> EPSILON IV by Loadstar


• Completed & Reviewed by Neil Collins

Someone give me a good hard slap across the face. I just completed Epsilon IV after hours of gameplay! I thought the aim was to collect all the flashing items (just like in Jet Set Willy), but it seems that all I had to do was find the teleporter. What a waste of four hours...

Apart from all that, Epsilon IV is a great platform game. The sprites and backgrounds are well drawn, the control method is pretty good and the difficulty is set correctly. It's very playable, and now that I know what you have to do - completion without cheats is quite possible.


QUICK! The teleporter!


The End.

HOW WAS IT COMPLETED?: Using an invincibility cheat.

SO WHAT HAPPENS?: After hours of wandering, I found the teleporter. I walked past it many times as I thought it was just a part of the background. Once you enter it and press fire, your little robot dissolves through the teleporter. A screen then pops up saying 'CONGRATULATIONS. YOU HAVE COMPLETED EPSILON 4'. Once you press the fire button the game returns to the main title page and the game is over. 

COMMENTS:

  • Neil: Another decent little game ruined by a poor ending. I will not be returning to Epsilon IV. 1/10.
     
  • Vinny: I've never played this game, but it looks like my kind of thing... apart from the poor ending. 2/10 from me as it also has a small ending ditty.
  • Andy Vaisey: Text ending alert... POOR, POOR, POO...
  • Andrew Fisher: ...we find a fun little game from Loadstar let down by a very average ending.

FINAL SAY: What a shame. The end is bloody terrible.

G.E. RATING: 1.5 / 10
