Way back in the 90s I read the review of this game AND I was also given an original copy by my friend who didn’t seem to like the game. Because of his lack of enthusiasm, I left the game to stew for 15 years and only decided to play it when Frank Gasking mentioned the game ending.
Was it worth the 15 year wait? …
Our hero gets to rescue his true love, Julie.
A cross-cut effect takes you to …
… The End.
HOW WAS IT COMPLETED?: I CHEATED! Yep, hard to believe, but I did cheat 😉 Actually, I used a level-skip cheat and still had to play through the final level to get the complete end sequence. It was tough, but someone had to do it.
SO WHAT HAPPENS?: Nothing much really … once you have defeated the final bad guy, our hero runs into his lovers arms; the screen has a cross-cut effect and then the final screen appears (see above screen shot).
Unfortunately, the game ending sonix are non-exist and Jonathan Dunn’s musical talents were not called upon to provide some ending atmosphere.
COMMENTS: As game endings go, it isn’t going to win any awards: it’s quick and simple.
FINAL SAY: Take a peek and then take a pee (“.)

G.E. RATING: 4 / 10
