> DELIVERANCE by The Power House

• Completed & Reviewed by Neil Collins

Deliverance by Power House is a poor horizontally scrolling platform game programmed by Andy Jervis. The scenario is pretty ropey too. You control one of a pair of robots, called Jim or Bob (nice robot names), and your mission is to rescue a princess. Why? I don't know. She's probably got into bother of some sorts, and who (or what) else would go to her rescue? Yes - a robot, called either Jim or Bob. The game is very poor. The screen constantly scrolls, and you have to guide your robot over the oncoming obstacles and avoid the enemies. I played it for a few minutes and thought that I'd cheat to see if there was anything at the end of this terrible game...

Zzzzzz... The End.

HOW WAS IT COMPLETED?: I used a level skip cheat.

SO WHAT HAPPENS?: At the end of the final level you get to see the princess walk across the screen to greet the robot. There's no 'WELL DONE' message or anything else to indicate that you have completed the game. It's all a bit boring.


  • Neil: There's a small bit of animation, but nothing else. It's a very boring end to a crappy little game.

  • Vinny: Hmmm... it looks to me as if Neil used a cracked version, hence the message on the ending screen: "VOTE BASSLINE". I'm guessing that the original version of the game says something like "WELL DONE". It reminds me of the Ghost n Goblins ending with no real meat to it. Considering the game is cack, you'd expect there to be no ending at all and so 3/10 is an acceptable mark :) BTW - I love the way the Princess looks as if she is being pulled along on a trolley ;-)

  • Andrew Fisher: I don't think I have any Power House games in my collection, their consistently low review scores put me off.

    Very ordinary ending to a below-par game.

  • Brendan Phoenix: How many endings have the princess coming to met you after you rescue her - jeez. Borrrrring!

    I used to have The Equaliser until I lent it to a mate and never got it back - didn't you hate it when that happened. I think the game was then pulled from shelves due it it being a complete copy of Wonder Boy.

  • Andy Vaisey: Yucky game tacked on the front of a yucky ending. Avoid...

FINAL SAY: Is that the princess ? She doesn't look very grateful to me.

G.E. RATING: 3 / 10
