of the 'death' ending

> BIGFOOT by Codemasters


• Completed & Reviewed by Neil Collins

Bigfoot by Codemasters is a pretty poor platform game. It's a very simple game when you know what to do - but it was working out what to do that was the problem. You control a yeti, and your aim is to free your female companion who is trapped in a cage. To do this you need to rig an electricity supply up to the cage to blow the lock. This is done by completing three tedious tasks, which is no thanks to the naff control system.

The control method is appalling and the animation is very jerky. The sprites are bland and the layout of the screens is very confusing. I think many gamers would abandon this one after a short time playing, as it appears to be a mess of a game - which is a shame as it isn't too bad if you can force yourself to ignore the huge flaws that it has.

This is one of those budget games that could have been far better if a bit more care was taken with the graphics and the programming...

By the way - just before we show you the actual ending, here's a special 'death' ending...


"hmmm... I wonder what's down here..."


"oh shit!"


"Weeeeee..."


The End...(?)

...and now for the actual ending...


Finally the cage is open...


The End.

HOW WAS IT COMPLETED?: I used an infinite energy cheat.

SO WHAT HAPPENS?: Once the circuit is complete, the electricity blows the lock on the cage. A message appears to tell you that the cage opens after smoke rises from the lock. You are told that the two yetis leap hand in hand into the nearest tree in search of bigfoot three. The game then ends.

COMMENTS:

  • Neil: Another simple ending. Typically Codemasters. It was good to beat this one, but the ending is not something that you need to see to be honest. It's very dull. 2/10.

  • Vinny: I hated this game! I only purchased it because I was making a point of collecting all the Codemasters games. I found it totally unplayable and a waste of time.

    As for the ending... I wasn't expecting anything and so this is a bit of a bonus. 2/10 from me too. But then again... it has a unique game ending ditty and I suppose that deserves another point, so it's 3/10 from me.

  • Kungfufurby: his ending is forgettable, just like most of the other endings that I've seen for C64 games...

  • Andrew Fisher: Terrible ending. That's all I have to say.

  • Brendan Phoenix: Big Foot Three?

    Is this some kind of joke that I am not getting as my head is mashed from being in work? Or was this game the 2nd in the series???

    Codemasters and a poor ending - nothing shocks me there.

  • Andy Vaisey: Some quite attractive graphics in this game, but an unplayable game and rubbish ending. And thank GOD for that large Codies logo on the game screen because often I'll break into a sweat during play, momentarily forgetting who published the game. Silly old me.

FINAL SAY: Another ending... another simple text message...

G.E. RATING: 2.5 / 10
