Thanks to Frank Gasking for sending in this game
ending a few months ago. Frank sent it in VSF format and
it took me a while to convert it to .PRG without
crashing (trick is to save the file to TAPE using ACTION
REPLAY CART; reload it and then save it to DISK -
strange but true!)
If you didn't already
know, Rick Dangerous 2 is a sequel to the popular
arcade, platform adventure game produced by Core Design.
Yet again, you take on the role of the intrepid
explorer, Rick Dangerous, who has to battle his way
through various trap infested rooms to collect a variety
of items that will assist him in defeating the evil Fat
Man. With crisp and clean graphics and a vast array of
rooms to explore, Rick Dangerous 2 is definitely not a
game to miss out on...
So was it worth all the
The Final Level.
Rick has found a way out ...
... and steps into the teleporter.
"Where did that hat come from?!" - Webmaster
"WHAT THE ...!" - Webmaster
Fat Blokes tries to damage the teleporter but sets it off instead.
Looks like Rick is in for a surprise at the other end!
CONGRATULATIONS! The End.
HOW WAS IT COMPLETED?:
I am not quite sure how Frank completed it, but I do
remember completing it many moons ago with an infinite
lives and energy cheat - bet THAT'S what he did c(",)
SO WHAT HAPPENS?:
Finally, Rick gets to the teleporter and activates it to
escape from the ship. Just before he leaves, his
'Indiana Jones' hat flies in from the right hand side of
the room, where upon he catches it and places it on his
bonce. The message, "... and so Rick saves the day by
defeating the fat guy and his fleet of robot starships!"
appear at the foot of the screen.
Rick disappears but is
closely followed by Fat Bloke who obviously wants to
surprise Rick at the other end - oo-er, missus! The
final message reads, "... what will Rick do next?".
Actually, we know what he does ... NOTHING!
The 'GAME OVER' screen
appears, which is quickly replaced by a CONGRATULATIONS
Dave Pridmore has written
a fitting tune that is timed perfectly with the end
- Vinny: This
game ending isn't going to amaze or shock you, but it
does offer the player some food for thought.
Unfortunately, it has been a FEW years since this game
was produced and there doesn't seem to be any
continuation from this 'ending'. What happened to Rick?
Are we EVER to see him again?
Say 'hello' then wave 'goodbye'
