Now here's a game that didn't quite hit the mark for
me. There's something missing that leaves this short of
being a top-notch shooter, and I just can't work it out.
The graphics and sound seem fine, so maybe it's
something to do with the game play. Yes - that's it: the
game play seems a little slow - as if the screen isn't
scrolling fast enough for the movement of the sprite.
Hmmm... anyway, it's still a good game to play and looks
as if it would have a cool ending...
"FIRE! FIRE! FIRE!
HOW WAS IT COMPLETED?:
I used a cracked version by HOTLINE that allowed me to
skip straight to the ending. Sweet :)
SO WHAT HAPPENS?:
You are presented with a colourful shot of a sunset with
a funnel of smoke rising up from the forest below. A
scrolling message appears and reads: "THE AGE FOR
DRAGONS WAS OVER.. AS A RESULT OF THE FIGHT BETWEEN THE
LAST DRAGON "BAHAMOOT" AND THE YOUNG KING "KAYUS", THE
KING OF THE OLD, "ZAMBAQUOS" VANISHED AGAIN INTO THE
ETERNAL DARKNESS. WITNESSING THIS BATTLE, "ANIMAS", KING
OF WHITE LIGHT, LIFTED "BAHAMOOT" TO THE HEAVENS TO MAKE
HIM A STAR. "ANIMAS" THEN SEVERED EVERY CONNECTION
BETWEEN THE HEAVENS AND MEN TO MAKE THIS EARTH BELONG TO
MANKIND ALONE. "KAYUS", WHO WAS LATER CALLED "THE LAST
DRAGON KING", RULED THIS WORLD FOR TWO HUNDRED YEARS,
AND THEN DIED. AT THAT MOMENT, AS THE LEGEND GOES,
ASHINING DRAGON APPEARED FROM SOMEWHERE TO CARRY HIS
REMAINS UP TO THE HEAVENS. THUS BEGAN THE AGE FOR MEN."
