This ending came about as a request from forum
member Corvo on the
C64endings Forum. Corvo had been playing the game to
see if he could reach the ending, but to no avail. He
requested the ending and I took up the challenge, but
unfortunately I found the game too hard - and too long
to play through as I get bored quite quickly. Anyway - I
spent five minutes looking through the code and
successfully finding the ending...
Cheating aside, Microdot
is actually a great little arcade, platform game - and
challenging too! If you haven't already played it yet, I
would suggest loading it up and spending sometime seeing
how far you can get. As for the ending...
HOW WAS IT COMPLETED?:
I was a nuaghty boy and hacked the ending. Just freeze
the game and go into MONITOR and jump to location: $A4E8
SO WHAT HAPPENS?:
The ending screen appears with the following message: "CONGRATULATIONS,
MICRODOT! YOU HAVE REMOVED ALL OF THE 99 RADIOACTIVE
GLITCHES FROM THE CIRCUIT, AND ACTIVATED IT. THE
MILITARY SATALITE [!] IS NOW FUNCTIONAL. YOU HAVE SAVED
YOUR COUNTRY FROM THE THREAT OF FOREIGN INVASION, AND
THE PRESIDENT HAS SENT HIS PERSONAL THANKS. MICRODOT CAN
NOW HAVE A WELL DESERVED REST. WELL DONE, MICRODOT!"
The screen also shows Microdot spinning.
