The Rowland Brothers (Steve & John) have certainly built up a reputation for programming pure class. Games such as Mayhem in Monsterland, Cyberdyne Warrior and of course Creatures 1 & 2, have graced our screens from the mid 80s to this present day.

But what of the game endings they have produced? Are they in the same class as the rest of the game? Did the brothers take time and effort to produce a sparkle of magic for the end sequence to Creatures? YOU BET THEY DID (",) ... THIS ONE YOU'VE GOT TO SEE ...

Here is the final torture screen.

A superb WELL DONE screen (",)

And now the story line ending.

To celebrate the end, Clyde and his mates decide to go on a pub crawl ...

Hmmm ... that's a small pub!

Clyde seems to have pulled. The End.

HOW WAS IT COMPLETED?: I actually completed this version of the game with all the in-game cheats, but when the game was originally released, I completed it without any cheats (there's a first!).

SO WHAT HAPPENS?: I'm not too sure that I want to spoil this by explaining the whole ending. Let's just say that there is plenty of great music, super graphics and a whole host of animation :)

COMMENTS: This game ending is a pure delight, and really sums up the programming expertise of both Steve and John. It looks good; it sounds good, and it certainly feels good.

FINAL SAY: If you loved the game, then you are going to LOVE the ending.

G.E. RATING: 10 / 10
