Here's a game I bet a lot of you have never played... I stumbled across Sun Star on YouTube while viewing Amiga games, although I saw the Atari ST version. I was surprised to see it on the C64 and it's not too bad. It reminded me of Ballblazer, but it's not a sports game. It's played in a large grid where you have to hunt down and shoot various enemies and collect the crystals they drop. Enough crystals allow access to the next grid of which there are sixteen to beat. I found the main playing area quite confusing, so I played using the aerial map in the bottom left corner of the screen which shows a smaller icon version of the grid. It's very hard to beat as there are a lot of levels to beat and energy runs out quickly. Check this one out. It somehow evaded my clutches back in the day.


The End.

HOW WAS IT COMPLETED?: I poked myself infinite energy and played through all the levels. It took quite a while.

SO WHAT HAPPENS?: On beating the last grid, the information panel at the bottom of the screen clears in funky fashion before displaying the end message. The message reads 'MISSION COMPLETE... PRESS RUN TO WARP BACK TO GRID ONE'. (I think they meant RUN-STOP).

COMMENTS:

  • Neil: Only slightly better than a 'Game Over' message. Ever so slightly though... 2/10.
     
  • Vinny: Neil is right... I've never played it. I'll have to check it out.

    As for the ending... it aint no star! 2/10 from me too.
  • Andrew Fisher: With a bit more depth, this could have been fun. I don't remember seeing it on sale as a full-price game, only on the Commodore Format covertape.

    The ending fits the rest of the presentation.

FINAL SAY: Rather boring. I worked hard on this one too!

G.E. RATING: 2 / 10
