Okay – so we gave you the ending to On The Farm. Then we followed it up with On The Farm 2. This time it’s the turn of… you’ve guessed it… On The Farm 3…
On The Farm part 3 is a fun arcade game that has you taking on the role of a frantic, cack-maniac seagull who’s task is to defend the grass from the hungry sheep by shatting on them from above. There are various obstacles to avoid as this game takes you through 20 levels of farm animal frolics. The feel and look of the game is very much like its previous versions, and so there’s a possibility that the ending will also follow suit…
HOW WAS IT COMPLETED?: Inge used a level skip cheat to get to the end, but I went for the quick and easy approach:
Load and start the game
Freeze it using an Action Replay Cart
Press ‘M’ for MONITOR and enter the following codes into the following locations:
– $00 into $0078
– $00 into $0079
– $12 into $007a
Unfreeze the game and it will complete the level, and wait for you to press the fire button to start the ending.
SO WHAT HAPPENS?: Once you have completed the final level, the screen clears showing an empty field. All of a sudden, something digs its way upwards through the undergrowth. A mole appears and ponders his next move. Whilst he sits there, a seagull comes flying towards him and lands on his head. The seagull sits and ponders… Suddenly, a herd of rampaging sheep come running towards them and take out the seagull. Revenge at last. The sheep run off the screen and then come back to make up the words ‘THE END’. The ending is accompanied by a Richard Bayliss ending tune.
Vinny: It’s certainly a fun game to play, but I feel there’s a slight dip in the quality of this ending compared to the previous versions. It’s fun to watch and nicely presented, but no improvement. I’ll still give it a respectable 6.5/10.
Inge: The ending is not so good as the two other games in the series.
Andy Vaisey: Well, not as good as the others, but at least there’s ‘something’.
Brendan Phoenix: I agree, better than most other games out there. Nice animated ending and only let down by the fact that it isn’t as good as the first two.
Andrew Fisher: I’m not going to follow the flock and complain about it being worse than the previous endings. I won’t be sheepish, I’ll come right out and say I like the game and ending.
FINAL SAY: Let’s see something different next time, please (“,)
G.E. RATING: 6.5 / 10
