How many of you remember seeing this superb shoot-em-up for the first time EVER back in 1986? I DO! One of my school chums was the first person in our school to purchase a copy and parade it around the playground (bastard!).

At that time, it was obvious that Andrew Braybrook had created a masterpiece, which still stands its ground today! But what of the game ending? Does it live up to the Andrew Braybrook quality we have begun to expect?


The above end sequence is around 6 screens long!

HOW WAS IT COMPLETED?: Hmmm... not too sure, but I think this one was completed using plenty of cheats :)

SO WHAT HAPPENS?: The ending consists of the player's ship flying off the runway and over the words, "GOOD ZAPPING... TURKEY.". This is then followed by a quick retreat before the whole of the screen starts to crumble away.

COMMENTS:

  • Vinny: It's okay; it isn't brilliant, but it's okay. I'm not too sure that I expected any more than what the ending actually is. It would have been nice to have had an epilogue, and an ending tune by Steve Turner.

FINAL SAY: Get it over and done with and then move on.

G.E. RATING: 6 / 10
