Back in 1985 my cousin Carmello owned this piece of
cack, but fortunately I never got to see or play it -
probably because he was too embarrassed to show it to
Twenty-eight years later
Frank Gasking of GTW64 contacted me to find out if we
could obtain the ending to this game that he used to
play many moons ago. C64endings team member Neil Collins
took up the challenge and completed the game for us, but
unfortunately I was unable to view the ending file and
so it was still wanted. Since then, I've spent some time
(5 minutes!) hacking the ending, which really wasn't
worth the effort...
As for the game itself...
it's taken from a British children's television
programme from the eighties. The game is a mish-mash of styles all rolled into a
massive turd. It actually looks like the kind of BASIC
game that C&VG magazine used to provide as a type-in!
I did used to love watching the TV show with the title
tune sung by Billy Connolly, but I
doubt the ending to this game is going to be much cop...
Nearly there Gran...
HOW WAS IT COMPLETED?:
I created a hack that allows you to press '1' to skip
levels. The file is available via the download icon
