How many of you remember seeing this superb shoot-em-up for the first time EVER back in 1986? I DO! One of my school chums was the first person in our school to purchase a copy and parade it around the playground (bastard!).
At that time, it was obvious that Andrew Braybrook had created a masterpiece, which still stands its ground today! But what of the game ending? Does it live up to the Andrew Braybrook quality we have begun to expect?
HOW WAS IT COMPLETED?:
Kenz: Hmmm… not too sure, but I think this one was completed using plenty of cheats 🙂
Vinny: I coded a crazy hack, which you can download above.
SO WHAT HAPPENS?: The ending consists of the player’s ship flying off the runway and over the words, “GOOD ZAPPING… TURKEY“. This is then followed by a quick retreat before the whole of the screen starts to crumble away.
Vinny: It’s okay; it isn’t brilliant, but it’s okay. I’m not too sure that I expected any more than what the ending actually is. It would have been nice to have had an epilogue, and an ending tune by Steve Turner.
FINAL SAY: Get it over and done with and then move on.
G.E. RATING: 6 / 10
