Now and again I'm pleasantly surprised to find a
good Commodore 64 game that I've yet to play...
I first stumbled on this
game after crazy hacking the Mat Sneap game 'KNUCKLEBUSTERS'
and decided to see if there were any other games he
created that I could hack. To my amazement there was,
and it was in the form of a '3D' puzzle platformer that
had totally passed me by. Mission Impossibubble was
released on a Hewson compilation pack way back in 1989,
which is why I'd never played it because I wasn't really
a fan of compilations - my loss. After loading this up,
it was obvious to me that it was a GEM of a game with
crisp graphics, clean sonix, and challenging gameplay -
all coded together in a neat package worthy of any C64
collector's pocket money. I was sold on this one, and I
was also pleased to have built a worthy crazy hack to
give do it some justice.
So what of the game
The final level is
HOW WAS IT COMPLETED?:
I'm guessing that Gaz cheated because the version he
sent me had infinite lives.
As for me, I cheated
BIG TIME! I actually created a crazy hack for this game
that has 22 extra in-game features; one of them being
the game ending. You can download the crazy hack from
the link area above.
SO WHAT HAPPENS?:
Once you've returned the final hostage to the start of
the last level, the screen clears and displays
Impossibubble and his friends bouncing up and down to
the Cliff Richard song 'CONGRATULATIONS', and the words
"CONGRATULATIONS. EVERYBODY'S HAPPY NOW."
