Captain Power and the Soldiers of the Future by Box
Office Software is a game I had never heard of up until
a few hours ago. It sounds grand, and exciting, but it's
a very poor simulator / shoot-em-up with graphics that
lack colour, and game play that lacks variety and
game starts off in a simulator style, and then becomes a
horizontally scrolling shoot-em-up. The final level
involves making various trips from the left side of the
scrolling playing area to the right, and then back again
collecting fallen satellites. Once enough trips are
completed successfully the game ends...
HOW WAS IT COMPLETED?:
I poked some infinite lives and completed the game in no
time at all.
SO WHAT HAPPENS?:
The ending is simply a picture. It shows Captain Power
holding up a gun with the words 'CONGRATULATIONS,
SOLDIER!' displayed above him. Pressing the fire
button restarts the game.
