Opening paragraph by Vinny Mainolfi

What on earth is this game all about! Who the hell is Bob Winner? ZZAP64 magazine didn't seem to be too impressed with this game, giving it an overall score of 12%! That is bad. Anyway, Brendan Phoenix has kindly taken the lead on this strange game and grabbed, what we think is, the ending. Over to Brendan...

Spooky! Watch the statues face; it smiles like Maggie Thatcher!


The End.

HOW WAS IT COMPLETED?: Didn't use any trainers or pokes, just save states - pretty easy once you figure the controls out and had 5 lives reaming at the end.

SO WHAT HAPPENS?: At the end of level 3, I approach a door, which I presume what the 3 keys are for. Once entered, it states 'REGENERATION COMPLETE' and you get your maximum 9 lives back again and a little tune plays. This screen has some sort of Buddha statue with an animated smiling face and some sort of dancing native in a vase (I'm not making this up!).


  • Brendan: Pity there is no congratulations message or anything. Was an ok game to play - didn't deserve as low as 12% in my honest opinion (although I wont be rushing back to replay it any time soon). Some little ending text would have been nice. The end screen is ok - don't know what the object of the game is - don't even have the original to read the packaging - so maybe ending up in this strange room makes sense??
  • Vinny: Bit of a strange one this. The final screen does appear to be the ending, but I am not too sure what the programmer was trying to achieve. With that in mind, it is hard to score the ending.
  • Neil Collins: I played this one a few times and got to the end, but the ending wouldn't load up on the version that I played. I tried again with another cracked version and the same happened again so I gave up. Glad Bren completed it. I believe that is the end sequence - looks a bit bizarre, but it's pretty good I suppose - considering the game is very poor and the graphics are quite ropey throughout. Well done Bren.
  • Andrew Fisher: Very odd, I remember something about a round the world trip from the review but never played it...
  • Andy Vaisey: Awful name, terrible game, shoddy ending.

FINAL SAY: Is this really the ending!

G.E. RATING: 3 / 10
