> RAINBOW ISLANDS - Ending Version 1 - by Graftgold

• Completed & Reviewed by Vinny Mainolfi

Okay, so I'll come clean and say that I didn't play through the game but instead I used the "SEE ENDING FIRST" option that was provided in the cracked version of this game (",).

Just to give you an idea of what I had to go through to get this ending: I had to load the ending into my emulator at the speed of 40% so that I could freeze the ending just as it was about to display the first ending screen. If I didn't slow the emulator down then the ending would load and display, and when frozen (using my Action Replay Cartridge file) the screen would corrupt for some reason! Fortunately my trick worked and you can now download a clean version of the game ending (",).

So after all that fiddling (oo-er missus), was it all worth it? ...

WOW! Look at all those jewels!!

Huh?! Not another mission? Or are they referring to Parasol Stars?

The Team (",)


SO WHAT HAPPENS?: The CONGRATULATIONS screen is displayed with some impressive graphics and cut music, which is then followed by three message screens which complete the story ... or we are led to believe.

The messages read, "The adventure on the Rainbow Islands is over! You have succeeded in getting loads of treasure. But, just then, the heap of treasures begins to break down! 'what's this' It is a letter from the people in Rainbow Islands asking for help"

Another screen is displayed in a letter format telling you that there is more to be done - probably in the next instalment that never arrived on the C64!

The letter reads, "We are captured by 'The Boss of Shadow' who turned many people into the Bubble Dragons! If you get 7 big diamonds of the 7 islands, you can change us back into human beings !! Please, please, HELP US !!"

Finally, the programming team names are displayed in sparkly colours for all to see.

COMMENTS: It is actually a good ending and very pleasing on the eyes and ears. I was expecting a boring ending but this was certainly worth seeing.

FINAL SAY: Go on ... you know you wanna see it! (",)

G.E. RATING: 7 / 10
