I am a big detective fan - mainly Columbo and
Sherlock Holmes. Unfortunately, this game doesn't really
tickle my fancy and so I haven't really bothered too
much with it - apart from grabbing the ending ;-) The
graphics and music are nice, but the game play isn't
Saying that, the game
ending IS worth a look ...
Basil is in pursuit of
the evil professor ...
... but for some
strange reason he isn't getting any closer.
Finally, the professor
heads straight for a cloud ...
... and disappears into
thin air! The End.
HOW WAS IT COMPLETED?:
Do you REALLY need to know this one? Well, I used a
cracked version of the game that game me the option to
'view end sequence first?'.
SO WHAT HAPPENS?:
The final end sequence sees Basil piloting a hot air
balloon and chasing the evil professor. Whilst this
animation is going on, there is a scroller at the foot
of the screen which says, "Basil pursues the evil
professor Ratigan over old London Town ... But in vain
... The professor's airship is too fast and he escapes
to carry out even more fiendish plans. To be continued
During the whole end
sequence there is a nice piece of ending music from Ben
Daglish ("Hi Ben").
quite a simple game ending but very cool and effective.
I didn't really expect it and so it was a delight to see
- Ben's music helped too.
It's worth a little look (",)
to view more endings.
