The Evil Dead is a survival horror and adventure game produced by Palace Software for the Commodore 64. A version was also written for the ZX Spectrum but this was never released on its own and eventually appeared free with the Spectrum version of Cauldron. It was the first in a series of Evil Dead themed video games on various platforms.
The game is set at the infamous cabin from the Evil Dead film. The player controls Ash, and must close cabin windows to prevent monsters from entering, while also killing monsters that are already in the cabin.
As the player defeats monsters with various weapons (shovels, shotguns, and axes), Ash's energy level decreases. Ash must continuously pick up new weapons in order to increase his energy. Once he has defeated all the monsters, Ash must obtain The Book of the Dead and destroy it in order to defeat the evil.
