So there I was, minding my own business and wading
through the thousands of Commodore 64 game entries in
Gamebase 64, when I stumbled on this little fella. I
remembered that I own an original of it, but wondered
why an original .TAP file of this game wasn't available
in the database. So being the kind fella that I am, I
decided to preserve a copy of the game for Gamebase 64
(now completed and sent), but at the same time checking
it out to see if it's worth crazy hacking.
A week later, I had
created a full-blown crazy hack (which you can download
HERE) but I also managed to secure the game ending -
which isn't what I originally set out to do, and so it's
a massive bonus.
If you haven't played SQIJ!
by The Power House, it's a gently, almost child-like,
platform adventure game that has you controlling a bird
called Sqij in search of pieces of the Ener Tree. It's
not a difficult task (especially with my hack!), but
does require patience in the exploration...
The tree is complete!
HOW WAS IT COMPLETED?:
I ripped this one to pieces and produced one of my
Hackersoft crazy hacks, which included a feature to skip
straight to the ending. You can download the crazy hack
SO WHAT HAPPENS?:
Once you have collected and placed all the pieces to the
tree, it starts to flash and then the ending message
appears, which reads: "WELL DONE!!! YOU'VE SAVED SQIJ
FROM ALMOST CERTAIN DEATH BY STARVATION. THE ENERTREE
STANdS TO THIS VERY DAY IN THE CAVE OF 'LOTZ-TOO-WEET'
GIVING CONSTANT SUPPLY OF FOOD TO SQIJ AND ALL HIS
FAMILY AND FRIENDS."
