I’m a big fan of Jason’s work and I actually own an original copy of this SEU game, which is published by Cronosoft (keep up the good work). Jason really has a great eye for design and is a skilled Commodore 64 programmer. He’s also the writer for the Homebrew section in Retro Gamer magazine.
So what of the game ending to Warflame…
Nothing left but dust particles.
HOW WAS IT COMPLETED?: Not too sure if Jason played his own game or if he just sent in the ending.
SO WHAT HAPPENS?: The ending starts with a star field and then a planet comes in to view. Our hero’s ship is seen leaving the planet and then rushes by. At this point, the planet explodes and turns to dust. The actual ending screen appears with numerous spinning ships and colourful text that reads: “OH WOW! WHAT A HERO! I BET HE DRINKS CURLING BLACK LABEL. SHREADDY WHEAT? HE EATS THE WHOLE BOX!“. The ending is accompanied by a tune by Marc Francois.
Vinny: I’m seriously impressed with this ending – as I am with the game. Jason knows how to keep his punters happy, and this ending sequence does the trick. It may be a little light on the epilogue, but is certainly gives the feeling of completion. I love the ending tune 🙂
FINAL SAY: A great one to watch (“,)
G.E. RATING: 8 / 10
