We all know that whatever the Rowland Brothers create for the Commodore 64, it's sure to be a quality gaming experience. Mayhem in Monsterland is no exception to that rule, and take the Commodore 64 on an exciting journey of fantastic graphics and enjoyable sonix. Commodore Format magazine were crazy enough to give this game a perfect overall score of 100% (the fools!).

We all know that Mayhem in Monsterland ROCKS! But what of the game ending; is it in the same league as the actual game? Lets find out ...

Ah! The "Game Complete" message. It doesn't end there ...

Here's your chance to view the whole of the games map.
Plus; you get to read the credits :-)

The Master Himself.

Good old Andy :-)

The End.

Ahhhhh... bless :)

The End.

HOW WAS IT COMPLETED?: I'm not too sure how Tobias completed it, but I know that I used a trainer that housed all the cheats to get me through the game :)

SO WHAT HAPPENS?: Once you have completed the final level, you are taken through a journey of game credits and miniature versions of all the levels. This is accompanied by an ending tune created by Steve Rowlands.


  • Vinny: It pains me to say this, but it isn't a fantastic ending - not like Creatures 1 & 2 - but it is certainly worth a look. Saying that, I do like the effect of being able to see the whole game's map, which is scrolled at the top and bottom of the screen. Nice graphics and great music go to make this pleasing game ending from the Rowland Brothers (John & Steve).

  • Andrew Fisher: I think it's worth a 9 - the little walking creature animations match the intro, and the scrolling landscapes are fantastic.

  • Brendan Phoenix: 'Congratulations - Game Complete' is a bit poor, but nice pic of the big dinosaur at the end with ' The End ' and the tune is pretty cool / nice scrolling credits 8/10 for me.

  • Matt Rogers: What always got me is that they clearly spent a lot of time on that end, but for what? It's nice to see the mini maps, but I always felt they could have spent their time creating something interesting. It's still a great end - considering the effort - but it could have been awesome.

  • Frank Gasking: Shoot me, but I actually think this is worth a Gold Medal :) You firstly get a new tune, a really neat touch with the levels replicated in miniature form and scrolling through. The final credits with associated characters and then finally a change of tone and the heart warming scene with Mayhem and Theo.

FINAL SAY: It's a good'un and worth a few looks and listens :)

G.E. RATING: 9 / 10
