As I am sure you all know by now, I LOVE platform
games - mainly on the Commodore 64. I can't seem to get
enough of them and so when an opportunity comes along
where I'm sent a game ending of a platform game I've
never played, I'm like a kiddie in a sweetshop!
Unfortunately, on this occasion, the excitement is
short-lived. Don't get me wrong - The Golden Pyramids 2
is a nice enough game with it's clean-cut intro, music
and graphics... it's just that the gameplay is a little
taxing - especially controlling the main character. Plus
- with the version I have there doesn't seem to be any
instructions and so I'm not quite sure what to do -
which may be part of the problem.
Saying all that - it's
worth checking out and playing it for yourself. And if
you do work out how to go from level to level, then
please let me know!
HOW WAS IT COMPLETED?:
Brenda was a little cheat and used a trained version
that allowed him to skip straight to the end!
SO WHAT HAPPENS?:
Once the final level is complete, the ending screen
appears, which is a lovely sunset bitmap with the word "CONGRATULATIONS!"
On tapping the spacebar, the screen then changes to
another bitmap with the epilogue. This is all
accompanied by an ending tune.
