Task III is a vertical shoot-em-up by Databyte, and
a pretty decent one too. The graphics are good and quite
well animated and the control method is smooth and
responsive. A nice touch in this game is the ability to
flip your ship and scroll back down through the level,
so you can collect or shoot whatever you missed. It's
easy to get into and complete a few levels, but it does
then start to get much harder. I recommend you check
this one out as it seems to be popular amongst C64
gamers. It may be a game that passed you by...
The final enemy ship
is on its way out...
Reduced to dust.
HOW WAS IT COMPLETED?:
I used a load of cheats that gave me tons of power and
the ability to skip levels.
SO WHAT HAPPENS?:
At the end of the final level I fought a larger
spaceship. Once it was blown to smithereens, the game
was beaten. The ending is simply a short page of text
which tells you that you are the hero of the 60th
century as the evil guy is now dead and the imperium is
free. The game then restarted.
