This game cracks me up (",) There is so much humour
wrapped up in this little gem that you could almost be
arrested by the cops for playing it over and over again...

appeared later on in the Commodore 64's life - in fact
towards the end of its commercial life. That didn't
deter it from being a brilliant piece of work and
earning an overall score of 93% from ZZAP! 64 magazine.
And well deserved too because the graphics are fun and
colourful, and the game play and levels are to die for.
It was what we were starting to expect from the great
game makers themselves Ash & Dave. So what of the game ending ...
And so there final chapter begins ...
An island somewhere far, far away.
It's only inhabitants are giant red ants! But hold
on a second;
who is this materialising?
"Catch those faking ants!"
And of he scuttles ...

squashes Nobby to the size of a pancake. He survives the

- Vinny: This game ending is pure comedy at its
best. The graphics, colours, sound and humour all add up
to make a hilariously fitting ending to this superb
game. It really is one for your game ending collection
and is certainly worthy of the GOLD MEDAL AWARD. 10/10.
- Andrew Fisher:
I loved this game, from the moment I played the demo.
The graphics throughout are brilliant and it has a
wicked sense of humour.
That sense of humour includes the amazing intro and
outro sequences. I have completed it myself, and it was
worth the effort. 9/10 from me.
- Gaz Spence: An
excellent game that plays to the c64's strengths - great
sprites and smooth scrolling. Added to the mix is the
humorous ending, where the tables are somewhat turned on
Nobby. 9 out of 10 for the game but 8.5 for the ending
would be a fair assessment in my opinion.
- Brendan Phoenix:
On a satisfaction level on viewing this ending after
completing the game, it deserves the 10/10.
Great little animated ending, nice little animation of
rubbing your tummy when you eat up the ants, little
ditty, etc - all makes up for a more than satisfying
Another great end game sequence from Thalamus.
- Frank Gasking:
Stunning ending, and they really put a lot of blood and
sweat into this game! 10/10.
