Monty on the Run

You are Monty. Collect gold coins and objects that either help or hinder you as you make your way to freedom. Choose the following five items for your freedom kit before you start. Push LEFT or RIGHT in the list and push DOWN to select: 02, 04, 12, 13 and 16. Good luck.


Super fit and desperate for freedom, Monty makes his daring escape from Scudmore Prison. Hounded by the bastions of law and order, our frightened hero finds refuge with the criminal underworld who offer him his chance of freedom. Moving from “safe house” to hideout to underground lair, Monty must select the correct five elements of his freedom kit from the many he’s offered and not miss out on the hidden gold coins that will make him a mole of leisure. Once free, can he make the ferry in time?

Monty, having escaped from prison and how superfit so that he can somersault, must make his way to freedom through many hideous and secret locations. To successfully complete his journey he has been offered a freedom kit with 21 items in it, only the correct five will get him through. In addition, there are gold coins to collect on the way, plus some other objects that will help or hinder (you’ll only find out if you try them!).

General Tips for Object Selection

Don’t worry too much about selecting the freedom kit. There will come a point in the game where you will go no further but it looks as if you should. At that point take careful note of where you are, restart the game and select the item from the freedom kit that will help you on your way!

HINT: Read the game information on THEC64 console itself for which items to take 
with you!
