> HAWKEYE by Thalamus


Completed by Matt Rogers
• Reviewed by Vinny Mainolfi

Thalamus had a reputation for producing clean-cut, quality software, and Hawkeye was no exception; it oozed quality in game play, graphics and sound. Though I am a little suspect when ZZAP!64 magazine, owned by the same company as Thalamus, gives this game an overall score of 96%! It's not THAT good! Still - it's worthy of a good score and a few plays.

Thankfully Matt Rogers had the patience to play through the game to obtain the following game ending...


"GIVE THIS MAN A ..."


"... CIGAR"


Whoooooosh! Here comes the ending ...


Our hero can now afford to pay for a colour license.


He raises his arms to the sky and gets hit by a bolt of lightening.


Finally! Colour :-)


And now for a camp posture. The End.

HOW WAS IT COMPLETED?: I'm not quite sure how Matt completed this one, though there is a version or two that allows you to play through with the cheat ;-)

SO WHAT HAPPENS?: After completing the final task, a screen displaying 'WARPING TO THE END' appears. A few seconds later our hero appears in black & white under some arching arms.

He raises his arms and a bolt of lightning strikes him, giving him colour! He then places his hands on his hips - oo-missus.

A cracking end tune from Jeroen Tel pounds in the background, adding great effect to the whole ending.

COMMENTS:

  • Vinny: I kind of expected this game to have a cool ending and I was glad not to be let down; it is quite classy but unfortunately lasts for only a few seconds. Saying that, the tune carries on thumping away :-)

FINAL SAY : It's worth a few looks (",)

G.E. RATING: 8 / 10
