It isn't often that I get excited and surprised
to see a game ending that I thought would never see the
light of day - especially when it's a game that I
thought could NEVER be completed! Well it seems that one
of our regular contributors, Inge H. Pendersen, has sent
me one of those rare game endings.
Hero of the Golden
Talisman was one of Mastertronic Added Dimension's early
releases, along with
The Last V8 and
of Magic. It's an arcade adventure game very much in
the style of
Impossible Mission, but with a little less style and
panache. It was still worthy of a few accolades -
especially at the price of £2.99 - and proved to be a
tough challenge to complete.
Ladies and Gentlemen, we
present the ending to Hero of the Golden Talisman...
Here's a nice animated
piece of the end sequence. The End.
HOW WAS IT COMPLETED?
Inge told us that he used a number of cheats to get
through this one - I don't blame him. Even with cheats I
struggle to get passed the first few screens!
SO WHAT HAPPENS?

final screen, you exit the pyramid and your final score
Then, the pieces you have
collected assemble themselves in the sky above the
pyramid. The message, "YOU ARE FREE FROM THE EVIL ..."
appears and the sky starts to turn blue. The final
message reads, "YOUR CITY IS SAVED...". This
sequence is accompanied by a few spot sound effects.
I was quite amazed to see that someone had completed
this game - I had always thought that it couldn't be
It isn't one of Shaun Southern's finest, but
it deserves a look. It could have done with an ending
tune, but at least the storyline has an ending.
FINAL SAY: Another
one laid to rest (",)
to view more endings.
