> SHEEP VS. FOX by TND


• Completed & Reviewed by Vinny Mainolfi

It has been well documented that I'm not really a fan of SEUCK games, but that doesn't stop me buying suped up versions when Psytronik release them to the Commodore 64 software hungry public... Richard Bayliss seems to have created a successful formula for suping up SEUCK games that have been originally designed and produced by the great Alf Ynve, and Sheep vs. Fox is another of their teamwork successes...

Wrapped up in a neat looking and sounding Bayliss package, Sheep vs. Fox is an original concept for SEUCK that pushes the standard building elements above and beyond their limits. Playing the role of Sheepy, it's your job to protect your friends from the hungry, sly foxes who are running around the field looking for their next meal. With colourful and fun graphics, clever game play, and a bouncing tune to boot, Sheep vs. Fox is a refreshing change from the mind-numbingly, substandard SEUCK offerings that we have all become accustomed to.


Sheepy's mates are safe...


...as the foxes have their final run...


...but end of over the edge!


Bye, bye sly foxes!


"YAAAAAAY!"


The End.

HOW WAS IT COMPLETED?: I cheated of course! You can either play through the game by turning all the sprite collision off using an Action Replay Cartridge, OR you can freeze the game, go into MONITOR mode and type "G 6BD6", which will dirty jump you to the ending location $6DB6. Simples.

SO WHAT HAPPENS?: Once you have got to the end of the line - cliff tops in this case - the ending kicks in with a message that reads: "CONGRATULATIONS. YOUR SHEEP HAS ESCAPED TO SAFETY FROM THE HUNGRY FOXES. NOT ONLY DID YOUR SHEEP SURVIVE, THE GUARD DOG DID A MAGNIFICENT JOB AND SHEEPY IS FREE ONCE MORE." This is accompanied by a Bayliss tune.

COMMENTS:

  • Vinny: A nice looking game and a nice enough ending. I really love the ending tune - great sounds from the SID courtesy of maestro Bayliss.
  • Andrew Fisher: It's a fun little game created in Sideways SEUCK, but I've only played it a few times.

    Good to see an interesting ending though.
  • Andy Vaisey: The best that can be done with the SEUCK engine I suppose...

FINAL SAY: It's a SEUCK game ending and so we can't expect too much. Nice though...

G.E. RATING: 5 / 10
