This was a game that I never played as a kid. I probably
would have enjoyed it, as it is a kind of action cartoon
storybook, where the player has to choose which response
to give – which determines which path our hero takes.
There are a few mini games along the way. Some of which
are pretty tricky, but not too difficult once you’ve got
the hang of them.
The final task is
... and the end
sequences comes in the form of a comic.
The final ending
HOW WAS IT COMPLETED?: I played the game without any cheats – but I did use the save-state
option within an emulator a few times. The game’s finale
is a battle with the villain, where you have to deflect
the bombs he throws at you back at him, while leaping
over the rodents that attack your feet. This is probably
the easiest mini-game of them all.
SO WHAT HAPPENS?:
After a few minutes of leaping about and deflecting
bombs, I sent the villain crashing down from his
platform onto his head. This triggers the ending
sequence where we see our hero and the professor escape
the fortress after pulling the self-destruct switch.
Once our heroes are free – the professor is dropped off
in Greece to lay low for a while as our hero gets some
French chick while performing aerobatics in his plane…
Yeah right… happens all the time doesn’t it?
The game ends as expected - as a cartoon storyboard
telling us of the hero’s escape. Worth a look if you
really are bored…
FINAL SAY: Not
too bad. At least they went to the trouble of actually
including an end sequence.
