Back in the 80's and 90's I spent most of my pocket money and earnings on budget software - who didn't?! I was well chuffed when I purchased this game for only £2.99 as I am a MASSIVE platform lover and this game was no exception; it played well, looked good and sounded great.

The game also seems to be very popular with the Commodore 64 gaming community. I’ve wanted to hack this game from the moment I loaded it up back in the eighties. It’s not that it’s a difficult game, but more that I wanted to add a little more fun and accessibility to it. After many failed attempts over the past few years to get my code working in the game, I tried one more time and hijacked a small part of the code to fit in my features. To my amazement and delight, it blooming worked! I’m really chuffed with this one and I can now tick it off of my hacking bucket list.

So how about the game ending? ...

The final part of your journey comes to an end ...

... and a naked giant elephant is awaiting your arrival! The End.

HOW WAS IT COMPLETED?: Back in 1991, it took me a few days to complete the game WITHOUT the cheat. Since then, I have completed it near-on every time I have played it. Saying that, I just used the level skip cheat and skipped to the final level, where I played through with infinite lives! WHAT A CHEAT!

UPDATE>> Since adding this ending to the page, I have coded a crazy hack that houses 20 extra in-game features - one of them being jumping straight to the game ending. You can download the crazy hack from the DOWNLOAD area above.

SO WHAT HAPPENS?: After killing the final boss, the screen scrolls to the right and CJ walks to find his family and a MASSIVE NAKED ELEPHANT waiting for him - oo-er! There is a banner that reads, "WELCOME HOME". All the elephants are animated and very pleased to see you - and so they should be!


  • Vinny: It's a cute little ending, but a little let down by the fact that it doesn't have any ending music! WHAT?! I really love Ashley Hogg's work, but for some reason there is no tune (".)

FINAL SAY: Check it out and then move on (".)

G.E. RATING: 6.5 / 10
