Way back in the 90s I read the review of this game AND I was also given an original copy by my friend who didn't seem to like the game. Because of his lack of enthusiasm, I left the game to stew for 15 years and only decided to play it when Frank Gasking mentioned the game ending.

Was it worth the 15 year wait? ...

Our hero gets to rescue his true love, Julie.

A cross-cut effect takes you to ...

... The End.

HOW WAS IT COMPLETED?: I CHEATED! Yep, hard to believe, but I did cheat ;) Actually, I used a level-skip cheat and still had to play through the final level to get the complete end sequence. It was tough, but someone had to do it.

SO WHAT HAPPENS?: Nothing much really ... once you have defeated the final bad guy, our hero runs into his lovers arms; the screen has a cross-cut effect and then the final screen appears (see above screen shot).

Unfortunately, the game ending sonix are non-exist and Jonathan Dunn's musical talents were not called upon to provide some ending atmosphere.

COMMENTS: As game endings go, it isn't going to win any awards: it's quick and simple.

FINAL SAY: Take a peek and then take a pee (".)

G.E. RATING: 4 / 10
