I stumbled on this game by complete accident... I
was going through a load of games on the offline version
of Gamebase 64 and came upon a game preview called
Denniffia by a coder called Michal Bacik. The game
looked really cool and so I clicked on the coder's name
to see if he had produced any other cool looking games,
and it appears that he had! The strange thing is, these
games don't appear in the main game list and can only be
viewed via the coder's name. Anyway - one of Michal's
game really stood out for you, which was Magic
Magical Formula is a
beautifully crafted static-screen platformer that is a
delight to play. You play the part of the love deprived
snail(!) Sonny who is in search of his beloved Dawny.
Sonny has to fight his way through 24 levels of
obstacles and nasties to find all the magical items, and
give them to Wizard who will reunite them once more.
With colour full screens, detailed sprites, and crisp
sonix, does this game have a magic formula of an ending?
(see what I did there?)...

Kicked their asses!
Totaling up the
HOW WAS IT COMPLETED?:
I used cracked version that allowed me to skip straight
to the end! Obviously!
SO WHAT HAPPENS?:
Once you clean level 24, the words "WELL DONE"
appear on the screen and then the scores are totted up
before the ending loads...
The ending screen
appears with a bitmap saying "THE END", along with the
message: "CONGRATULATIONS. NOW YOU CAN BE TOGETHER
FOREVER!". This is accompanied by a specific ending
tune whilst Sonny and Dawny are reunited in love at the
foot of the screen.

I remember playing this back then and not persevering
more than a couple of levels. I like the ending though.
- Andy Vaisey:
That's a nice little ending! Simple, short but
satisfying. Wish more were like that...
cute, but simple ending.
