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.

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.
