I love Wizball. No, seriously, I LOVE Wizball. I spent many a late night playing this superb game trying to collect all the correct colour-drops so that I could fill up the cauldrons and complete the game. Finally, after many hours of play, I completed the game ... to find that I had wasted a massive chunk of my life!!!


Ah! the melting pot.


Cool. Level 8 completed. Now where is my reward?


What's going on here? The screen is flashing and I can hear a cat screaming!


WHAT'S GOING ON?! The End.

HOW WAS IT COMPLETED?: I cheated using a cracked version of the game. I also had this map to refer to.

SO WHAT HAPPENS?: Once the wizard mixes his last potion, something strange happens that I just can't describe! Take a look at the ending for yourself and see what I mean :(

COMMENTS:

  • Vinny: I am SERIOUSLY devastated! After spending so long thinking that the game ending was going to be as good as the actual game, I was let down and totally disappointed to find that it is CACK! I want my money back! :) I'm kind of thinking that the programmer ran out of memory space or he just ran out of steam.

  • Kungfufurby: The ending appears to end with fireworks based on the sound, but there's nothing but fancy color changing here for the picture. The ending, therefore, gets a thumbs down.

  • Brendan Phoenix: Great game - still holds up well today, the music is amazing. Just a pity that the end of the game is soooo disappointing. To be honest Sensi did not do many great endings - even on the Amiga (Cannon Fooder ending was disappointing, etc).

  • Andy Vaisey: Loud and flashy. And sadly a touch disappointing.

  • Andrew Fisher: Well, I still think it's one of the best games ever, even if the "end" is disappointing...

FINAL SAY: Nice graphics, but no music and no point to the end! It's a sad ending to an amazing game :(

G.E. RATING: 2 / 10
