I remember buying this game on the day it was
released way back in 1987. I was a MASSIVE Stavros fan
and couldn't get enough of his games. Having this little
gem in my collection was like owning the Holy Grail. I
still own the original on tape...
Quedex is a cleanly
presented and well thought out arcade platform game that
has you controlling a ball around various obstacles and
traps. The view of the game is played from above and
offers the game player a great perspective on what lies
ahead. With beautiful graphics and a thumping Matt Gray
soundtrack, this looks good and plays good too.
Definitely one for the 'Commodore 64 games you must
play before you die' list :)
Unfortunately, I spent HOURS trying to
complete this game but unfortunately I was not trying
hard enough. It wasn't until today (26/6/05) that I have
actually seen the game's ending - many years on ... OUCH!
So was it worth it? ...
That's it?!!! The End.
HOW WAS IT COMPLETED?:
I used a very simple and convenient level skipper.
SO WHAT HAPPENS?:
Nothing happens apart from the static screen above :(
The ending message reads: "HAPPY HAPPY HELLOWEEN...
THE QUEST IS FINISHED. PLAY AGAIN".
- Vinny: This
game ending is TOTALLY cack! I must have spent DAYS,
weeks even, trying to get to the end of this one to find
that there is nothing but a shitty static screen (see
above). Even the music is poor and I LOVE Matt Gray's
work! I seriously feel like battering someone! (".)
the game right through, and then switch off your C64
VERY QUICKLY before the end screen appears (",)
Boring, boring, BORING!
