Jeremiah B. Sterne decides to go out to his uncles cabin in the woods, to get some relaxation and work on his latest novel.
But late in the night, as he writes about the horrors in the dark, something comes through the front door! A thing from his nightmares! So he quickly kills it with his axe and locks the door, when behind him the backdoor opens to let in another beast! He launches at it, kills it and locks the door - when he hears a click from the frontdoor.
You control Jeremiah in the oneroom cabin. On the left and right sides there are two doors that lets monsters in, you need to kill them with your axe. After a killing you need to close the door, otherwise more monsters will keep getting in. There is a delay before the door opens to let monsters in again.
Tentacles will be reaching forward through the windows at the top and bottom of the screens also, they are slow and retracts when hit, you can’t lock the windows. The monsters are strange. Some are like spiders, some are like ooze and some are like octopuses.
If you get hit by any monster you loose a life. You have three lives, you get no extra. There is no score, but a timer on how long you can survive. It gets harder and harder the longer you survive, no levels.
