What on earth were ZZAP!64 magazine thinking when they gave this game an overall score of 37%!! Thirty-seven blooming percent! Were they on glue or something?! I actually like the game: cool sprites, nice music and easy game play, and so I rate is much, MUCH higher. So now that I have hyped up the game a little, is the ending any good...

The End.

HOW WAS IT COMPLETED?: Brendan used a cracked version of the game that allowed him to see the end sequence straight away!

SO WHAT HAPPENS?: Once the final level is complete, the game ending kicks in with a colourful image of Puffy and his delightful companion, what's her name (see image above). This is accompanied by a cool Michael Hendricks ending tune and the words: "CONGRATULATIONS. YOU HAVE COMPLETED ALL THE LEVELS."


  • Brendan: Static screenshot, but nice piece of music - checked and is a different piece to the title screen.

    If they gave a bit more thought and put a decent ending rather than a cop out static screen - this would have scored much higher because of the nice piece of original music

    As it stands - average only - 5/10.
  • Vinny: I know it doesn't look much, but the ending picture along with the great tune actually go together quite nicely. Saying that, it's missing an epilogue, some animation and a few more pictures :-/ I'm also going to give it 5/10.
  • Frank Gasking: I've never actually played the game before, but I might go check it out. Always looked good in the magazines to be fair, even though the game got pretty average scores. Wasn't the game around on the Amiga back in 1988/89, and not released on the C64 until 1990?

    Not a bad ending compared to most I've seen. 5/10 is probably about right with a simple picture and tune. Better than "Game Over" anyway :D
  • Andrew Fisher: I've never liked it, substandard Gauntlet style with some shoddy graphics... ending screen is OK but not spectacular.
  • Andy Vaisey: Crude in-game graphics, copy-cat gameplay with nothing new. Sorry Vinny, I agree with ZZAP! on this one! Same goes for the ending screen. So what...

FINAL SAY: It's actually a cool, but quick, ending.

G.E. RATING: 5 / 10
