If ever there was a game that looked and played like
Monty on the Run, then Chubby Gristle is that
game. Saying that, it's still a fantastic game to play
and definitely a game that appears in my all time C64
Top 20 games. With cracking in-game music by the great
Ben Daglish, this game is prince amongst platformers.
Fancy seeing the game
ending, which was kindly sent in my Brendan? ...
Chubby takes the Missus
to the pub.
Huh! What's going on
here then? The End.
HOW WAS IT COMPLETED?
Well, Brendan didn't mention how he complete the
game, but when I investigated the actual game code, I
noticed an option to have infinite lives :)
SO WHAT HAPPENS?:
Once the final task is complete, Chubby and his wife
make a dash for the pub ... or is it their house?
Anyway, they go inside and the game ending message
scolls at the foot of the screen; it reads, "...and
so... Chubby Gristle lived happily ever after with his
wife Fatima in the land of Gristledom. They lived in
great abundance off the fat of the land, with all their
half tonners." At this point, a load of Chubby
people come dashing out of the building.
There's a game ending tune
that was created by Ben (he's a nice guy) Daglish.
meaning to cause any fights, but Brendan wanted to give
this game ending a 5 out of 10. Personally, I think this
deserves at least a 7 because it's cute; it has a great
little ending tune; it tells the final story, and it has
a bit of animation. Quality.
Would have to say an ok
little end screen - new tune, little animation and
message. Nothing spectacular but does the job.
I love it (",)
to view more endings.
