Prince Clumsy is a simple little side-scrolling
platform game by Codemasters. Usual scenario - you play
the part of a prince, and your mission is to rescue some
dizzy damsel who has somehow got into mischief (as they
usually do). It's your typical budget game with average
graphics and sound. The gameplay is pretty boring - it's
fun for a few minutes.
HOW WAS IT COMPLETED?:
Using an infinite lives cheat.
SO WHAT HAPPENS?:
Once you reach the end you get to see a picture of the
prince and the rescued damsel. You are congratulated on
your rescue efforts and find out that the damsel was in
fact held prisoner by her evil sister. Nice family.
It's ok. Standard end to a
budget platform game.
- Vinny: I love
playing this game; it's the poor man's Ghost & Goblins
:) It's a shame that the ending isn't much cop. I did
expect something a little more dazzling such as a small
animation sequence. Music's nice though.
- Andrew Fisher:
This was released at a "mid-price" level of £4.99 rather
than £1.99, but I never got round to playing it. Suppose
the ending, which mimics Ghosts 'n Goblins, is
appropriate if not outstanding.
- Andy Vaisey: An
obvious G'n'G rip-off, with rather pleasant graphics in
my opinion. Doesn't play quite as fluidly as G'n'G
because of the 'adventure' type parts of the gameplay,
but a brave attempt at doing something slightly
different from the source material. A real shame about
the unimaginative ending however...
- Brendan Phoenix:
Not too bad - what is expected ala. G'n'G, Hunchback,
Robin to the Rescue, etc, etc - any sort of game where
you have to rescue a damsel in distress. Nice ye olde
FINAL SAY: It's not a classic, but it will do.
