I'm a lover of the platform genre, and so this game hits the mark for me. Boasting over 100 screens of platforming mayhem, Deviants is a cool, run and gun budget title that was well-worth the asking price of £2.99. Unfortunately, it passed me by back in 1987 - even though I was working in a computer game shop at the time, but I was fortunate enough to stumble on it during a search for my next crazy hack. Not only did I enjoy hacking the game, but I thoroughly enjoy playing through it - even if I was cheating ;-)


The final message hits your screen. The End.

HOW WAS IT COMPLETED?: As you've seen (download link above), I've created a full-blown crazy hack that gives you an additional 24 in-game features - one of them being jumping straight to the game ending. But for budding coders out there, the game ending starts at $6C90.

SO WHAT HAPPENS?: Once you have primed all the remaining timing mechanisms, the ending screen appears, which consists of a message that reads: "GOOD WORK STARWARRIOR, PLANET WILL DESTRUCT IN ONE HOUR. UNFORTUNATELY WE DID NOT MAKE PROVISIONS FOR YOUR ESCAPE."

COMMENTS:

  • Vinny: As much as I love this game, unfortunately it is let down by the lacklustre game ending; no graphics, no animation, no sound, and no point! 1/10 from me.
  • Andy Vaisey: Not played this. Some nicely detailed hires gfx. (Piss) poor ending.
  • Andrew Fisher: Not played this either. Terrible ending.
  • Gaz Spence: Not a bad little arcade adventure but very spectrumy in appearance. The ending is a deviant in all the wrong ways.

FINAL SAY: A flat and lacklustre ending.

G.E. RATING: 1 / 10
