If you soak up the demo with the 'story so far' scrolling by and the morbid organ music (sounds like an undertaker having a rave up - quite good) then yes, the game does have atmosphere. But skip the intro and it's just another maze game with a dash of spice. Don't expect chunks of flesh or buckets of blood. (...) The sound effects are o.k. while the action is average: ignore the hype. Likely to prove interesting to ace maze travelers.

A fair amount of strategy is involved in this game. You have to know which windows to close, which doors to open or leave shut, and which weapons to pick up. The screen scrolls from room to room quite smoothly and the sound effects for Ashley's feverish footsteps are good. Ik liked the sounds for the slamming doors and windows too. Overall a very playable game (...).

The battle to avoid dismemberment is fast and furious, and overall Evil Dead is an excellent debut from Palace Software. Great spooky Gothic music too.
