Several video games have been produced, based on Judge Dredd.
In 1987, Beam Software developed the first Judge Dredd video game, published by Melbourne House in the UK. It was not critically well received.
Later in 1987, UK publisher Pirannah were to release Judge Death on the ZX Spectrum and Commodore 64. The company went out of business before it was released. It was to be an Operation Wolf-style first-person shooter featuring Judge Anderson, judging by screenshots available in previews.
1990 saw another 8-bit Judge Dredd game, developed by Random Access and published by Virgin Games. Another side-view platform/shooting game, it received only average review scores.
In 1995, Probe Software released a video game based on the film, Judge Dredd. A pinball machine was released by Bally, based on the same film.
In 1997, Acclaim released JUDGE DREDD an arcade rail-shooter game that used a Light Gun. Dredd must save the mayor, who is being held hostage by a former judge. Live-action cutscenes were played at the conclusion to each stage. Completing the game unlocked the final cutscene where Dredd resolves the crisis.
In 2003, Judge Dredd: Dredd vs. Death was released by Sierra Entertainment, for PC, PlayStation 2, Xbox and Nintendo GameCube. It is a first-person shooter game, where the user takes control of Judge Dredd during a time when vampires have overrun Mega-City One.
