> SLEEPWALKER by Zeppelin Games

• Completed & Reviewed by Neil Collins

As I'm sure you're all aware, I'm a big fan of Zeppelin Games and have been since their first ever Commodore 64 release Zybex back in 1988...

Sleepwalker (not to be mistaken with the Ocean version) is a humorous budget release which follows a novel concept involving following your sleepwalking Uncle Silas around each night for a week in his mansion and making sure he doesn't wake up. There are numerous obstacles that fall in his path that you have to protect him from and keep him fast asleep until he reaches his bed. This crazy idea is wrapped up into a cute little bundle that houses some respectable graphics and sonics, and makes this game an enjoyable budget release...

The final night (Sunday) is over...

The morning is here...

"What's that?"


"You order a taxi, Guv?"

"Home James!"


The End.

HOW WAS IT COMPLETED?: I used trained version that gave me infinite cheats, but also allowed me to skip the nights.

SO WHAT HAPPENS?: Once your Uncle reaches his bed safely for the final night (Sunday), the scene changes and shows you outside the mansion waiting for your ride home. A taxi arrives, you get in and it whizzes off. This is accompanied by sound effects.


  • Vinny: What I really love about this game ending are the sound effects of the taxi. It's really cool. Nice to see some ending animation too. 6/10 from me.
  • Andrew Fisher: I love this game, Drew Rodger created some brilliant sound FX and music to complement a very fun idea. I've managed to finish a couple of nights before but never got to the end.

    It's a great ending too, a clever re-use of the title screen and a neat idea having the nephew escape in the taxi.

    And it's one of the games mentioned in my article on Zeppelin Games, to be published in issue 119 of Retro Gamer this month...

  • Brendan Phoenix: Missing a bit of a congratulations message to really appreciate your accomplishment. Other than that - not too bad.

  • Andy Vaisey: Not a bad ending at all!

FINAL SAY: A nice enough for a budget title.

G.E. RATING: 6 / 10
