Shellshock is a Commando-esque action game that
requires you to collect four parts of a schematic
diagram, which you receive at the end of each level. The
game itself isn't very good to be honest; it's very
hard, and the graphics are quite messy. The backgrounds
look like an explosion in a paint factory, which hurts
your eyes playing. It's all a bit chaotic...
Just two more to get
...and they're gone!
HOW WAS IT COMPLETED?:
Using an infinite lives cheat and level skipper.
- Vinny: I
completed it two ways... using a trainer to skip to left
three and then play through to the end with infinite
lives; I also hacked the ending, which can be unlocked
by freezing the game with an Action Replay Cart, and
jumping to memory location: $0D9A (G 0D9A).
SO WHAT HAPPENS?:
At the end of level four you get the final part of the
diagram. You get to see a picture of the complete
schematic with the words 'WELL DONE' written
above it. A message at the bottom tells you that you
have retrieved all the stolen pieces and that your
mission has been a complete success. The game then ends.

I always felt it was alright as a cover tape game but
not something I would have paid £3.99 for.
It was obvious this was how it would end, so I'm not
- Gaz Spence:
Not bad for 5 minutes blast although I expect the game
didn't take much longer to code. The ending brings some
closure and is a little more than a line of text but
Better than the usual ending to such games. This one has
a schematic! What more do you want!
