Before I start the review, I’d like to point out two things: 1. this was the first ever ending I added to this site, 2. I live, breathe and sleep Doctor Who! Don’t ask me who my favourite Doctor is because I love them all 🙂
Moving on. This game got a mixed reception from both UK magazines: a slating from Commodore Format and a healthy result from Zzap 64. I certainly enjoyed this enjoyable platform game anyway.
After a fairly good game, were we going to be treated to a fairly good ending? Well…. not quite, but its better than nothing I suppose.
HOW WAS IT COMPLETED?: Hmmm… not too sure, but I think Frank cheated 🙂
SO WHAT HAPPENS?: Once the doctor has completed his quest, the words “WELL DONE” appear on the screen. It then goes black and a new screen appears with an ending tune and an image of Davros and the Doctor amongst some twinkling stars. The ending message reads: “WE HAVE FOILED YOUR EVIL PLAN. THE TIMELORDS WILL ENSURE YOU NEVER THREATEN THE UNIVERSE AGAIN.”
Vinny: This isn’t a particularly great ending and could have been so much better. An epilogue and some animation would have gone down well.
FINAL SAY: Take a very quick peek.
G.E. RATING: 5 / 10
