• Completed & Reviewed by Vinny Mainolfi

I first played this game as a challenge against one of my school friends to see who could complete it first. I spent many an hour playing it to death and I can proudly say that I completed it WITHOUT cheats. Yes - that's right... WITHOUT cheats ;) Unfortunately, my school friend beat me to it and completed the game a few weeks before me! In fact - he was the one who told me what to do to complete the game!

As for the actual game itself... there's a large map, some basic sprites, bloody annoying music; but for me, it's still fun to play and explore. It's a pity that ZZAP!64 magazine only gave it 60%...


The Princess is finally safe. The End.

HOW WAS IT COMPLETED?: Back in the day I completed it without cheats. Today - I have coded a crazy hack version of the game that gives you 25 extra in-game features - one of which is the ending :) Grab you copy of the crazy hack from the Hackersoft Web site (www.hackersoft.co.uk) and head for the Crazy Hacks page.

SO WHAT HAPPENS?: Once you have grabbed the key, rescued the Princess, and then back to the boat, a 'WELL DONE' appears.

COMMENTS:

  • Vinny: When I first completed this, I was elated by the fact that I had actually finished the game! Looking at it now I can see that it isn't impressive whatsoever and a total let down.
  • Brendan Phoenix: Really great cheapo title, yes the ending is rubbish, but the trip in getting there was great. remembering the maze, etc.
  • Andy Vaisey: Andy hates...
  • Andrew Fisher: Never been a big fan of the game, to be honest - even at a budget price it didn't grab me. And after all that the least they could have done was put in a Willow Pattern bitmap picture (i.e. in the white & blue colours we in the West know as Willow Pattern...)

FINAL SAY: I thought it was an amazing ending... and then I grew up!

G.E. RATING: 1.5 / 10
