I am a MASSIVE Jon Wells fan and love all of his FANTASTIC Commodore 64 games (",); they are pure class and show Jon's enthusiasm and love for the good old '64.

I have spent ages trying to get hold of this game ending, but unfortunately not long enough to get through the whole game. Fortunately the man HIMSELF, Jon Wells, came to my rescue and supplied the actual ending to place on this site! - THANKS JON (",). So, without further a do, here is the ending ...

Our hero has found his ship ...

... and starts to make his exit. "We have LIFT-OFF" ...

It's official; you have now escaped from Arth!

Our hero's ship sets off for deep space ...

... and the final end message appears - The End.

HOW WAS IT COMPLETED?: You know me; if there's a quick way to the end then I'm going to take it! Thanks to Jon Wells for providing us with the game ending file (",).

I've since hacked the game ending, which can be achieved by doing the following:

  • Load the game and freeze it using an Action Replay Cart

  • Press 'M' for MONITOR

  • Type: G C00D (this uses the GO command and goes to mem location: $C00D, where the ending is situated).

  • The ending will start.

    OR... just soft reset (ALT+R in CCS64 emulator) your C64 and type SYS 49165

SO WHAT HAPPENS?: Our hero finally makes it back to his ship and hops in, which is accompanied by some scrolling words, "Off we gooo!".

The ship starts to fire up and then takes off, at which point another scrolling message appears, which reads, "Hey, neat controls." The ship then darts off to the right of the screen and the final scrolling message says, "Faaar our, man!" A message then appears on the screen, which reads, "CONGRATULATIONS! YOU HAVE MANAGED TO ESCAPE FROM PLANET ARTH. PRESS FIRE". Upon pressing the fire button, a cool piece of FEEKZOID music starts to play and the screen changes to a cool star field where our hero's ship comes into view. The ship darts off into deep space and a final message appears, "YOU HAVE ESCAPED THE DANGER OF PLANET ARTH AND ARE FREE TO FIGHT ANOTHER DAY ... PRESS FIRE!!"

COMMENTS: It's obvious that Jon Wells always does his utmost best to ensure that the game player is treated to a quality ending - this is one of them! This ending is fun to watch and great to listen to, and provides a great close to the game (",).

FINAL SAY: Jon produces yet another quality product for the Commodore 64.

G.E. RATING: 8 / 10
