Space Gun, a one or two player game, is set in the year 2039 and involves you taking on the role of a Colonial Marine and running around shooting the heads off of angry aliens who intend on taking over the human race - or not as the case may be. It's a great shooter with some cool graphics and sonics, but what of the game ending...


Shoot that mutt!


"GOTCHA!"


And so the end begins...


...


...


"Whoo-hoo!"


"Roll the credits!"


Team for some team names...


The End.

The bad ending...


Here's a building...


...and there it was! The End.

HOW WAS IT COMPLETED?: I had to play through in order to save the hostages ("I used a level-skip cheat to get the ending - Vinny).

SO WHAT HAPPENS?: Once you have killed off the final alien boss, the game ending begins with an epilogue that is accompanied by some cool little images and a nice tune (much like the intro). This then turns into a movie style scrolling credit ending that reveals the programming team.

COMMENTS:

  • Brendan: Space Gun - really good conversion - plays very closely to the arcade version - very impressed. As I am with the ending (included the bad ending which I came across by mistake when I shot my cockpit up!) really good arcade feel to the ending, good end music, static pics showing the closing story line and a list of credits - excellent. Very similar to the Total Recall ending which around the same time. 8/10 for me.

  • Vinny: I agree with Brendan's comments about the game and the ending. The only thing missing for me is the sparkle and a bit more pizzazz to the ending. The scrolling credits are made up of the Commodore 64 standard character set, and the graphics needed a little more polish to them. I'd give it a 7/10.

  • Andrew Fisher: Lucky enough to have this one on cartridge and disk... pretty good conversion, and a very nice ending.

  • Andy Vaisey: A tidy game and ending.

FINAL SAY: Good - but not brilliant. Worth a few looks.

G.E. RATING: 7.5 / 10
