Agent X II is a three part game by Mastertronic. This budget game was one of the few that I completed as a kid. I couldn’t remember the ending, so I thought I’d give it another bash a few decades later. You need passwords to access the levels which are given at the end of each level. The final level is a breakout/arkanoid clone where the evil professor sits high above you amongst the coloured bricks. You have to destroy the blocks to expose a small gap at the top of the wall that protects the evil professor. Once you rebound the ball into this hole, the game is complete. Overall, you can’t really complain about this game. It’s three mini games for a few quid. The graphics and sound are good too, so it was a worthwhile purchase back in the days of it’s release.
HOW WAS IT COMPLETED?: I simply played it through. I reduced the emulation speed on the last level to make it a bit easier. Took a while though.
SO WHAT HAPPENS?: Once you have completed level three, you get a black screen with some red writing. The writing reads ‘CONGRATULATIONS AGENT X. YOU HAVE SAVED THE WORLD.‘ The game then ends.
COMMENTS: Absolute rubbish. I should have remembered this one.
FINAL SAY: Very dull ending. The game was multiload, so they could have put an ending in there. Waste of time this one.
