Reviewed by Vinny Mainolfi

If you've been fortunate enough to have played the original Fred's Back game then you'll know EXACTLY what to expect with the second instalment...

Nothing much has changed since Fred's first adventure: it's still set in a colourful world of platforms and sprites. In fact, it's obvious that the coders have used exactly the same game ending and just slightly tweaked the graphics and sound. It's a good thing on one way because the original game was a lot of fun, and so really this is just an extension. It's just a pity that the game ending is virtually the same as the previous game... give or take a few words and an ending tune...


Fred has reached the end...


What on EARTH is 'SUUUUPIEY'?


Again - this is the same!


What... and then it's EXACTLY the same ending?


The End.

HOW WAS IT COMPLETED?: Gaz cheated all the way to the end ;-)

SO WHAT HAPPENS?: As per the first installment, once Fred reaches the end, the screen starts to scroll to the left, an ending tune kicks in, and the ending message reads: "SUUUUUUUPIEY-FRED! YOU SOLVED IT ONCE MORE! AGAIN WE HOPE YOU HAD FUN PLAYING OUR GAME AND ...MAYBE FRED WILL RETURN AGAIN IN FRED'S BACK III. JESUS IS LORD!!"

COMMENTS:

  • Vinny: I game the first Fred's Back game ending 4/10... but do I give this the same score because it's the same ending, or do I make it down because the coders haven't brought anything new to the table? I'll go for the latter and give it 3/10.
  • Andrew Fisher: With one or two minor niggles, the Fred's Back games are good fun to play.

    Looks like the whole game re-uses a lot from the original, including the ending.

FINAL SAY: Time for a different ending for Fred's Back III, please!

G.E. RATING: 3 / 10
