The Evil Dead, released for the Commodore 64 (and later dual packed with Cauldron for the ZX Spectrum), was the first of the Evil Dead video games.

Gameplay[edit | edit source]

The player controls Ash in the infamous cabin in the woods. Ash must go and block all of the entrances to keep "monsters" from getting in, grabbing weapons, and killing the "monsters" that have already entered the cabin. Ash's health decreases upon killing the "monsters" and can only be increased by obtaining weapons. The weapons in the game consist of a Shovel, Axe, and the Rifle. Upon sealing all the entrances, Ash must find the Book of the Dead and destroy it to get rid of the evil.
