CP Verlag certainly released some classy Commodore 64 titles back in the early nineties…
Radax is a typical shoot-em-up arcade game and it’s obvious there’s an element of SEUCK being used to create the game – which is neither good or bad. It’s a polished game that’s wrapped up in some nice sonics by Jeroen Kimmel.
As an additional observation, judging by the loading screen, the game was originally created in 1988 for Firebird, but was finally released in 1990 by CP Verlag. I’m sure there’s a story there 🙂
Anyway – an addictive game, but does it have a worthy ending…
So close…
The end is in sight…
The End.
HOW WAS IT COMPLETED?: Looks like Gaz cheats! Tut-tut… 😉
SO WHAT HAPPENS?: Once the final level is complete, your ship flies off the screen and the ending screen appears with the words: “CONGRATULATIONS. YOU HAVE FOUND YOUR HOMESHIP. THE RADAX STORY IS OVER NOW!!!” This is accompanied by an ending ditty.
Vinny: The ending is tidy and clean. There’s a short message, some sprites and a nice ending ditty to polish it off. There could have been more to the ending, but it’s good enough. 5/10 from me.
Andrew Fisher: Hmm, it ends well certainly.
Andy Vaisey: Aye, not bad. Not great, seen better, but not bad.
Gaz Spence: A very typical SEU which provides some standard blasting action and a nice musical score. The end screen is just about the best one could expect within the context of the game.
FINAL SAY: For what it is, the ending is satisfying enough… just!

G.E. RATING: 5 / 10
