Seeing that we have the endings to Dan Dare 1 & 2, it was only right to add the ending to the final instalment: Dan Dare 3 – The Escape.
I’ll be honest here: I have never played the game and I only saw the last few seconds of it because I used a cool trainer version that gave me no end of cheats – and more importantly, it got me to the end 🙂
HOW WAS IT COMPLETED?: As mentioned above, I used a trainer version of the game and cheated all the way to the end. Quality 🙂
SO WHAT HAPPENS?: Not much, apart from a strange sound effect just before the final epilogue appears. The epilogue reads: “WELL DONE STAR FIGHTER! YOU JUMPED BACK INTO YOUR MK 2 F 16 ASTRA POD ENGAGED SUPRA THRUSTERS AFTERBURNERS ON. YOU BLASTED STRAIGHT INTO THE SHUT BAT DOORS! MY GOD! WHAT A MESS! THE FUEL IS EVERYWHERE! I’LL CLEAN IT UP! YOU GO AND FIND MORE FUEL. ARE YOU FERGUS?“.
COMMENTS: I have got no idea what this ending is about! Even with the epilogue, I just don’t get it 😦
FINAL SAY: Yawn.
G.E. RATING: 1 / 10
