Description

In this game you play the role of the Doctor from the BBC science fiction program Doctor Who. The story sees you trying to stop the Daleks from invading earth with help from your companions. The gameplay starts with you flying along the sewers of London on a hover platform blasting monsters with your laser. In later levels the gameplay turns to on foot platform jumping and shooting Daleks and Robomen with your sonic screwdriver and grenades. There are three different incarnations of the doctor for you to play as well as three different companions for a second player to play co-operatively.

Trivia

Amiga Power lawsuit

Alternative actually tried to sue Amiga Power magazine as a result of the low score this game got. Their argument was that a group of Doctor Who fans told them it was the best computer game they'd played, so it must be brilliant. Unsurprisingly the case didn't get far.

Extras

The Spectrum version had a free sticker which has a picture of 2 Daleks and Davros with the text "I'VE BEEN EXTERMINATED" on it. There was also a flyer about the D.W.A.S (Doctor Who Appreciation Society) with information on how to become a member.

References

In the London level there is a pub called The Red Lion; this is the most common name for a pub in Britain.
