> MURRAY MOUSE: SUPER-COP by Codemasters


• Completed by Georg
Reviewed by Vinny Mainolfi

I've only recently acquired the original of Murray Mouse by Codemasters and so it was the first time I had loaded it up and had a play. I was excited to read on the title page that the game was produced by the one and only Ian Gray who is one of my favourite early Commodore 64 coders. Ian also produced games such as China Miner, Doriath, Spooked, Slightly Magic, Tales of the Arabian Nights, and many of the Dizzy Games - to name but a few.

Murray Mouse is one of Ian's later games and appeared in the Codemasters label back in 1991. It's a platformer that has you controlling a 'Super-cop' mouse called Murray around a series of multi-screens on a mission to save the Cheese Moon from evil Mouse Malone and his squeaky assailants. It's a cute and colourful game with some fitting sonix from Allister Brimble (who produced many of the Codemasters tunes in the early nineties).

So what happens at the end of the game when our intrepid hero, Murray Mouse, saves the moon...


Murray Mouse has found the final mouse...


"GOTCHA!"


The End.

HOW WAS IT COMPLETED?: I'm not sure how Georg completed the game, but I would definitely have cheated ;-)

SO WHAT HAPPENS?: Once you have found the final mouse, the ending message appears, which reads: "GOTCHA! SQUEAK. 0 LEFT! WELL DONE, THE MOON IS SAFE, YIPPPEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE !!!"

COMMENTS:

  • Vinny: Unfortunately, even though this is a cute and fun game to play, it is let down by the sub-standard game ending, which is lacking in so many ways :( 1/10 from me.
  • Andrew Fisher: It's alright for a budget game, but didn't set my pulse racing. Just chucking up a badly formatted text box as an ending doesn't cut it either.
     
  • Brendan Phoenix: Game ending is like the speccy-esque graphics - rubbish.
     
  • Andy Vaisey: As I've made clear before, I hate all this hires gaming rubbish from the Codies, therefore I'm not going to comment.

    Damn, I just did...

FINAL SAY:  Not such a squeaky clean ending :(

G.E. RATING: 1 / 10
