BackgroundTwenty years after your twin brother Alex disappeared into the mine tunnels beneath Vista Forge, you discover that not only is he still alive, but he's been possessed and has plans to unleash on the world the horror of undead villains culled from history. You begin your quest in the Waxworks found in your recently deceased Uncle Boris' stone mansion. Your quest is to find, confront and defeat these evil scourges so that you can free your brother from his demented intentions caused by a 500 year old family curse cast by the witch Ixona. Not only will you face the perils of the Waxworks themselves, but you'll have to deal with Jack the Ripper from 1888 London, explore the Great Pyramid of Egypt to rescue a princess, fight a giant mutant flesh-eating plant in a dangerous iron mine and battle the Necromancer and his minions in an eerie graveyard. Waxworks uses a point and click icon-based interface with keyboard inputs required in certain areas and contains a subtle hint option in the guise of a Crystal Ball that allows you to contact the kind spirit of your dead uncle.
