• Completed & Reviewed by Neil Collins

Sidewinder II is a vertical scrolling shoot-em-up. It's not the most exciting shooter out there, but it's fun for a few minutes. The game play is decent enough and the graphics are well drawn. Worth a blast if that's your thing...


Mission complete...


Cool.


Gotta get my name in therer!


The End.

HOW WAS IT COMPLETED?: Using an infinite lives cheat.

SO WHAT HAPPENS?: Once you complete the final level an ending screen pops up. A message appears reading 'MISSION SUCCESSFUL. YOU ARE NOW AN OFFICIAL HERO OF PLANET EARTH. NICE SHOOTIN KID!'. Over the top of this message, four spaceships fly up out of the top of the screen and then loop back a few times before the game restarts.

COMMENTS:

  • Neil: A fair ending. Better than expected... 4/10.
     
  • Vinny: This isn't a game I've played before and so I'm going to have to check it out...

    As for the ending... it's acceptable, but I was expecting something a little extra. 4/10 from me too.
  • Andrew Fisher: I believe it's based on an Amiga game, one of Mastertronic's earliest budget games for that computer.

    Not played it but quite like that ending. PAL Developments also did some work for Hi-Tec.

FINAL SAY: Not bad. A neat little end screen.

G.E. RATING: 4 / 10
