“V8, return to base immediately!“. The immortal opening words of Mastertronic’s superb “Added Dimension” game The Last V8. A classy piece of gaming that stood proud in my cheapie-collection of Commodore 64 games. So why on earth did ZZAP!64 magazine give it an overall score of 37%!! Are they on glue or what? My school friends and I played this superb budget title to death and loved every single frustrating moment of it.
Anyway, stuff ZZAP64!… it’s a great game. Here’s the ending…
Finally … BASE is directly ahead!
YOU MADE IT! Cue the Rob Hubbard ending jingle. The End.
HOW WAS IT COMPLETED?: This is another game that I played to death, but unfortunately, to get the game ending I had to use a cheat (good old Action Replay Cartridge).
SO WHAT HAPPENS?: It’s a very short ending sequence, which really doesn’t offer much of a story line. The only real bonus is a snippet remix of the main music that makes up the ending sequence jingle – good old Rob 🙂 Oh, and the words, “YOU MADE IT!” appear on the in-car monitor – wow-wee.
Vinny: It’s an ‘okay’ ending, which could have been worst if it didn’t have the Rob’s music. I know that there isn’t any spare memory left to do anything and so I’m guessing that’s why David Darling didn’t go over the top with this ending.
