This game REALLY worked for me: great music, good puzzles and clearly defined gameplay - sorted! On top of all that, I was a BIG Firebird Software collector and so I would have purchased this game whether it was good or not. Unfortunately not everyone held this game in the same high-regard as me and back in 1985, ZZAP64 gave the game an overall rating of 70% - the swines!

I was fortunate to complete the game way back in the 80s and amazingly enough I managed it WITHOUT the cheat. Since completing it (almost 20 years ago now) I haven't once loaded the game up to play and so it was refreshing to have the ending sent to me by David Craddock (a legend in his own right), which brought back some good game-playing memories for me.

Anyway, enough babble, here is the ending courtesy of David ...


CRAZY COLOURS! The End.

HOW WAS IT COMPLETED?: I'm not quite sure how David completed this one, but I do know that it is possible to complete it WITHOUT a cheat c(",).

SO WHAT HAPPENS?: Once you enter the final room, the screen goes green (groovy) and a FANTASTIC Rob Hubbard ending soundtrack fires up - AMAZING!

A scrolling message appears in the middle of the screen, which reads, "THE MISSION HAS BEEN SUCCESSFULLY COMPLETED AND CONGRATULATIONS ON A JOB WELL DONE: YOU MAY NOW LOOK FORWARD TO PANDORA; THE GIGAGAME; ALSO BY S:AHMAD".

COMMENTS:

  • Vinny: I know that a few of you will disagree with my rating on this one, but it really hits the spot for me, what with the SUPERB Rob Hubbard tune, and plus it brings back that exhilarating experience of completing the game for the first time. So really, this is quite a personal rating for me and I am happy to display other comments about this ending if you wish to email them to me (webmaster@c64endings.co.uk).

FINAL SAY: I can't help but like it c(",).

G.E. RATING: 7 / 10
