Wirehead has the player controlling Ned Hubbard, a man with a wireless controller implanted in his brain, via the joypad.

The bad guys are chasing after Ned for his "mind implant", and of course, the only way to get it is to open his head. Reminiscent of Dragon's Lair, a path opens up, and the player has to choose the right direction, otherwise Ned will be killed.

The sets and locations include real-life chase sequences and stunts that take the player through areas like the Queen Mary, a saloon fight, an airplane, a water raft, multiple car chases, and even wrestling with a bear.

Track 02 is the only redbook audio track on the disc, and it's a 14 second clip of a siren and a voice saying "code monkeys" at a slowed to increasing pitch. This is likely inspired by Digital Pictures' "Number Nine" redbook track #02 on their games.
