> DRUID by Firebird

Completed by Matt Rogers
Reviewed by Vinny Mainolfi

Here's a blast from the past courtesy of team member, Matt Rogers. For some strange reason we had the ending to Druid 2 ages before this ending! Don't ask how.

I remember my neighbour buying the original to this game and coming straight round my house to play it on my machine first. I wasn't really impressed and it took me a few weeks to really get into the game. Unfortunately, we never managed to complete it and so we thank Matt for finally reaching the end of the game ... 

MATT: "Never much of a fan of Druid - I think the novelty of having golem running around with you soon wears off and the sprite to background detection is annoying - great loading screen and title tune, though! God knows what you have to do so I cheated full-bore with the Remember crack and just went everywhere and killed everything - turns out you need to kill four giant fire-spitting skulls. Enjoy!"


Phew! They're dissolving away (",)

All the badness is going ... going ... going ...

... GONE!

The End.

HOW WAS IT COMPLETED? Judging by the spells and energy that Matt seems to have had whilst obtaining the ending, it appears that he is a complete and utter CHEAT! That's my boy (",) Actually, I know that REMEMBER created a cracking training for this game (cheats galore).

SO WHAT HAPPENS?: Once you have completed the final level, the demons appear for the final time but then start to disintegrate along with the castle/dungeon scenery. The Druid finally ends up in an idyllic country surrounding with all the demons and badness gone. The final screen shows a demon's face (in white) with the words, "GAME OVER. YOUR CLASS IS LIGHT MASTER. ENTER YOUR INITIALS."

COMMENTS: It's quite a satisfactory ending. The only downside is the lack of storyline and game ending tune.

FINAL SAY: Give it a go (",)

G.E. RATING: 7 / 10
