Here’s another of those games that I had never heard of or played until someone sent in the ending (thanks Brendan). I do like the graphics and sonix in this arcade shooter, but the gameplay did become a little tedious towards the end, and – dare I say it – a little boring. All in all a nice game that just about does the job. So what of the ending…
HOW WAS IT COMPLETED?: It looks like Brendan cheated big time!
SO WHAT HAPPENS?: Once the final boss is defeated, and thumping ending tune kicks in along with the ending message: “CONGRATULATIONS! THE U.N. SQUADRON ARE VICTORIOUS!“
Brendan: Different (and worse) ending to the arcade original – congratulations message and a quite funky ditty boost the marks up a bit. 3/10.
Vinny: Hmmmm… there really is nothing to this ending. The only thing worth scoring is the cool tune, which seems to be unique to the ending. I’d give this 2/10.
FINAL SAY: Should have been so much more!
G.E. RATING: 2.5 / 10
