Dead 13 is basically a clone of Dragon's Lair, the arcade laser disc game that
cost us a small fortune in the eighties.
You play the part of Lance a
computer repair man who is called out by Dr Neurosis to fix his new super
computer Brain Dead 13.
Unknown to Lance the computer is complete apart
from one vital element - a human brain. Once a brain is connected to the
computer it will be capable of taking over the world and Lance just happens to
fit the requirements.
There now follows a game of cat and mouse
throughout the castles many rooms. The game contains clear and detailed cartoon
graphics that have a touch of class about them.
The gameplay on the
other hand is so frustrating with Lance being continually killed off, meaning
that the game must be re-started over and over again. This is apparently the
only reason that the game will last a long time - that's if you don't switch off
and give up long before the end.
