I was always a Dan Dare comic fan and still possess
a few copies up in the loft (attic). Saying that, I was
never a fan of the games and didn't really get into them
when they first appeared on the scene. Since then, I have played
both games and enjoyed them - be it with the cheat
So what does the second
Dan Dare outing have on offer as a game ending ...
Flippin ek! What's
going on here! I've just completed the game!
Ah! Cool :)
Off he goes ...
... into the far
corners of the galaxy.
And there you have it.
HOW WAS IT COMPLETED?:
You know me; I am the biggest cheat of them all. I used
a cracked version of the game which offered me the
option of viewing the game ending straight away!
SO WHAT HAPPENS?:
Well, one you have completed the final task, the screen
goes all fuzzy (see first screen shot) and then cuts
into a screen saying, "DAN ESCAPES. HIS MISSION A
The screen then shows
Dan's ship in the foreground whizzing across the screen
from left to right. It then comes back onto the screen
in the background and whizzes back from right to left.
Finally, the scoring
screen appears and it is obviously THE END.
COMMENTS: I was quite surprised to see animation
in this ending and only really expected a screen full of
text. The only real thing lacking, and why this game
gets such a low mark, is any kind of game ending music -
or even sound effects!
Give it a go (",)
to view more endings.
