Hobgoblin is crap; It's worse than Rygar. I warn you
never to play this game. It's so frustrating (even with
cheats), it will make you self harm! The control method
is ropey, the game play is repetitive, beyond belief and
the enemies appear from nowhere to kill you, sending you
back a few screens. Keep your sanity and play something
The final screen.
HOW WAS IT COMPLETED?:
Using an infinite lives cheat.
- Vinny: I
completed it by hacking the game code and building a
full crazy hack with 25 extra game features, including
one that takes you straight to the game ending. The
crazy hack is available in the download section above.
SO WHAT HAPPENS?:
After about twenty minutes of awful gameplay, I stumbled
upon an orb. Once approached, the game ends, with the
message 'CONGRATULATIONS! YOU HAVE RECOVERED THE
GOLDEN ORB! ALTORIS IS SAFE!'. Pressing the fire
button takes you to the high score table. I entered the
word 'Horsesh*t'. The game then reset to the title page.
