> BOUNCY BALLS - by Cherry Software


• Completed & Reviewed by Vinny Mainolfi

This is a SERIOUSLY cool game: superb graphics, nice SFX and cracking gameplay - well done Cherry software. So how does the game ending compare? ...


A nice little message and some Bouncing Dudes at the foot of the screen.


A 'thumbs up' from the boss himself (",)


NIIIIIIIIIIIIICE graphics (",)


And finally the story ending and then the credits.

HOW WAS IT COMPLETED?: I bladdy chee-id - alwight? [said with a Michael Caine accent]

SO WHAT HAPPENS?: Little creatures bounce from the left to the right of the bottom part of the screen whilst the top part displays some great pictures.

From there, the screen changes to a massive picture of a bouncy ball, which is then accompanied by a superb sunset. Finally, a scrolling message appears which reads,

"CONGRATULATIONS! YOU HAVE DONE A TREMENDOUS JOB IN SAVING THE WORLD AND SHALL BE REWARDED THEREAFTER. THE WORLD OF BOUNCY IS ETERNALLY GRATEFUL AND A STATUE WILL BE SKULPTURED TO YOUR HONOUR.

The whole ending is accompanied by some nice music (",).
