User Summary

You take on the role of Richard, a normal guy who finds himself in a very abnormal situation. During the game's opening montage, your girlfriend Allison is transported to hell by a powerful magic incantation. You start the game alone, armed with only a knife, standing outside a telephone booth located in the depths of Hell.

The title screen displays the name of the game as "Richard & Alan's Escape from Hell." In addition to being characters in the game, these are also the names of the game's programmer and artist. The name borrowing went one step further - the biographical writeup on the box notes that the programmer's wife is named Allison, the same as the protagonist's girlfriend.

Back of Box

THIS IS A HELL OF A GAME!

Escape From Hell - even hotter than you imagined!

Tired of "deep" role-playing games that climb down itty-bitty ladders to dungeons a mere 20 or 30 feet underground?

THEN PLUNGE INTO THE DEPTHS OF HELL ITSELF!

Bored with the same old monsters that peasants dreamed up to scare kiddies way back in the dark ages?

CONFRONT THE EVILS OF THE MODERN AGE, FROM HEAVY METAL ROCKERS TO SLEAZOID POLITICIANS!

Can't get excited about orcs, trolls, and half-elves?

HOW ABOUT EASING THE TORMENTS OF A KINKY EVANGELIST OR A SADISTIC PHYS ED TEACHER?
