Many thanks to Rio for sending in this game ending,
which was sent in as a VSF (Vice) file and we FINALLY
worked out how to convert it to a .PRG file for ALL C64
So without further-a-do,
here's Rio ...
"... And McGuigan is
out for the count!"
The Final Stats
And the final screen
(".) The End.
HOW WAS IT COMPLETED?:
I played all the way through without a cheat (WHAT?!?!
SO WHAT HAPPENS?:
Barry was hard to beat, but I gave him a flogging in one
of the rounds, only to be told that the audience
was leaving at the end-of-round stat screen. Eventually
I floored him.... and that was it! I was at least
expecting a congratulatory message or belt presentation
or SOMETHING after beating him by knockout... but
nope. The game just ends, and you get the top spot.
That's it. Now all you can do from that point is have
endless rematches with Barry McGuigan and rake in
more money. I hardly call that an ending at all!
In fact the game seems entirely score-based.
COMMENTS: It seems that your stats as a boxer
only increase depending on how high you are on the
rankings. All that training you do only lasts for one
match, and your stats only increase if you win. Here I
was thinking that the training actually made a
difference, like in a role-playing game.
As a rating out of ten, I'm going to knock down Barry
and count him out all the way to 10 until his score is
to view more endings.
