> COSMIC CAUSEWAY: Trailblazer 2 by Gremlin Graphics

Reviewed by Vinny Mainolfi

Gremlin Graphics really did know how to produce some great games: Thing on a Spring (the best), Monty on the run, Bounder, Jack the Nipper, and many, many more. Saying that, this game was developed by the great Shaun Southern who also created Kikstart 1 & 2,  Trailblazer, Hero of the Golden Talisman, Hummdinger, and a whole host of other C64 greats. So with such a high calibre of work, was Shaun able to produce a top-notch ending?

The final level is complete...

...and the score or added.

The End... well nearly.

The End.

HOW WAS IT COMPLETED?: I'm not sure how this was completed as it has been sitting on my system for a very long time and so I am unsure of its origination. I think it's one that Frank sent to me as a job lot (some that he found on his system!).

SO WHAT HAPPENS?: The ball slows down after completing its final journey and bonus points are awarded. The message, 'Congratulations' appears in the bottom-right of the screen and an ending tune (by Shaun) kicks in. The tune ends and the words, 'THE END' are displayed on the screen. The game ending then flicks over to the 'name entry' screen, showing your rating as MEGABLAZER.

COMMENTS: I didn't think that this game would have any kind of ending and that it would just loop back to the beginning, but with a fast pace.

It's refreshing to see the ending and also hear an ending tune by Shaun Southern.

FINAL SAY: It's worth a quick look and listen.

G.E. RATING: 5 / 10
