OMG! This game makes me feel SOOOOOO old. I remember playing it to death back in 1984 and loving every moment of it. I was, and still am, a fan of those early Taskset games and so it's always a joy to load one up and have a few games. Poster Paster is probably my fave :) Anyway - little did I know that Bozo's Night Out was going to have such a poor ending...

Bozo makes it back home in one piece!

Time to turn the light off and get some kip.

Oh Dear! Rotten Liver!

The End.

HOW WAS IT COMPLETED?: I'm presuming that Neil cheated all the way to the end :)

SO WHAT HAPPENS?: Unfortunately, nothing much. We see Bozo coming back to bad and turning the light out, with the message: "SAFELY HOME" We then see Bozo's hospital bed and the words: "YOU CAN CERTAINLY KNOCK EM BACK. TAKE A BOZO ROTTEN LIVER AWARD. GAME OVER." The game then goes into the standard High Score Entry screen.


  • Vinny: Sadly, this game ending wasn't going to be any more than what it actually is. Unfortunately, it is very boring and lacklustre :( I still like play the game though.
  • Neil: I did indeed cheat to beat the game, but I do remember completing most of it with one life ! When I played it years ago I couldn't get very far but I had a bit of a lucky streak when trying to complete it for the website. I wanted to say that I actually beat it without cheating for once, but I died a few too many times on the last one or two levels. I was so near yet so far...

    Pretty poor game though - but probably not so back in the day.
  • Andrew Fisher: Taskset were always very innovative, and apparently Bozo was inspired by the amount of time they spent in the pub after work... For the time it's a pretty standard sort of ending.
  • Brendan Phoenix: Yeah, defo standard ending for back in the day.

    I do agree about the Taskset games though - usually good fun.

FINAL SAY: Poor game ending :(

G.E. RATING: 1 / 10
