Owning and running C64endings.co.uk puts me in a
very privileged position. Not only do I get to replay
old, favourite Commodore 64 games, but I also get to
explore games that I've never heard off - which most
times is a real delight.
In this particular case, I
get to play the brain-logic, puzzle game Magazine
produced by CP Verlag, which is similar to block-pushing
games such as Pengo and Percy Penguin. It's the simple
logic of pushing blocks together to more onto the next
level. I'm guessing that the block in this case are
blocks of ice as it looks like the main character is
pulling/pushing them along with ice-hooks. As for the
name of the game... it's anyone's guess! As with many of
the CP Verlag releases, Magazine is a polished game and
well worth a play or two.
All in all, a great little
brain-logic game with 30 levels to master... which takes
us neatly on to the ending...
Level 6 is finally
HOW WAS IT COMPLETED?:
Gaz just used a cracked version of the game with
trainers (the cheating type).
SO WHAT HAPPENS?:
Once you push the final blocks together on level 30, the
ending screen appears with a closing message, which
reads: "CONGRATULATIONS, YOU WON THE GAME." This is
accompanied by all the game codes and a special cheat
code for infinite lives.
