After the initial success of Dragon's Lair creating the Full Motion Video Adventure genre for video games its successor and spin-offs including Space Ace offered little innovation to the gameplay. As a late arrival Brain Dead 13 reworked the genre with a simple refreshing approach, infinite lives and multiple ways to die! This addition to the games mechanic removed the frustration typically associated with these games and served up a fun and varied gaming experience. See the video below for a few examples of the multiple deaths and resurrections inflicted upon the games hero Lance Galahad pushing the boundaries of cartoon violence to the limit! Although it is still the same point or click type of a game the multiple death and resurrection screens makes it more varied than its counterparts without a doubt. The video below was originally posted by Le Monde du CD-i, a french CD-i website which has been offline since October 2007. Let's all hope their team (Omegalfa recently visited us again, so he's still in touch) will put it online again soon!
