Playing a thoroughly drab, mundane and predictable character, your aim is to become interesting enough to reach the Pleasuredome. After discovering a gruesome murder, your interest in something greater than the routine of 80s Liverpool is awoken.

You explore the streets and houses in the search of a way out. The main basis of the game involves picking up objects and using them in the correct way - most objects have more than one potential use, and misusing them is the only way the game can be lost. There are several sub-games along the way, including shoot 'em ups, a maze and a jigsaw puzzle.

Banned single

The band the game was named after, hit the headlines and made them a huge success in 1984 with a banned single. The single that came with the game Relax was banned by the BBC in 1984 after complaints by Radio One DJ Mike Read who took offence to the singles cover and the lewd lyrics. This prompted the record to sell in huge amounts and took the record to Number One in the UK Singles Chart and stayed there for five weeks.


The game comes with a second audio tape, containing an exclusive live mix of the band's hit single Relax.
