No other fantasy role-playing experience delivers the undiluted horror of WAXWORKS for the IBM PC. Descend into five vast worlds of molten terror, battling over 100 evil denizens that occupy the WAXWORKS. Decaying graveyard ghouls, man-eating plants, bloodthirsty Egyptian priests -- even Jack the Ripper -- are all dying to enter the world of the living with only you in their way. But stand warned: the first-person perspective, VGA color graphics are not for the squeamish. WAXWORKS. It all boils down to terror.

The terror began... When you were eight and your twin brother Alex vanished into the black maze of mine tunnels beneath Vista Forge - the home of your Uncle Boris' demon-filled Waxworks.
Twenty years later... Uncle Boris dies, leaving you his collection of fiendish displays - and the stupefying news that Alex is alive. Possessed by a 500 year old family curse, your brother schemes to resurrect the undead denizens of...
Five blood-soaked worlds of the past, present and future... 19th Century London, ancient Egypt, an abandoned mine shaft, a haunted cemetery and the malevolent chambers of the Waxworks itself.
Your only hope... To save Alex lies in removing the curse of the witch Ixona. And a courage you're not sure you possess.
