• Completed & Reviewed by Vinny Mainolfi

I remember playing this game back in the day. A friend of mine had a cracked version and we spent hours trying to complete it, but to no avail. The sad thing is that it only takes about 40 seconds when you use a cheat, but then that defeats the object of playing it I suppose. Anyway, a fun little game for its day, but what of the ending...


Final level complete.


Whooosh to the front on the train.


"STOP THAT TRAIN!"


Phew!


The End.

HOW WAS IT COMPLETED?: I used a mega cheat that allowed me to walk straight to the ending in about 40 seconds!

SO WHAT HAPPENS?: Once you have completed the final section of the train, the screen pans over to the front of the train as it slows down. When it comes to a stop, the door opens to the engine and our hero appears. The ending message reads: "CONGRATULATIONS! THE TRAIN HAS STOPPED!"

COMMENTS:

  • Vinny: A bit of animation with the train coming to a stop and the door opening, along with a message, but there isn't much else to see.

  • Andrew Fisher: For the time it was fun, played it recently in the Retroleague and it is really frustrating. I suppose the ending was always going to be simple.

  • Neil Collins: I remember beating this on the spectrum without cheating. I liked this game a lot as a kid. I thought the main character was really cool and it really did feel like you were on a speeding train.

    The ending sadly is very poor.

  • Brendan Phoenix: Toughie - It's ok I suppose given the time it was from. Did Tony Crowther do this? Has he ever done a great ending?

  • Andy Vaisey: Old (bloody hard!) game, old style (boring) ending. Nuff said.

FINAL SAY: What can I say? It was 1984!

G.E. RATING: 2 / 10
