I remember completing this one many moons ago and writing a game ending review for my END OF THE LINE column in COMMODORE SCENE magazine. Since then, I have had this ending archived on a real C64 5.25" disk but unfortunately, my disks are starting to whittle away and become corrupt - as many of you have already noticed!

Amway, thanks to Matt we can all get to see the ending once again ...

The Final Screen: Dead Elephants! The End.

HOW WAS IT COMPLETED?: Most of the versions knocking about are corrupted, it seems, and the end  screen never loads, so Matt had to use the Tape image to complete it - with unlimited lives and save-states, of course!

SO WHAT HAPPENS?: Once you get to the final level and you've done the various tasks, you have  to place all your gold into a large set of scales before you are permitted  entrance through the last door. The final screen is then a brief load away.

The final screen is nice (see above screen shot) but it isn't going to win any graphical accolades.


  • Matt: Not really a great ending.

  • Vinny: Though this ending isn't particularly brilliant, it's satisfactory and is helped by the atmospheric music.

FINAL SAY: It's worth at least one look.

G.E. RATING: 5 / 10
