Description of Wrath of The Demon

In early 1990s, Readysoft released a number of animated action games that became instant hits on the Laserdisc platform, although their PC counterparts suffered poor sales in comparison. This is by no means surprising: although these games boast very high production values and excellent animations which are created by Don Bluth Studios, their value as a game is sorely lacking.

These game are little more than PC version of "choose-your-own-adventure" books, in which gameplay is boiled down to choosing an action from multiple choices. PC versions are, naturally, cut-down versions from Laserdisc originals, with many sequences missing altogether. It wasn't until the advent of CD-ROM that Readysoft (now sold to Digital Leisure) started making "deluxe" version of these games and put them on CD-ROM and later DVD.

Treat the games as fun and humorous computer cartoons, but don't expect them to be involving games. If you like any of these disk-based versions, check out the deluxe DVD/CD-ROM versions at Digital Leisure's products page. Excerpt from Rob's original review at CW#3: "A nice side-scrolling action game converted from the Amiga. Similar to the popular Shadow of the Beast by Psygnosis but still a unique game."

Wrath of the Demon is one of the rare titles from Readysoft that wasn't based on Laserdisc arcade game. Well worth a look, especially since it's much more interactive than later bloated "animation extravaganza" that are masqueraded as games. Thumbs up!

I had it, and never got pass the first stage of the game!

Good game. Remind me of "Weird Dream". Control is hard and it's challenging. That's what makes it fun. Using DosBox SVN DAUM with save state helps a lot. Otherwise, it'll be very frustrating.

I remember this was the first game I'd bought where I had a corrupt diskette, and I had to order away for a new copy of the disk from the developers. They sent me one back, and it worked.
