Here's a game that has spent an AGE in the OFFLINE ARCHIVE, and it was only because @CritAnime requested it via Twitter that I bothered to add it - and what a letdown it is :(

Cylu is one of Firebird Software's early releases and it certainly shows. It's a cross between another Firebird release, Chimera, and a dead hamsters! The game play is the dead hamster. Not only do you have to contend with the awkward controls, but you also have to put up with ZX-81 speed. Shameless.

I did actually complete this game back in the day with help from a few cheats and a map, but on this occasion I was able to hack the ending...


Poo. The End.

HOW WAS IT COMPLETED?: I used a cracked version of the game (by REMEMBER) that allowed me to jump straight to the ending, but you can also do it with an original version by doing the following:

  • Load the game and freeze it using an Action Replay Cart

  • Press 'M' for MONITOR

  • Type: G 8966 (this uses the GO command and goes to mem location: $8966, where the ending is situated).

  • The ending will start.

SO WHAT HAPPENS?: An ending screen appears that reads: "GAME COMPLETE. THE OTSAN CROWN YOU LEADER. THE HURTING IS ABOUT TO BEGIN."

COMMENTS:

  • Vinny: This ending stinks! A little like the game ;-)
  • Gaz Spence: This must rank as one of the worst in the Parthenon of C64 endings.
  • Andrew Fisher: Very poor, white text on a black background is hardly exciting...
  • Andy Vaisey: Rubbish.
  • Brendan Phoenix: The word 'loo' also springs to mind when I see this ending.

FINAL SAY: Don't even bother!

G.E. RATING: 0.5 / 10
