I haven't played this corker of a game since way
back in 1985 - 22 years ago! It's still fun to play and
certainly deserved all the credit and adulation that it
received back then.
Thanks to Matt Rogers we
can all see what actually happens at the end of the game
'KILL THE MUVVA'
'DIE DIE DIE!'
'Ahhh! Come on!'
'Who the heck is THIS?'
Here's a nice animated
piece. The End.
HOW WAS IT COMPLETED?
"Okedoke. This is one I always wanted to complete. I
managed to get to the final dragon without cheating, but
it was ridiculously hard, so I relented and used Zzap's
unlimited everything pokes."
SO WHAT HAPPENS?
Once you've shot at the dragon a few hundred times
("well it felt like that at the time!"), the dragon dies
and a man in a black suit flies onto the screen and
reveals an egg in the palm of his hand! The egg hatches
and a small, cute dragon appears; it smiles and then
says, "The End."
Vinny: I was
quite surprised to see this type of ending: cute, with
animation and humour. I was expecting something boring
like, 'WELL DONE', but who knows what the programmers
were thinking when they decided to opt for this ending.
Moon: The guy at the end of The Eidolon is Dr.
Agon, the one who built the machine and who's been
missing. It's all in the
Anyway, it's worth a look,
but could have done with an ending tune.
FINAL SAY, MATT:
to view more endings.
