I'm at a bit of a disadvantage with this game because I hadn't played it until Andy sent in the ending... and then I could only manage a few minutes of the tedious game play. Needless to say that it's a poor-man's Impossible Mission - and that's being kind! Andy described the game as such: "the premise of the game is to use the android to sabotage the alien invaders ship and escape before it blows!"

So if you can be bothered to check it out, then go for it... but don't expect anything rewarding at the end!


You're outside the final room...


...you press one of the buttons to enter...


The End.

HOW WAS IT COMPLETED?:

  • Andy (MACC): Used various POKES to get through the game.
     
  • Vinny: You know me... I'm a COMPLETE CHEAT! I just froze the game using my Action Replay Cartridge, went to the MONITOR, and typed 'G BF87', which jumped me straight to the end ;-)

SO WHAT HAPPENS?: Once you have opened the final door, the ending message appears, which reads: "MISSION ACCOMPLISHED. PRESS FIRE TO REPORT FOR DUTY. [G]OOD JOB."

COMMENTS:

  • Andy (MACC): After all that they couldn't even spell GOOD JOB properly! A very poor ending to a game that could have been great if not for the many, many bugs! 0.5/10.
     
  • Vinny: What an absolute piece of piddle! The coder could have done so much with this one, but chose the simple and ineffective way out. 0.5/10 from me.
  • Gaz Spence: Impossible Mission on budget just about sums this game up. The text ending is terrible, with the coder not even using a custom font. I suppose we can't be too harsh given it seems like it was home brew effort.
  • Andy Vaisey: Wow! A text ending AND in the standard ROM font. Worse than bad...
  • Andrew Fisher: Can't say I've ever played this one - certainly would not play it to reach that ending!

FINAL SAY: Android CUNTrol!

G.E. RATING: 0.5 / 10
