Hi,

I see that .mad. put this ROM up on here but was wondering if an ending could be confirmed?
Seems impossible to complete, too.

Cheers

maybe these instructions from the TCS hack help.

INSTRUCTIONS FOR ASSAULT MACHINE
================================
THE ASSAULT MACHINE IS A MASSIVE WEAPON
SYTEM WHICH SOME NASTY MEN (OR WOMEN
FOR ALL YOU FEMENISTS OUT THERE!) ARE
BUILDING. YOU HAVE BEEN SENT TO DESTROY
THE ASSAULT MACHINE BEFORE IT IS FULLY
OPERATIONAL. ALL YOU HAVE TO HELP YOU
ARE 3 ATMOSPHERE CRAFT AND 4 SEARCH
DROIDS.

GAME OBJECTIVE
--------------

DESTROY ALL TEN ISLANDS.
USE THE SEARCH DROIDS TO SEARCH EACH
ISLAND AND REVEAL ITS TARGETS. USE THE
ATMOSPHERE CRAFT TO FERRY YOUR DROIDS
FROM ISLAND TO ISLAND AND AS BOMBERS
WHEN TARGETS ARE REVEALED.
DESTROYING ISLANDS BUYS YOU TIME.


DELIVERING AND RETRIEVING DROIDS
--------------------------------

TO BEGIN, USE MAP MODE. USE JOYSTICK IN
PORT 2 TO TARGET AN ISLAND THEN PRESS
FIRE. EXIT, AND SELECT LAUNCH MODE. IF
YOU ARE CARRYING A DROID FROM BASE TO
AN ISLAND, SELECT THE DROIDS NAME AND
PRESS FIRE.

IF YOU ARE GOING TO RECOVER A DROID,
SELECT TARGET MODE. USE THE JOYSTICK
TO SELECT THE DROID OF YOUR CHOICE AND
PRESS FIRE. THE CURSOR WILL SHOW YOU
WHICH ISLAND THE DROID IS SEARCHING,
PRESS FIRE TO MAKE ISLAND THE TARGET.
EXIT AND SELECT LAUNCH MODE. IF YOU ARE
GOING TO RETRIEVE A DROID, SELECT EMPTY
AS THE PILOTS NAME. NOW SEE LAUNCHING
ATMOSPHERE CRAFT.

WHEN YOU REACH THE ISLAND THE SCREEN
FLIPS TO AN OVERVIEW OF THE LANDSCAPE.
GUIDE THE CRAFT TO THE DROP ZONE WHERE
IT DESCENDS TO DELIVER OR RETRIEVE A
DROID. TASK ACHIVED THE CRAFT TAKES
OFF. GUIDE IT BACK OUT TO SEA TO A
POINT WHERE YOU RE-ENTER TARGET MODE.
NOW YOU CAN TAGET THE CRAFT BACK TO
BASE OR ONTO ANOTHER ISLAND (TO PICK UP
ANOTHER DROID OR BOMB TARGETS) IF YOU
HAVE ENOUGH FUEL.


CONTROLS FOR THIS BIT!
----------------------

JOSTICK LEFT/RIGHT = MOVE LEFT/RIGHT
UP/DOWN = FASTER/SLOWER
FIRE = BLASTER.


LAUNCHING ATMOSPHERE CRAFT
--------------------------

TO LAUNCH CRAFT PLUS DROID, FIRST
SELECT A TARGET ISLAND IN MAP MODE.
THEN SELECT LAUNCH MODE. USE THE JOY
TO SELECT THE DROID AND PRESS FIRE.
