> HELLHOLE by CRL


• Completed & Reviewed by Neil Collins

How do they get away with it? This game is Hawkeye, but with slightly different graphics. The main character looks like Arnie, and has been ripped out of Predator - and one of the alien sprites is the same as the main character from Hawkeye ! I hope Thalamus got a few quid from CRL for this blatant clone.


Our hero reaches his final destination.


The End.

HOW WAS IT COMPLETED?: Using a trainer version with infinite lives.

SO WHAT HAPPENS?: I blasted my way through the tedious levels to find the final end of level boss. Once he was sorted out, I exited the screen on the right hand side. A short message saying 'Heavy Blasting Warrior. Congratulations' was then displayed on the screen before the game went to the high score table. I entered the word 'Thalamus', and then turned the crap off.

COMMENTS:

  • Neil: Shoddy game with an ending to match. Play Hawkeye - it's far better in every single aspect.
     
  • Vinny: Hmmm... I think this game is okay. It's nowhere near as good as Hawkeye, but then again, I wouldn't have made the comparison if Neil hadn't mentioned it. 1/10.

    As for the ending... what a pile of cack! The ingame graphics are nice enough and could have been extended to the ending - there's enough spare memory for it! 0.5/10 from me.
  • Andrew Fisher: Don't remember ZZAP reviewing this and the Commodore Format review wasn't very complementary. I've only played it briefly, and it didn't strike as being very good. And yet another text ending - so bad.
  • Andy Vaisey: A bad clone with a bad ending.
  • Brendan Phoenix: Never heard of this one - if it was not reviewed in Zzap, was a good chance I would never have heard or seen of the game.

    From the ending, I am not missing much.
  • Gaz Spence: If Hellhole was CRL's last game, which I believe to be the case, then its ending is a fitting final nail in the coffin of a publisher that clearly didn't know the term quality assurance.

FINAL SAY: Why does this game exist ? I feel sorry for those who bought it.

G.E. RATING: 1 / 10
