TALES OF BOON
by X-ample Architectures
& Reviewed by Neil Collins
Tales of Boon is a Hawkeye clone. The graphics and
sound are pretty good, but the game play is very
frustrating and difficult. I played this for a short
amount of time before I had to cheat. It's not as good
as Hawkeye, but worth a look if you liked Hawkeye and
want an even harder challenge.
Level 6 is finally
HOW WAS IT COMPLETED?:
Using a cheat that allowed me to skip to the end.
SO WHAT HAPPENS?:
At the end of the game you get to see a cool little
picture of the city. A congratulations message is shown
at the bottom, with a few lines of text saying that your
trials are completed and that you are now approved. The
fate of your family now lies in your hands. The game
- Neil: Not as
good as the ending to Hawkeye. 3/10.
I'd never really heard of this game until Neil
sent in the ending, and so I thought I would check
it out. After playing through a few times and dying
within seconds, it's obvious that this is a poor
man's Hawkeye. Don't get me wrong; it's a good game,
but it's lacking in the game play department.
As for the ending... I actually like it. Okay - so
it's not amazing, but it looks good and the music is
nice too. 4/10.
- Matt Rogers:
Never heard of it either, but that is a lovely
piccy. Nicely done.
- Gaz Spence:
A typical X-Ample game with flashy graphics,
tremendous sound, but slightly iffy gameplay. The
ending piccy is pretty cool with some interesting
shading employed and a Euro-bop tune - albeit a
shame it wasn't a cover of 'Hi Ho Silver' :D
Michael Elphick RIP.
- Andy Vaisey:
Never heard of this, but have taken a quick
look; yes, very Hawkeye-ish with the same fun
initially, but limited gameplay. Nice shading on the
Lovely looking ending screen, spoiled by a congrats
type message and average Bayliss-esque boppy choon.
- Andrew Fisher:
Nice picture, OK music, not a lot happening.
Must check out the game now - I've not heard of it
- Stefan Guerilla:
Nice: The picture looks pretty good, a brief
ending text plus a decent tune. I think I would have
been satisfied would I have completed the game.
That's 4.5 for me!
- Brendan Phoenix:
Ok ending piccy and some ok music as well,
nothing brilliantm but better than most of the
rubbish we see. As guerilla said, I too would be
happy if I was presented with this ending.
FINAL SAY: A nice little picture, but that's
