I had never heard of this game until I went through my long list of endings. Also, I didn't actually play through it to obtain the game ending; I just used a cracked version of the game and selected the "view game ending" option (",) But I have since had a play, and it's a fun little game - even though ZZAP!64 scored it 59%! Still - I have a soft-spot for The Power Houses games as they do project a sense of innocence :)

So without knowing much about the game, here is the game ending ...

"Come on ... let's get to the ship"

"Up, up and AWAAAAAY"

Hmmmm ... who the heck is this?

Ah! That all important message (",)

HOW WAS IT COMPLETED? CHEATED! I also created the following ending hack:

  • Load and start the game

  • Freeze it using an Action Replay Cart

  • Press 'M' for MONITOR

  • Type: G 997B (this uses the GO command and goes to mem location: $997B, where the ending is situated).

  • The ending will start.

  • If you fancy shortening the ending by selecting the amount of men that run to the ship in pairs, then just enter: POKE 39569,1 (changes it from 5 pairs to 1 pair).

SO WHAT HAPPENS? The game ending consists of a bunch of spacemen running towards a ship that is ready to take off. Once all the men are inside, the ship (see picture 2 above) takes off and disappears off the screen. All of a sudden, another smaller ship goes flying by - god knows who this is - and disappears off to the right of the screen. Finally, the "WELL DONE!" screen appears to acknowledge that the whole game is complete.


  • Vinny: I enjoyed this little ending and was pleased to see that the programmer, Richard Palmer, had taken some time in creating an enjoyable ending. The only thing missing is a thumping, satisfying piece of music to create that all important game ending atmosphere.

FINAL SAY: It is certainly worth a look (",)

G.E. RATING: 7 / 10
