Completed & Reviewed by Matthew Rogers

Thanks to Matt Rogers for sending in this cool ending. Over to you Matt ...

If you've never played it before, you need to build a rocket and fly to the moon. Once on the moon you have to kill a bunch of Amazonian women who (inexplicably) live there.

Here's what the ending looks like ...

The story is complete ...

... and our hero gets his reward.

The End.

HOW WAS IT COMPLETED?: I never cheated but did use save-states as the load times are pretty scary.

SO WHAT HAPPENS?: I was extremely impressed with how close it is to the Amiga version (which is fantastic), so was a little disappointed with the completion, which differs considerable.

Once you've killed the Amazonian women, you see the above screen shot, saying that the women were aliens who were behind the Nazis power. However, on the Amiga, you see another message which seems to be the end of the game, but that is then torn in two by a large alien, and you have to kill that in order to complete the game.

Finally, our hero gets to snog his heroin and the words, "THE END" appear, which is accompanied by a cool ending tune.

COMMENTS: It's a decent ending to a great game.

FINAL SAY: If the alien bit was there it'd be a 10 for me, but I'll go with an 8.

G.E. RATING: 8 / 10
