Completed by Ricky Derocher & Neil Collins

B.C.'s Quest for Tires II: Grog's Revenge is a C64 classic. It was a very original game for it's time - It's like a caveman version of Nebulus. You control the caveman Thor on a stone unicycle around the ledges of mountains and into tunnels, collecting clams (which act as stone age currency). You have to collect enough to pay the toll to the toll keeper caveman called Peter, to access the next level. It sounds easier than it is, because the exits are well hidden and you are chased around the mountain by the evil Grog, who's scream is enough to send you flying off the mountain ledge. There are rocks, holes and monsters to avoid - or you will lose a life. The aim is to reach the end of the last mountain and find the meaning of life.

The final level is complete.

HUH? Another level!


Who is that yellow sack of shite?

He's flying!

Our hero has vanished!


"What you smiling at?"

The End.


Neil: Using a lot of saved games.

Ricky: I got the game ending by using a trained version of the game by Hokuto Force, that gave me unlimited lives

SO WHAT HAPPENS?: Once you have collected enough clams, and found the exit on the fourth part of mountain three, you find Peter for the last time and pay the toll. You then gain access to the final part of the mountain - where you find the meaning of life. You find what seems to be a sheet, wearing a hat with a silly expression on it's face - almost like a stone age scarecrow. The object moves, causing Thor to leap into the air with shock. The sheet is removed to reveal Thor's nemesis Grog - who shout's his name and smiles. The game then ends. Seems like there was no meaning of life - just a wind-up by Grog himself!

COMMENTS: A very good cartoon ending. Some nice animation and a bit of humour.

FINAL SAY: I expected something silly and I did. A great game. Give it a bash.

G.E. RATING: 6 / 10
