To be honest with you, I’d never played this game, and it was only because Inge Pedersen sent me the ending that I bothered having a look at it.
The game itself is a nice and simple arcade adventure, maze type, shoot-em-up kind of game that involves you running around a large maze in search of… erm… well I’m not too sure. Anyway – the game itself is very much of the same standard as many of the arcade adventure games of that era and is certainly pleasant enough to play. I doubt very much the ending is going to be anything exciting…
Jump on the grey guy to complete the game.
The End.
HOW WAS IT COMPLETED?: Inge got bored and so he hacked the ending (“,)
SO WHAT HAPPENS?: Once you’ve carried out all the tasks and collected all the items, you touch the bad-looking dude and the ending screen appears, which reads: “YOU HAVE CONQUERED THE DARK FORCES WHICH HAVE DESECRATED THE LANDS. THE PEOPLE THANK YOU FOR THEIR FREEDOM. WE DON’T KNOW HOW YOU DID IT! YOU MUST BE INCREDIBLY GOOD! WRITE AND TELL US!
Vinny: Yep – just as I thought. A substandard ending with a simple static screen of text. Boooooooring. Next!
Brendan Phoenix: Is it too late to write in?
Andrew Fisher: Steve Bak… That name’s a real blast from the past, and the game reminds me of Willow Pattern. But cry havoc and let slip a terrible rating for that ending.
FINAL SAY: A substandard and very boring ending. Zzzzzz zzz  zz   z   z

G.E. RATING: 0.5 / 10
