Okay guys and gals, the date is 24 December 2007 and it’s time to go and join in the festive fun. Before we do, let’s have a festive game ending courtesy of C64 programmer, Jon Wells. The game in question comes in the form of a Christmas freebie that appeared with Commodore Zone magazine way back in 1998 (GOSH! was it THAT long ago?). Jon was kind enough to produced this delightful little game for all the Commodore Zone readers, and certainly captured the spirit of Christmas…
HOW WAS IT COMPLETED?: I’ve had this ending for some time, but I think I contacted Jon and asked him for the cheat (something like that).
Also – in 2015 I coded a Hackersoft crazy hack that includes many new features for the game – one of them allowing you to jump straight to the ending!
SO WHAT HAPPENS?: Once the game is complete, an ending screen appears that says, “YOU HAVE FOUND ALL THE 25 GIFTS IN TIME FOR XMAS! SANTA WILL BE PLEASED … WELL DONE FERRIS!!“
COMMENTS: Before I pass any judgement on this ending, let me just clarify a few things:
1. This game was FREE
2. Jon is a very good Virtual Friend of mine
3. It’s CHRISTMAS!
4. The in-game tune is a nice rendition of an Erasure tune
7. I think I’m drunk (“.)
FINAL SAY: Don’t bother. Just go and enjoy Christmas (“,)
