The Devil Rides In

STEP RIGHT into a nightmare - with The Devil Rides in for the 16K Spectrum. You must stand alone in your magic circle and brandish your talisman against the various hosts of evil which are ready to destroy you.

Screen one of the game features ghosts and from there you will encounter spiders, little devils, winged demons, skeletons and the Angel of Death. Not only have you to deal with those horrors which cannot get into your protective circle but you also have to dodge the astral lights which can. Contact with the lights or with the boundary of the circle will destroy one of your three lives.

The game is obviously based on the Dennis Wheatley classic The Devil Rides Our and is complete with Angel of Death. It is an original twist to the Space invaders type of program.

The graphics are good but slow and various pieces of demon and astral light are frequently left on the screen, producing an untidy effect. If you like games which are different from the usual adventure or zap 'em formats you will like this one from Carnell Software.
