Hi,

Vestron is a game from my childhood which I never played fully through back then (too difficult back then Shocked! ), but recently I have revisited it through emulation and after some practice I can now quite easily play through the levels.

BUT, now I found out that after going through the last level (the maze where you need to go to the crystal in the bottom left) getting the end message it will restart the game at the first level but with higher difficulty, i.e. there's this pink thing that will come after you. BUT!! whatever you do you'll die after some 10 seconds without touching anything!

I've tried all versions available and they all have the same bug. I seriously think that this is a bug that even plagued the official release.

Is there anyone that remembers Vestron and remembers this?

I just tried it: you die if the pink think hits an enemy... so avoid that? And it was already such an impossible game to play!

OMG, it never dawned on me that could be the case.... I now officially hate Hardip Mothada!! Thanks for finding this out though, and I was so sure there was a bug... LOL!

The game is carrying the subtitle "The Impossible Mission" more than worthy now, that's for sure. I'm afraid this is going to cost me a few more rainy days. Who else is going to save the earth from the Amstradian Empire! Big smile

A few levels up with this purple thing it becomes really impossible. After several attempts I gave up there...
Hardip is on LinkedIn, by the way Tongue
