The Rocky Horror Show (ZX Spectrum) 9+
The original ZX Spectrum game of the cult horror comedy stage musical comes to the iPhone, iPod and iPad!
Your beloved Janet (or Brad) has been kidnapped by the evil Dr. Frank'n'Furter who has activated the diabolical Medusa machine to turn her (or him) into stone.
Frank, however, has dismantled the De-Medusa (the only machine that will reverse the petrification process) and has scattered the parts around the castle.
Frankie knows that you will attempt to save your partner, and it amuses him to watch your feeble efforts as you collect the pieces and attempt to activate them!
Time is of the essence as the castle is a disguised space ship and is on final countdown!!!
Frank has a rather strange entourage:
• Riff-Raff, a manic depressive butler
• Magenta, the maid and Riff-Raff's sister
• Columbia, a groupie
• Rocky Horror, a creation
• Eddie, a failed experiment suspended in deep freeze who tends to thaw out occasionally and so needs to be reactivated (also a rocker and boyfriend to Columbia)
Whether or not they are dangerous we'll leave for you to work out.
• Don't go near the bedroom when Frank's about!
• You only have one life, so watch out!
• Most importantly, DON'T DREAM IT, PLAY IT!

Ratings and Reviews
It's looks and feels great but it's physically impossible to get past the beam - the timer is too short. Have compared it with YouTube videos of the original and they have a fraction of a second longer to do it. A Shame really. Would have been 5 stars.
Loved this game as a kid brings back memories playing it again . Controls are a bit slow could do with new update to fix bugs etc.
Brought back memories
It was nice to play this game again, but as already mentioned you can’t get past the beam. An update to fix that is now very over due...
PS the pokes don’t work. Can we get that fixed too, please?
