Jason is hiding in the forest, waiting to avenge his mother's death, when a party of teenagers visit the eerie Crystal Lake holiday camp close to the killer's filthy grotto. Jason puts on his hockey mask and sharpens his machete, ready for a razor-edges massacre.

Ten of your friends are lose in the surroundings of Crystal Lake. Jason is out there to hunt them down. It's up to you to find him and kill him before he kills you. Luckily there are a lots of weapons to be found in the scenery, ranging from small knives to chainsaws. Unfortunately Jason is looking like a normal player until he attacks or is attacked. So it's up to you to identify him and end the nightmare by killing Jason. Depending on the number of friends surviving you'll get bonus points just to start over again with a different character.

Fake blood

Each copy contained 2 capsules with fake blood, which originally was red sugared water.


The original Domark releases for the Commodore 64 and Amstrad contained a Horror-Sound competition. The first five entries that correctly identified the ten sounds heard while holidaying at Crystal Lake would win a Eureka colour monitor.
