• Completed & Reviewed by Neil Collins

Exolon from Hewson. This was a popular game back in the days of the C64. I remember playing it quite a lot - but I soon grew tired and never returned to it as I found it very frustrating. You control some spaceman type bloke, armed with a gun and some rockets. You have to make your way to the right, through 124 screens, blasting everything that attacks and destroying all the instalments that block your progress.


Final score on the doors.


The End.

HOW WAS IT COMPLETED?: Using an infinite lives cheat. (Vinny: I have created a crazy trainer hack for this game so that you can easily view the ending as well as skipping levels, infinite lives, infinite grenades and infinite ammo. Download it from here.)

SO WHAT HAPPENS?: Once you reach the 124th screen, you have to make your way to the final teleporter - which causes the game to end. Your bonus is totalled up before a congratulations message appears. It says that you have proven your combat abilities to the full, before returning to the main menu once you press the fire button.

COMMENTS:

  • Neil: Naff. What a waste of my precious time.

  • Vinny: I love playing this game and I am sad to see that it has such a poor ending :( I kind of expected it really.

  • Andrew Fisher: It's not a bad game, just too tough and repetitive. I did complete it once with an infinite lives cheat, so knew what a letdown the ending was...

  • Brendan Phoenix: Pants ending. Hewson used to do some good games (early on) in their C64 days - then went a bit shi##y. Don't think I have seen many good Hewson (or Hewson Consultants as they were known) endings.

  • Andy Vaisey: My thesaurus and I are slowly running out of words that mean rubbish...

  • Gaz Spence: I thought this one didn't end so this is a surprise to me. Unfortunately the ending is in keeping with most of Hewson's other games, i.e. s*ite.

FINAL SAY: Not much to say here. This one is very poor. Avoid it.

G.E. RATING: 1 / 10
