Description[edit]

Gold Quest II - The Dwarves of Doom is the sequel to Gold Quest. After the three-headed king of dwarves was defeated by Sledgie, he was hit by his curse. Sledgie has to enter the realm of the dead dwarves, to free himself from the curse. There he has to cross 6 new levels, to finally fight against the ghost of the dead dwarf king in the bonus level. Only after he has destroyed the 3 brains, the adventure is solved.

The path to the aim is very difficult. In Gold Quest II also gold and jewels are helpful. This time you cannot only find them on the ground, but also in treasure chests. In the first level Hell of Gold Sledige reaches the realm of the dead. It stretches over two more levels Wizard of Gold and Maze of Gold. From the 4th level Body of Gold you enter the body of the keeper of the underworld. Using the bloodstream in the 5th level Blood of Gold Sledgie finally reaches the brains of the keeper: Brain of Gold. There in the Bonus-level he has to erase the memories to reach his goal.

Design[edit]

... the Wizard of Gold ...
... The 2nd level Wizard of Gold contains elements from the
game Wizard of Wor. The game area and the sprites are
designed similarly ...
... The final boss of this level is an own creation by the
developer: the so-called Wizard of Gold (or magician in a
sweat suit) ...
... The king of the realm of the dead ...
... The end boss of the 4th level Body of Gold appears right
at the beginning of the level: through his face the way leads into
his brain. ...

Uni- and multi-coloured moving sprites on a simple background graphic in all colours of the C64. When moving the pawn, the screen scrolls from bottom to the top. In the 5th level Blood of Gold, the screen scrolls only for the display of the flowing of the blood. The intro and the music were created by Richard Bayliss.

Hints[edit]

Basics:

  • "Dave" and "Sledgie" follow the joystick movements, when pressing fire they shoot into the moving direction.
  • "Dave" (blue) starts with 3 lives, "Sledgie" (green) starts with 5 lives. At the start of the game you need to choose by pressing the fire button on joystick 1 or 2.
  • Shots can also pervade walls.
  • Intermediate bosses do not necessarily need to be defeated, you can also go around them.
  • Unfortunately there is no highscore list, final evaluation or a proper ending in this game.

Solution[edit]

Tips:

  • As in every S.E.U.C.K. game with push-up scrolling the same goes for this game:
    • If necessary only go forwards step by step
    • With this the enemies appear possibly only one after the other and not at the same time
    • Do not shoot all the enemies, but also only avoid some
    • The enemies always react the same at the same point in the game

Cheats[edit]

Richard Bayliss has integrated a trainer mode in Gold Quest II. It can be activated as follows:

  1. LOAD "*",8 from disk
  2. Move the cursor to the upper left corner an type "PUB".
  3. Then start the game some lines below with RUN.


... enter "PUB" in the upper left corner ...
... from now on both players have an endless number of lives ...



Critics[edit]

FXXS: "Solid action for in between... I only miss a highscore list and different tunes per level would be nice... all the same 7 points..."

H.T.W: "Not bad for a SEUCK game. But as already mentioned, a highscore list is obligatory for a shooter."
