> CREATURES 2: TORTURE TROUBLE by Thalamus


Completed by Vinny Mainolfi
Reviewed by Frank Gasking

Without a doubt, Creatures 2 is one of the most spectacularly polished releases ever to grace the C64 - thanks to the awesome Rowland brothers. The game was released towards the end  of the C64's commercial life and had to compete hard against the big up and coming consoles; but being the ultimate survivor that it is, the C64 held its own with the able assistance of titles such as this.

So with such a fantastic game, was there room for a fantastic ending?...


Great start - a 'congratulations' screen.


Here he is; Clyde Radcliffe.


Good ol' boy.


OH! He's seen something!


QUICK, CLYDE! RUUUUUUUUUUN!


What's he stopping for?


Now he's running!


AH-HA (",)


The boys are back in town.


GOTCHA!


There' my mate, Andy Roberts (",)


"KILL KILL KILL KILL ..."

HOW WAS IT COMPLETED?: Knowing Vinny (the lazy git), he probably used the level-skip option because he doesn't know his 'arse from his elbow' and when it comes to playing games... Isn't that right Vinny? :-) Hehe ... Only kidding, but he's still a cheater!.. ;-) ("You bloody bet I am! I am the ULTIMATE C64 cheat!!" - Vinny)

SO WHAT HAPPENS?: Once the last torture screen has been completed, the game starts a loading sequence ... which can only mean that we are in for a treat!

Sure enough, after a 'Congratulations' message, you are greeted with a nice beach setting, where Clyde walks onto the screen and thanks you for saving his family (<sarcasm>). Well, you have worked hard after all playing the game properly!! </sarcasm>). BUT little does Clyde's know that there's one big Green baddie he forgot about! With no weapons, Clyde shoots off with the Green monster in hot pursuit.

But our green friend soon has a sudden change of a direction, when Clyde races back with a chainsaw in hand. At this point, the credits begin to display, whilst flicking back to an animated scene. In the next scene, the green monster continues to run, but is confronted by Clyde's family stopping him in his tracks. With Clyde closing in, there's no escape. After another credit display, Clyde's family pin down the monster, and Clyde proceeds to say a final "farewell" to his foe before slicing him up and spilling/spraying blood everywhere. The End!... Nice! :)

All of this is accompanied by some great music again by Steve Rowlands.

COMMENTS: What can I say?... Extra effort has gone into this ending, and you are rewarded with something rather special. There is everything to look forward to when completing this game. You could always ask for more, but really this is a fantastic way to end a game on the ranking of Creatures 2.

FINAL SAY: Satisfyingly gory and a satisfying "completion" feeling.

G.E. RATING: 10 / 10
