Completed & Comments by Brendan (Fiery) Phoenix

Brendan is at it again! Yet another game ending for us all to see. This time it's in the form of Ocean's Short Circuit, which wasn't a particular favourite of mine, but I know that C64endings Team Member Frank Gasking has been waiting a while to get his hands on this ending :-)


"Jonnie 5 is alive!"


"SHOOT THE F##KER!"


"GOTCHA"


The End.

HOW WAS IT COMPLETED? BRENDAN: "No cheats - just used the quick save option - proper pain. Got to a point where I thought it was impossible as I kept losing energy, but I was persistent and went back to the beginning to try again and eventually did it"

SO WHAT HAPPENS?: Once the game is complete, Jonnie 5 wheels over to the back of a van and then comes racing back again. A helicopter passes overhead and takes a shot at Jonnie, disabling him forever! But then we find out it's a decoy robot - phew!

COMMENTS: BRENDAN: "I was surprised with the ending - rare to get a little animated sequence back in the 80's - especially with an Ocean licence - only downer was no congratulations message or well done - just a short little message saying you have successfully constructed a decoy robot."

FINAL SAY: BRENDAN: "The end. A well done or congratulations would have been nice!"

G.E. RATING: 6 / 10
