Monsters In Hell
By Softek
Spectrum 16K

Published in Home Computing Weekly #20

Hell's flames flicker at the foot of the screen, whilst above, various floors are linked with ladders.

Equipped only with a hammer, you set out to break holes in the floors and consign the monster chasers to the flames.

But the monsters are only your first problem. After 25 of them, the Mad Monk sends Ghouls, and after 10 of them he sends clones of himself. After 65 kills he sends his Demons and you certainly won't survive them (After all, this is supposed to be Hell!)

You do have a certain amount of help in the form of Holy Power, which is renewable at the sign of the cross, and nine lives.

I have to admit that I didn't get beyond the initial Vampire Monsters. I wanted to face the clones and so on, but I just wasn't fast enough, and hereby lies my biggest grouse. Why no variable speed setting?
