The Manos: The Hands of Fate wiki last edited by artx on 11/12/14 12:25PM View full history


Manos: The Hands of Fate is a platformer with a retro art-style that was developed by FreakZone Games for mobile Android and iOS devices and the PC. It is loosely based on the 1966 film Manos: The Hands of Fate, which gained notoriety as the subject of an episode of the television series Mystery Science Theater 3000. The film has come to be known as one of the worst ever made.


As in the film, Michael, a husband and father, becomes lost while driving on country back-roads with his wife Margaret and daughter Debbie. They stop at a mysterious lodge where they encounter the caretaker Torgo, who informs them that "the Master" is away. When the family chooses to stay at the lodge for the night, they become trapped by the Master, who has diabolical plans for them all.

The game casts the player in the role of Michael, who, armed with a pistol, must explore a series of stages with locations and figures pulled from the movie until the final confrontation with the Master. The player can extend Michael's life gauge by collecting "Hands of Fate." The game has two different endings; the ending seen depends on whether or not all of the Hands of Fate are collected before the game's end. If the player fails to collect all of the hands, the ending is similar to that of the movie. However, if all of the hands are collected, a humorously anticlimactic happy ending is earned instead.
