TERROR OF THE DEEP
& Reviewed by Frank Gasking
Terror of the Deep is one of those games that every
time I load up, just takes me back to those wonderful
days of picking up Commodore Format magazine and having
the game FREE on the covertape. I never fully got into
the game, but tried my best to navigate around and find
Nessie. Never understood what I was supposed to do (as I
couldn't be bothered, back then, to read the
Uh - what's that?!
HOW WAS IT COMPLETED?:
If you go to location $05D5 and put in $02... it
triggers off the ending.
- Vinny: You can
also fire up the ending by freezing the game with an
Action Replay Cartridge, going to MONITOR MODE and
typing: G 0BF9 (which dirty jumps to the game ending
SO WHAT HAPPENS?:
Loch Ness monster pops its head up, and then it goes to
the congratulations page where you have saved both
and the Loch. I think there is another ending where you
blow up Nessie as well and just save the loch - though I
believe the Terror of the Deep is the crystals that you
have to destroy.
Overall its a nice little ending, a nice sequence where
Nessie appears in front of you and then just the generic
newspaper page with congrats text. Certainly one of the
better endings, and a long unsolved mystery solved :) -
I love ICU64! ;-) 4/10.
- Vinny: This
really isn't my kind of game and so I haven't really
spent too much time playing through the game.
As for the ending...
I guessed that's what we'd see and hear. 3/10 from me.
- Brendan Phoenix:
Did not realise this had come off the wanted page - was
on their for a loooong time, so great to see the ending.
- Andrew Fisher:
I did enjoy playing this when I got it on the cover
tape, but I never felt like I was getting very far with
Good to know there is an ending, although it was fairly
safe to assume it would be a variation on the newspaper
- Gaz Spence:
It's funny that I've just responded to a thread on Lemon
64 about steampunk style games on the C64 referencing
this very game. I was drawn into the otherworldly
atmosphere of the game when it appeared on the CF cover
tape. I never got too far into the game but found it
strangely compelling. I particularly like the sound
effects that help to notch up the tension. The ending is
nice to see, although perhaps the newspaper headline
effect is a little unoriginal.
- Neil Collins:
Well done to Frank on Terror of the Deep.
I was on the final bit. Blew up all the pods - just
couldn't find Nessie.
A tricky one off the list. Top stuff.
FINAL SAY: Phew!
I can't believe we finally solved the
