> BARBARIAN: The Ultimate Warrior by Palace Software

Completed by Matthew Rogers and Vinny Mainolfi

Here's a cracking game that captured the hearts of all the wannabe warriors out there. Mastering the head-chop move would ensure that slaying your opponent would never be the same again.

Not a difficult game to play - I first completed it on the day of release - but at the same time it is worth the challenge. And thanks to C64Endings 3rd team member, Matt Rogers, we have the ending for all to see ...

Version 1: The End.

Version 2: "Oo-er, Missus!"

HOW WAS IT COMPLETED?: MATT: "Getting to the end is easy enough without cheating, but beating Drax is something else - this is where Remember's top-drawer crack of the game is required (simply walk up to the skin-wig sorcerer until he disappears)."

VINNY: "Yep, I used the same cheat :-)"

SO WHAT HAPPENS?: After killing Drax, our Barbarian steps back allowing the Princess to appear and show off her warez. The Barbarian then approaches the Princess and proceeds to show off one of his moves, at which point the Princess says, "Well done big boy".

Now, that was the clean version. I had a look at the sprites and decided to swap a few around to give you the ADULT version of the ending. I had never seen this ending before and so it was a first for me c(",). Anyway, everything is the same apart from one minor detail: the Princes is TOTALLY NAKED! "WHAT?!"

COMMENTS: It's a cool little ending and suits the game down to a tee. The adult version adds a little extra dimension to it all and if anything else, made me laugh my socks off.

FINAL SAY: It's cool and worth a look - especially seeing a NAKED female sprite - FFWHOOOAAAR!

G.E. RATING: 6 / 10
