Completed & Reviewed by Matt Rogers

Remember this one? Chirpy tunes, pretty graphics, stupidly hard... Can't remember if I ever completed back in the day - surely I couldn't have had the patience, even with unlimited lives.

Keep running to the right ...

... and then get to the blue safe before you are shot!

"Made it!"

Totting up the scores.


The End.

HOW WAS IT COMPLETED? Things are soooo easy nowadays with save states.

SO WHAT HAPPENS? There are three levels to the final section: First you have to make your way across a river by way of jumping on stepping stones, all the while avoiding grenades from the forest and scaring the birds with your gun; secondly it's a dash across a the enemy's compound, tackling soldiers coming at you left and right, and avoiding the nasty grenades again; then, the final level, which resembles a kind of poor man's Mission AD where you're inside the baddie's headquarters and have to find a safe. Again, the soldiers come thick and fast - duck and shoot, duck and shoot all the way to the end, which, as you expect, is arse.

COMMENTS: Standard end-of-level message, but this time you get a 'well done' before it's back to the title screen. Not much reward for a game so ridiculously hard.

I've saved it one screen from the end. Keep walking right until you hit the blue safe - be warned, though, as the soldiers will rush from behind firing like no bugger's business, so keep turning, ducking and firing...

FINAL SAY:  Not much reward for a game so ridiculously hard.

G.E. RATING: 2 / 10
