View full history
A few months after the events of Army of Darkness Ash
begins to have nightmares filled with visions of "Deadites" and other beings of the Necronomicon
. Ash and his girlfriend, Jenny, decide to return to the cabin
in the woods
where the whole Evil Dead ordeal
began to try and end the nightmares. Once there Ash runs into his possessed hand that he had previously lobbed off. The hand turns on the tape recorder
with the incantation
to make the Deadites rise and all hell breaks loose. Ash must find the pages
of the Necronomicon to send the Deadites back "once-and-for-all".
Evil Dead: Hail to the King plays very much like an early Resident Evil
game with the real-time action happening over pre-rendered and fixed camera
scenes. Ash is controlled much like a tank
with the left and right directions turning him rapidly and the forward and back moving him backwards.
Combat involves the use of melee weapons and ranged weapons to kill the various Deadites that appear. One of the buttons on the controller is reserved for taunting
with Ash's catchphrases such as "Come get some!"
