Ruff and Reddy in the Space Adventure by Hi-Tec Software is a game from 1990, which means that I had moved onto the Amiga by then. It's a childish little platform game with cartoon characters, but it's actually quite tough, so I can't imagine many young people beating this one. I just whizzed through the game collecting everything I could, leaping about the platforms and making my way to the exits of each level. The levels varied from the planet surface to underground mines to underwater mazes. The graphics are okay and it's easy to control, but the difficulty is a tad too high. I'm not a huge fan of this, but it's not the worst platform game on the C64...


The End.

HOW WAS IT COMPLETED?:

  • Neil: I played it using an invincibility cheat.
     
  • Vinny: I crazy hacked the game and added 22 in-game features, one of them allowing you to jump straight to the game ending ;-)

SO WHAT HAPPENS?: Once you exit the final level the end screen appears. It shows Ruff and Reddy standing in the centre of the screen smiling. A message is written overhead that reads 'WELL DONE. YOU HAVE RESCUED THE LILLI PUNIES'. A message is also written below that reads 'THEY PROGRAM YOUR ROCKET TO GET YOU BACK TO EARTH. THE END'. Pressing fire restarts the game.

COMMENTS:

  • Neil: Not a bad ending really. The end screen is well drawn and the text message concludes Ruff and Reddy's little jaunt into space quite well. 4/10.
     
  • Vinny: It's not the best of platformers, but then again it isn't the worst. And as for the ending, I think 4/10 is fair enough.
  • Andrew Fisher: Not played this, but it's a nice closing scene.
     
  • Gaz Spence: A rough and ready ending in some respects but not bad for a budget title.
     
  • Andy Vaisey: At least it has something more than a simple message. Kudos for that.

FINAL SAY: A cute little end to a half decent platform game.

G.E. RATING: 4 / 10
