Now here's a strange game if ever there was one!
Focus came to my attention when someone asked me to
create a crazy hack for it. At that point, I'd never
seen or heard of the game - though I kind of remember
seeing magazine adverts for it. I fired up the game and
I was totally memorised by the complete and utter
confusion that was set upon me. What IS this game? What
on EARTH do you have to do? Why the HECK is that spiky
haired gezza? Fortunately, I managed to get an original
copy of the game from eBay and read the instructions...
I was still none the wiser! Needless to say that you are
a photographer and have to go around taking photos of
items, and then going back to base to build one large
image - a bit like a jigsaw. It's kind of fun to play,
but very quirky and annoying at times!
Now you know why I hacked
Once all the pictures
have been collected and compiled...
HOW WAS IT COMPLETED?:
I hacked the ending to this in about 2 minutes. I
spotted the ending text in the code, and I just followed
a route to it. Just jump to location $564D to fire up
SO WHAT HAPPENS?:
Once you have collected and compiled all 16 photos, the
ending kicks in with the message: "YOU SUCCESSFULLY
COPIED 16 PATENTS". This is accompanied by a strange
sound effect. This is then followed by the ending
message, which reads "YOU HAVE DONE IT." This is
accompanied by the game tune and then an evil laugh.
