Nailed it! So apparently there are THREE isometric type games on the Game Boy, that I've found so far.

Wow, thanks for that! I'll be adding it to my collection very soon, I think. Any other German exclusive gb games I should know about?

It's obviously C64 but it looks like a magazine type-in, or one of those games from one of those early book/cassette combos, like the Times Book of Computer Puzzles and Games. (which, amazingly, is listed at Amazon in the US - here! http://www.amazon.com/Times-Computer-Pu ... 0283991631)

Well, Trip World would be the obvious answer but even cart only that tends to fetch 70+ lately. But the list of German exclusives is over 30 titles long with gems like Avenging Spirit, Altered Space, Bubble Bobble 2, Dig Dug, Ninja Boy, Popn Twinbee, Quarth, Sword of Hope and Xenon 2 on it. A few more if you include the Austrian/Swiss exclusives like Hammer Harry or Ninja Boy 2. Keep in mind though that almost all of these fetch a premium on ebay. Mega Man 4 and 5 might be German exclusives too but both are expensive.

Ok, game is called "French Military Game".
It was a 3rd party c64 game much like chess where you had to trap the foes main piece by surrounding it with your own.

I'll throw the floor open to another :)
