I think Yeti is probably the biggest rip-off clone of a game that I’ve ever seen. It’s Exolon with different graphics. I’d never seen this one before, but decided to get to the end of it to find out if there was an ending worth seeing. The idea is the same as Exolon – you have to blast you way through the levels to reach the end.
HOW WAS IT COMPLETED?: Using an infinite lives cheat.
SO WHAT HAPPENS?: When you reach the final screen, you see the yeti standing there. As you approach him, a new screen of the captured yeti is displayed. You then get to enter your name into the high score table and the game restarts.
Neil: There’s no animation or much else to be excited about. Don’t waste your time. Try something else. 3/10.
Vinny: Never heard of this game. I did check it out and I can see exactly what Neil means when he says it’s an Exolon rip-off!
As for the ending, it’s just a sub-standard game ending that provides no entertainment to the game player. I’d score it a 2/10. There’s nothing really to it.
Brendan Phoenix: Seem to remember this being quite big on the Speccy – never played it though. Also sort of remember the rubbish drawings on the advert in the computer mags.
Never played this one though. Ending is pretty rubbish to be honest.
Kungfufurby: This ending can get a 0.5/10 out of me, because that picture is the worst picture-with-no-text ending that I’ve ever seen. Wish there was some quality done with the picture… maybe some text?
Andy Vaisey: Pah…
FINAL SAY: Not the best. I didn’t expect much from this Exolon clone.
G.E. RATING: 2.5 / 10
