Rocky Interactive Horror Show, The On-Line Entertainment Ltd. 1999

One of the best cult classic films ever made based on the theatrical smash hit of the same name, The Rocky Horror Show is undoubtedly one of the most remarkable worldwide media phenomena in the last 20 years. This campy rock and roll story of boy meets girl meets alien transvestite from another world has been turned into a game, which unfortunately received much less attention than the film. The basic premise is similar - a couple of clean-cut American teenagers, the kind you'd find in any fifties B-movie or sitcom, find themselves at the castle of one Frank N Furter, an alien transvestite mad scientist, and his strange servant. But differently, Brad and Janet are separated before they step through the door - with one of the pair being kidnapped by Dr Furter, taken inside the house, and turned to stone using the Medusa Machine. Playing as Brad or Janet, you have to enter the house and de-medusaize and rescue your petrified partner and make it out of the house before it turns into a spaceship, taking you to the planet of Transsexual, Transylvania, to a fate worse than every other fate you could think of. You have only half an hour, in real time, in which to accomplish this. In order to make good your escape, you have to solve a number of puzzles while avoiding the residents of the castle who will rip your clothes off or blast you in the face given half the chance. If you do get blasted, then you lose about five minutes from the half an hour you have to escape the castle (time can be made up by picking up the red lips scattered around the house) and have to make your way out the medical room. Escape largely entails taking objects from one area of the castle, and using them elsewhere, giving you another object to use in another room, and so on. The puzzles are slightly unusual - you can expect to have to deal with a biker in the castle's freezer, activate an Elvis Bot, demonstrate your Timewarping abilities and tackle many other off-beat problems, which require both logical thinking and imagination to beat. As well as exciting and original gameplay, the game features a host of unreleased 70's tracks and exciting 90's remixes to go along with the action. Fans will be happy to hear that the game is very faithful to the film, featuring all the offbeat humor fans have come to know and love, including Richard O'Brien as the Game devil and Christopher Lee as the narrator. Special rerecorded soundtrack, video sequences, and over 60 locations to explore make it a fun romp that will take you some time to finish.
