> GRIBBLY'S DAY OUT by Hewson


Completed by Ste Re
• Reviewed by Vinny Mainolfi

Nineteen eighty-five was a glorious year: Back to the Future starring Michael J. Fox and Christopher Lloyd; Band Aid live at Wembley Stadium; Dennis Taylor beating Steve Davis to become the World Embassy Snooker Champion, and finally a whole host of fantastic gaming releases for the Commodore 64. Not to be left out, Gribbly's Day Out from Hewson hit the shelves and certainly made an impact on the gaming community.

Even though the game appeared to be totally frustrating and very difficult to play, it still managed to hold its own and stay secure in the hearts of most Commodore 64 gaming freaks. So with such a difficult game to beat - did anyone ever manage to complete it? ...


Gribbly save the final Gribblet and teleports out.


Thanks for that [yawns].


The ending message.


The End.

HOW WAS IT COMPLETED?: I know that Ste Re used a cheat to complete this game. (Vinny: I have since created a crazy hack that allows you to skip to the ending, as well as giving you a whole host of other features and cheats)

SO WHAT HAPPENS?: I'm really not going to waste too much time on explaining this one. There really isn't much to say or see (check out the above screenshots).

COMMENTS:

  • Vinny: The game is pure quality, but the ending is pure cack :(
  • Andy Vaisey: Never really played this one, but always heard good things about it.

    Don't have time to play it properly right now, so these awesome trainers should help me a treat. Shame (but no surprises) about the lack-lustre Braybrook ending. What was it with that guy? Cracking games but rubbish endings.

FINAL SAY: Don't even bother :(

G.E. RATING: 1 / 10
