game is to retrieve Gonch's personal stereo from the school after hours, which his teacher confiscated.
Grange Hill is probably most famous for its Anti-Drug message and what is often considered one of the darkest game overs ever, when you walk into a particular screen: "You see a shifty man in a leather jacket. "Hey, Son. Want to buy some of this?" The man offers you a packet of white powder. He is a pusher"
[Player selects "Yes"]
"There is an empty look in his eye as he snatches the money from your hand. His face is pale and drawn; His body thin and unfed. He steals to keep his habit; And makes addicts of children. He is dead, and soon you will be too."
