Now here's a game that shouts back to my early years of Commodore 64 gaming. I first played this game back in 1984 on my cousin's BBC Micro B, and then a few weeks later I was able to buy the C64 version for £1.99 (!) from our local gaming store. I wasted away my early teens trying to complete this game and would always be captivated when I stumbled upon another graphical screen - especially if it had animation (cue the bouncing rabbit)...


The final command...


...and the final graphic.


Phew! That took AAAAAGES!


The End!

HOW WAS IT COMPLETED?: Inge managed to produce the ending using a walkthrough, and a little hack (",)

SO WHAT HAPPENS?: When you finally find the secret and type "LOOK AT SECRET", the screen changes to a slow drawing image of the 'secret'. It takes an age to draw the 'secret', and then the ending message reads: "THE SECRET OF LIFE IS SIMPLE YET COMPLETE, AS IS THE PICTURE OF IT. STAY COOL."

COMMENTS:

  • Inge: A very strange (and looong) ending.

  • Vinny: How strange is this ending(?) I think I would have been a little puzzled and annoyed if I had completed the game back in 1984. What's it all about? Why the silly message at the end? Is it supposed to be clever?

  • Brendan Phoenix: Damn, I would have had to watch that ending on emulation warp speed.

    I mean, what the fook is that all about? I dont think I have the original to see what the instructions say - that is just strange!

  • Andrew Fisher: Very different, maybe he came across the graphical effect and decided to use it as the ending?

  • Gaz Spence: The words 'watching', 'paint' and 'dry' spring to mind with this one.

FINAL SAY: Not really worth the effort (".)

G.E. RATING: 3 / 10
