Thomas the Tank Engine by Alternative Software is
based on the famous kids TV character. It's aimed at the
younger C64 user with it's bright colourful graphics and
recognisable train characters.
is to help Thomas complete his tasks for the fat
controller. This means guiding him along the track and
avoiding all the obstacles in his way. It's not a great
game and it can be beaten quite quickly and easily but
it looks and plays very well. I imagine young kids would
love this but it's not that great for grown ups. Nicely
put together though.
HOW WAS IT COMPLETED?:
I played it and quickly completed all tasks.
- Vinny: As
usual, I hacked the ending by using my Action Replay
Cartridge and jumping to memory location: $1378. Simple.
SO WHAT HAPPENS?:
The final screen shows the happy fat controller in the
centre of the screen. A
message is displayed that reads 'WELL DONE THOMAS.
YOU HAVE FINISHED ALL THIS WEEKS JOBS'.
