Here's an addictive arcade
adventure game that takes me back to a time of innocent
computer gaming. Unfortunately, it was one of those
games I could never quite complete, but it wasn't for a
lack of trying. Many a night was spent trying to get
Wally to wake up - which is the ultimate aim of the game
- but to no avail. I wasn't to see the ending for
another 28 years when I decided to build a
hack for the game and finally reveal the ending...
Oooo... Wally is still
Not for long!
I love them fireworks!
HOW WAS IT COMPLETED?: I have built a crazy hack for
Pyjamarama that has a whole host of new
features, as well as revealing the ending. Check out the
Crazy Hacks section of
SO WHAT HAPPENS?:
Once you get to Wally's room with The Clock Key, you
just walk onto the clock and the game ending kicks in...
Fireworks start to ignite and fill the night's sky. This
is followed by an ending message that reads:
"CONGRATULATIONS! WALLY'S WOKEN UP. FOR THE FIRST TIME
IN HIS LIFE HE WILL BE EARLY FOR WORK. NOW WATCH OUT FOR
'LIFE OF WALLY'".
To he honest, I
was only really expecting a screen of text, and so
it's a bonus to get a small animation - as small as
it may be. It seems that whoever programmed these
Wally Week games, they ensured that there was some
kind of game ending.
Wally games have a great humour to them and are good
examples of the arcade adventure games from the
early '80s. The ending is fair, probably worth a
4.5. I'll have to check out the crazy cheats now :D
usually like games that name check an upcoming
release, but will cut it some slack as it's not a
bad little ending.
Was 'Life of Wally' ever released? One for GTW and
FINAL SAY: It
isn't brilliant, but it is certainly rewarding.
