To be totally honest, I have never played this game; though when I did load it up for the first time I thought it was an Ultimate game. Anyway, Matthew Rogers has been kind enough to play through and obtain the ending ...

MATT: Got some bad press this game, didn't it! What with being an Ultimate (Staff/Entombed/etc) variant, and well past its sell-by date. Still - it's as good as Blackwyche and Dragonskulle!


"What the F ...!"


"Kill the muvva!"


"A book! Is that all I get?"


Disco Fever.


The End.

HOW WAS IT COMPLETED? MATT: I had to map it in the end in order to work out what was going on - plus using unlimited energy and time, of course!

SO WHAT HAPPENS? Pump it up and just hold down fire and keep it down until the book rises. The screen then flashes to indicate that your adventure has come to an end and that your task is complete.

The final ending screen reads, "WELL DONE! YOU HAVE DESTROYED THE DARK CLAVICLE. YOUR QUEST HAS BEEN FULFILLED."

COMMENTS: Matt mentioned that this game was slated due to being identical to many of the Ultimate games. Unfortunately, this is also true for the game ending, which appears identical to the endings of Entombed and Blackwyche. Saying that, the ending is still acceptable and will give the game player a feeling of completion.

FINAL SAY: It's worth a very quick look.

G.E. RATING: 4 / 10
