OMG! I'd completely forgotten about this game and I remember why: it was too bloody hard! I remember spending HOURS trying to complete the first bloody screen only to get hit by the spiders, or fall off the ropes, or just fall off the final ledge when you get to the other side! I'm going to have to revisit this one as I have never really managed to play through it.

Anyway - fortunately, Inge was able to hack this toughie and allow us to see the 'ending'...

"Fancy meeting you down this cold, dark alley!"

"Have a rotten Polo mint"

'Thinks!' what does he bloody 'thinks'?!

Time for a bit of juvenile fun :)

The End.

HOW WAS IT COMPLETED?: Inge used a combination of infinite lives and sprite-collision cheats.

SO WHAT HAPPENS?: Once you complete the final level, you are shown standing in a cave with some kind of strange prehistoric animal in your way. All of a sudden, a while falls down and knocks out the animal. Out hero is then shown saying "THINKS!", which looks like a speech-bubble and not a think-bubble.


  • Inge: An old, hard game. I've used a combination of infinite lives and sprite-collision hack.

    The ending is rather silly. Was there some prize for completing the game?
  • Vinny: It's an okay ending, but as Inge said, it's kind of silly. Maybe the programmer thought it was funny - I can't see it. And as for typing in your details... not sure what that's about. Maybe, as Inge said, there was a competition to win something if you completed the game. Unfortunately, the ending just crashes after the final input :( 4/10 from me.
  • Brendan Phoenix: Would love to see what you would have received back The Edge - probably never know (same with The President is Missing, Sorcery, etc, etc).

    Hard to judge the ending because of that, all we really have is a request for your details/ A pity a 'true ending' could not have been inputted.

FINAL SAY: Okay-ish, but silly.

G.E. RATING: 4 / 10
