Description

The Neverending Story II is a platform game which is largely based on the movie. The concept is simple: you're Bastian, and are called forth once again by the Childlike Empress to save Fantasia, the Land of Dreams.

The game itself is indeed a platformer where you have to outrun giants (as in the movie) or push them over ledges. With every level you will be awarded with another advancement in the plot, usually a few pages written on a "book".

Trivia

Programmer of the DOS version Ste Cork left following message in one of the game's files:

Another Ste Cork Creation, but what a sod to write!
Don't work for LINEL, it's lousy money, flies everywhere, the whole place stinks of shit - human and cattle -, there's NOTHING to do but work, no TV or anything, no pubs, nowhere to go, no car - despite what he tells you, you're always hungry, 'phoning home costs you nearly all your wages, if you need medical treatment you're in trouble 'cos you're working there without a permit, your wages are late EVERY month.
I could go on but I've only got 640k ram after all.
