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
HUH? Another level!
Who is that yellow
sack of shite?
Our hero has
"What you smiling
HOW WAS IT COMPLETED?:
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
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.
