I had NEVER heard of this game until I stumbled upon
it on Gamebase 64. It's not really my type of game and I
was only really interested in seeing the game ending
because the actual game graphics looked really cool. So, armed with my trusty
"view end sequence NOW" version of the game I went
STRAIGHT to the end sequence (",)
"NEVER under estimate the power of the force!"
"You are my son". The End.
HOW WAS IT COMPLETED?:
WHAT HAPPENS?: The screen opens with a SUPERBLY
drawn picture of Darth Vader (obviously one of the
in-game characters) and some clearly defined music.
Credits then start to scroll up and present the story
ending in words. The scrolling credits finally end
leaving the music to continue on for a few more minutes.
final scrolling message (ripped straight from the game's
code) reads: WELL DONE!! IT IS HARD TO BELIEVE- YOU
HAVE FINALLY MADE IT TO BECOME A MEMBER OF THE HIGH
CLUB. YOU HAVE QUICKLY TRAVELLED TO CELLUX, WHERE YOU
ARE AWARDED YOUR OFFICIAL TITLE AT THE CONFERENCE ROOM
OF THE STATION. AFTER SOME AMAZINGLY SHORT HOURS, THE
CEREMONY HAS ENDED. MOST MEMBERS START TO EXCHANGE
EXPERIENCES, YOU TALK TO A LOT OF IMPRESSIVE PERSONS,
BUT SUDDENLY, A SERVANT BREAKS INTO THE ROOM:'WAR!!' HIS
SHOUT LETS THE VOICES DIE AWAY. SILENCE. 'HE HAS DONE
IT! HIS WARNINGS WEREN'T FAKE! JAMESON HAS TAKEN ALL HIS
SQUADROONS AND ATTACKS ALL COLONIES!' 'JAMESON.' SAYS
THE SPEAKER IN A LOW VOICE 'THAT BASTARD IS BACK 'THE
SPEAKER ANNOUNCES: 'WE MUST STOP HIM -RETURN TO YOUR
BASE IMMEDIATELY (...)'ALL THE MEMBERS RUN IN PANIC TO
THEIR SHIPS, AND START TO FLY BACK TO THEIR HOME
STATIONS. WHEN YOU ARRIVE BACK AT ANTARES, YOU CAN ONLY
WATCH THE EXPLOSIONS ON THE BURSTING STATION. IN THE
DEPTHS OF YOUR SOUL YOU SWEAR TO TAKE REVENGE FOR ALL
THOSE POOR CIVILISTS THAT WERE KILLED - ON ANTARES AND
EVERY- WHERE ELSE...COLONIAL TRADER ! ..A VISLOGIC GAME

COMMENTS: This is a very clear and effective game
ending which looks and sounds great. I really enjoyed
the music which continued passed the scrolling credits
and the atmosphere it promoted was vitalising. The
programmer (Maxim Szenessey has really thought this one
through and produced a nice ending.
SAY: Definitely one to see (",)
