App Description

This classic ZX Spectrum game is now available for the iPhone, iPod touch and iPad!

*** This game is also available as part of the Spectaculator, ZX Spectrum Emulator app (as an in-app purchase) ***

Have you got what it takes to build your very own monster?

THE SETTING:
Professor F.N. Stein's laboratory in his Castle in the Black Forest.

THE TIME:
1884

THE GAME:
50 Screens requiring timing, logic and planning to complete.

THE OPPOSITION:
Too many to list here, but featuring: snails, bats, ice (it makes you slip!), firemen's poles, man-eating pumpkins, spiders, slime (it slows you down), caterpillars, tanks, spring, light bulbs (they electrocute you), mice, lobsters, snakes, bumble bees, jack-in-the-box, etc.

THE OBJECT:
As you know, all the best monsters are hand built. Prof. Stein's life-long ambition has always been to build his own monster - but first he needs all the bits!

You guide him around the dungeon picking up the bones - make sure you get the right order - then activate him by throwing the switch - the longer you take to complete each screen the higher will be the charge you give him - and the angrier he will become - so watch out!

WHAT THE PRESS SAID IN 1984!

"This is definitely among the best of platform games for some time. Addictive and great fun to play."
    - Crash Magazine

"...the game [is] exciting, intelligent, fun to play with faultless graphics and sound. A must."
    - ZX Computing
