Grayhawk is another or Alf Yngve's SEUCK games that
has been cranked up a notch by the talented Commodore 64
coder, Richard Bayliss. Created as a tribute to
Firebird's Warhawk, Grayhawk has you battling it
out against an alien empire planning to destroy the
entire galaxy. Grayhawk ships are sent to various
hostile planets to wipe out the evil aliens, and blast
through the perilous planets destroying the entire fleet
of the alien empire.
The game is a typical
Yngve/Bayliss production, which is always a delight to
see, but there are no surprises here... clean graphics
that are professionally implemented, along with the
crisp sonics wrapping it all togther into a neat but
predictable SEUCK package. Still worth a look...
HOW WAS IT COMPLETED?:
I cheated of course! You can either play through the
game by turning all the sprite collision off using an
Action Replay Cartridge, OR you can freeze the game, go
into MONITOR mode and type "G 68C3", which will dirty
jump you to the ending location $68C3. Simples.
SO WHAT HAPPENS?:
Once you have reached the end of the final stage, the ending kicks in with a message that
reads: "CONGRATULATIONS. YOUR HAVE DESTROYED ALL
OF THE HOSTILE ALIEN PLANETS AND FINALLY PUT A STOP TO
THE THREAT OF DESTRUCTION TO THE SOLAR SYSTEM. WE SHALL
LIVE ON FOR ANOTHER DAY!" This is accompanied
by a thumping Bayliss track.
