I've got to be honest here: I purchased this game back in 1988, but after loading it and spending a frustrating 10 minutes fumbling around, I decided that it just wasn't for me. It's one of those games that looks and sounds okay, but plays like a bucket full of tripe! Brendan deserves a medal for putting up with this game and actually playing through to the end!

The End!

HOW WAS IT COMPLETED?: Brendan used an infinite blood cheat :-)

SO WHAT HAPPENS?: Once you have killed your final victim, all the crucifix's start flashing and the words 'WELL DONE THE CURSE IS LIFTED' appear. There is an end game ditty.


  • Brendan: Boy was this difficult, even with an infinite blood cheat! Problem being the police would throw you in jail if you were a werewolf and you lose all your items. Also, there was no walkthrough available anywhere! Fortunately, I managed to map it myself and realised what I had to do. Not as difficult as Frankenstien Jnr - but approaching it! I also had to restart the game after it started being buggy towards the end.

    The aim of the game is to eight members of the family that cursed you - every time you get a kill, a crucifix appears at the bottom of the screen. I was trapped on 7 for ages!

    I read on some speccy forums that this game is impossible to complete, and that it crashes when you kill the final person - I am glad to report that the C64 version does have an ending.

    There is an end game ditty, whilst not great, is much better than the in-game tune I had to endure. 2/10.

  • Vinny: Arrrgh! This game is an absolute pig to complete! But saying that, there is a little more to the ending than I actually expected! I thought we would get the boring old 'WELL DONE' text and that's it; but it appears that there is a specific ending tune, which I quite like, and also some crazy sprite 'animation'. I think it deserves 3/10.

  • Andrew Fisher: Viz Design was a very short-lived label from Ariolasoft and this reminds me of another of their games, Bride of Frankenstein. I suppose you could make a joke and say the ending is a bit of a dog. But even that is overplaying it.

  • Kungfufurby: The ending is a whimper in comparison to what it could have been... at least it has a unique ending tune.

FINAL SAY: The game is pants and the ending is trousers!

G.E. RATING: 2.5 / 10
