I remember when Computer & Video Games magazine game
away a first level preview of this game on a FREE
Covertape way back in 1987. I spent AGES trying to
complete this one level but never seemed to get anywhere
and so it seems that C&VG didn't do Elite any favours in
releasing a preview of the game as it TOTALLY put me off
and I never EVER purchased a copy.
I have since revisited the
game and found it "OK". There a quite a few levels to
play through and so you would expect some kind of
semi-cool ending ...
HOW WAS IT COMPLETED?:
Erm ... I CHEATED!
WHAT HAPPENS?: NOTHING much happens apart from the
above screen message, which reads: MUMM RA IS
DEFEATED ... THE EYE OF THUNDER IS RETURNED.
COMMENTS: I am SERIOUSLY disappointed with this
ending! It really kills the game and doesn't offer the
player ANY kind of reward for completing such a HARD
game! Even the construction of the end screen seems to
be the standard end of level template! There was no
effort whatsoever put into this end sequence.
SAY: It has a score of 0.5! Need I say more?!
