The first time I played Pang was on my Commodore
Amiga and I thoroughly enjoyed the gaming experience,
which fortunately, for me, carried over to the Commodore
64 version. As well as having fun game play, it also
offered some nicely presented and structure graphics
along with appropriate sonix. It's still lacking in
something that doesn't make it as polished as it should
be. I still love playing this puzzler and was quite
surprised by the kind of ending it had waiting for me...
The ending begins...
After 50 levels...
...you get a parallax
...with some ending
...a few credits.
HOW WAS IT COMPLETED?:
I was originally sent the game ending by Ste Re in a
format that only worked with the CCS64 emulator. After
finding a cracked/trained version in Gamebase 64, I
whizzed through the 50 levels using the Commodore Key
and then created a .PRG version of the ending - which
you can download above.
SO WHAT HAPPENS?:
After level 17-50, a parallax scrolling landscape of
Easter Island is displayed with ending message that
read: "FINALLY YOUR LONG ADVENTURE IS AT AN END",
"THIS IS THE EASTER ISLAND", "ENJOY THE SUNSET
OF THE SOUTHERN PACIFIC", "THANK YOU FOR PLAYING",
"COPYRIGHT MITCHELL", "CONVERSION BY ARC
DEVELOPMENTS", AND "PRODUCED BY OCEAN SOFTWARE
LIMITED." This is all accompanied by an ending
