• Completed & Reviewed by Neil Collins

Deliverance - Stormlord II, is the follow up to the original Stormlord game by Hewson. The original game didn't have an ending to it, so I thought I'd find out if the sequel did. This game differs from the original in the sense that it's more a horizontally scrolling shooter, rather than the puzzle based original. I think this one is better all round. The graphics are better, there's more action and it's less frustrating. There are three levels to beat. All you have to do is make your way to the end of the last level by blasting the hordes of enemies on the way, using many different weapons that you can collect on your travels. You can also collect these nude angel-like characters on the way which give you bonus points at the end of the levels.

Our hero has finally completed his quest...

The End.

HOW WAS IT COMPLETED?: I used an infinite lives cheat.

SO WHAT HAPPENS?: At the end of level three you reach some gates with an old man outside. Whether this is supposed to be heaven, I don't know. When you approach the guy, the angels that you collected fly free into the air as your score is calculated. The words 'Game Over' appear and the game ends.


  • Neil: The graphics are nice but this ending needed a bit more effort and maybe an explanation. It's not bad though.

  • Vinny: I'm a big fan of Nick Jones (the programmer of this game), but I'm with Neil on this one; I too needed an explanation as to what the ending was all about, and so an epilogue wouldn't have gone a miss. Also, I am a massive fan of Matt Gray's work, but the ending tune does sound a little lacklustre :( 

  • Andrew Fisher: Any game with naked fairies in it gets my vote (to paraphrase Phil King's reviews of the two Stormlord games)... except, I never really enjoyed them. The difficulty level was just too high, although both games were well presented.

    A very humdrum ending this, 3/10.

  • Brendan Phoenix: Considering this is a Hewson game, the ending is worthy of a Gold Medal! They must have the worst track record of producing rubbish (or no) endings. This is at least of a poor standard, rather than their usual tripe.

  • Gaz Spence: I've actually written a review for this on Lemon64. As I said in that, the game has a number of interesting ideas and graphics but is overly difficult. The final screen brings some closure to the game, but still disappoints.

FINAL SAY: Not sure about this one.

G.E. RATING: 3 / 10
