So here's the thing... before adding this game
ending to C64endings, I added
which is another game by the same team - or at least Roy
Fielding worked on both. Now I'd seen
Hektic 2 before,
but never Hektic 1, and it appears that Hektic 1 has
very similar game play to
but with different style graphics. I bet your as
confused as I am (",)...
Hektic is a well presented
arcade platform game that is as tough as old boots. With
crisp sprites, cleanly drawn scenery, and a well paced
tunes, Hektic is certainly a game with that 'just one
more go' appeal to it - but you do have to persist past
the frustration. I personally prefer
Hektic 2 with its
static screens, but this game is still worthy of a play
Oh - and before I
forget... don't do what I did and pump up the volume and
then not realise that there is some cool digitised
speech in the bonus stage; it scared me shitless!
You finally reach the
end of level 4...
Oh - what's going on
Ah - an epilogue...
Now Sentence is
DEFINITELY a tough game!!
Take a bow guys.
HOW WAS IT COMPLETED?:
Looking at the ending file that Gaz sent me, he cheats
all the way to the end!
SO WHAT HAPPENS?:
Once you have reached the end of level 4, the ending
kicks in with Hektic banners bounding from left to
right, a specific ending tune, and the epilogue, which
reads: "Well done, you have completed all 4 levels of
Hektic!!! The sun is shining, the birds are
singing, the fair maiden has been rescued, etc... etc...
Thought it was easy huh???? Well, get your hands on
'Sentence' by ltvm. software and see how good you really
are!!" It then finishes with the copyright and an
instruction to press RUN-STOP.
