Having completed Frostbyte by MikroGen, I
remembered that there was a similar game by the same
company that I used to play. A quick search on
the net revealed that it was Equinox. The graphics and game play are very similar in style to Frostbyte. This
time around you control a spherical droid around 8
levels, seeking out and disposing of the radioactive
canisters that prevent human inhabitation of the
asteroid on which they lie. There are many items to
collect in the game which include: keys, drills, spades,
dynamite, teleport passes and lift passes - all of which
aid progress through the eight levels. There are aliens
to blast and obstacles to destroy on the way which make
this a tricky puzzle / action game.
The final task.
All the canisters
have been disposed of.
HOW WAS IT COMPLETED?:
Using an infinite lives, energy & time cheat.
SO WHAT HAPPENS?:
Once you have disposed of the eighth canister you are
shown a picture of a vault where all eight canisters are
displayed on two shelves. Following that is a screen
which says 'WELL
DONE. ALL CANISTERS DISPOSED OF. THE COMPLEX IS NOW FIT
FOR HUMAN HABITATION'.
You are then prompted to press a key and the game
returns to the main menu. Game over.
