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...


The End.

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: $A4E8 (G$ 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.

COMMENTS:

  • Vinny: To be honest with you, I was only ever expecting a simple "WELL DONE" screen, and so it's refreshing to get that little bit more info and a small "animation!". There's obviously some sign of effort going on here. 1.5/10 from me.
  • Andrew Fisher: It's an interesting little game, I got it on the Commodore Disk User disk. But it always seemed a huge task, getting all 99 glitches. Thanks to Vinny's hacking skills we now know it's a very straightforward ending as a reward.
  • Brendan Phoenix: I don't mind a static ending screen as long as there is some meaningful text. This fits the bill in an adequate ending.
  • Andy Vaisey: Hmmm... although I usually moan about text message endings, this seems strangely appropriate if rather simple.

FINAL SAY: Far too simple :(

G.E. RATING: 1.5 / 10
