Although we received a boxed copy of this game, it has the look and feel of a preview disc. The sound is glitchy and the controls unmanageable. The cartoony graphics are the only highlight. Braindead 13 is nowhere near as good as Dragon's Lair or Space Ace, which it tries to emulate.

From the ReadySoft crew that brought you Space Ace comes another animated adventure. The star of this graphic adventure is Lance, a computer repair guru. Things get strange for Lance when he's called to Dr. Nero Neurosis' castle late one night. After he fixes the mad doctor's computers, Lance learns of the doctor's plan to dominate the world. In order to stop the doc, Lance has to search for the Chamber of the Brain. Along the way, he must evade Fritz, a half-human, halfpet who's been instructed to destroy him. The demented castle holds all kinds of other surprises, including campy monsters like FrankenJock and Draculette. Brain Dead 13 boasts orchestrated digital sound and breathtaking car-toon-style animation.
Interactive video-game cartoons have come a long way since the first Dragon's Lair. ReadySoft's latest addition to its line of adventures features the same thrills and spills common to this style of game. Unlike other versions, longer, multiple paths are available so players really can choose their own adventure.
Wearing the shoes of Lance, a hip computer repair dude, you have come across the sinister plot of Dr. Nero Neurosis while repairing his broken machine. Now you are in a race to escape from a fortress full of mutants and mishaps of science.
The graphic quality and clarity of Brain Dead 13 is outstanding. The cartoon intro is strikingly similar to the action in the game, making it hard to distinguish between the video and the play areas where you are expected to react. Don't move too slowly, however, or the doctor's minions will home in on you and kill you in some disgusting manner.
Like the previous versions though. Lance's reactions stay the i same and are nothing more than just A scheduled reflexes of what button to push and when. If you get stuck in one area of the game, the repetitive death sequences can get on your nerves in a hurry as you watch Lance get torn apart over and over again.
This game is impressive eye candy, grabbing nearly everyone's attention who is in contact with it. The action is fast and will take many tries to learn what to do in certain situations. Unlimited lives and the save feature allow you to quickly get into the game and constantly progress without failing. Any way you look at it, Brain Dead 13 is the ideal game to add to any cartoon fanatic s game collection.
