Gameplay

Clash at Demonhead is an open-ended platformer. The player takes control of Billy "Big Bang" Blitz, who is capable of running, jumping, and shooting. He is initially armed with a handgun, though various upgrades can be purchased from a shop. He later gains the ability to perform various powers by collecting Force, including shrinking, teleportation to previously-visited areas, flight, healing, and invincibility.[1] The player chooses levels from a world map that consists of over forty routes. Various objectives must be met to complete the game.[2]

Plot

Billy "Big Bang" Blitz is a sergeant in S.A.B.R.E. (Special Assault Brigade for Real Emergencies).[3] He is contacted during a vacation at the beach with his girlfriend Mary to save Professor Plum, creator of a Doomsday Bomb capable of destroying the world.[2] Bang soon encounters Tom Guycot, the mastermind behind the abduction, and he learns that the Doomsday Bomb is controlled by seven medallions which have been distributed among the governors of Demonhead.[4] While retrieving one of the medallions, he meets a captured hermit who teaches Bang various force powers. While searching for the rest of the medallions, Bang repeatedly experiences strange mental discomfort.

Bang later discovers that the discomfort is a failed attempt at mind control by a demon trapped beneath the mountain at Demonhead's north end. The demon later manages to control Michael, Bang's ally, and kill Tom Guycot and steals his medallion. Bang learns from the Hermit that the demon can only be destroyed with the Sword of Apollo.[5] Upon defeating the demon and recovering Guycot's medallion, Bang attempts to rescue Professor Plum, though the Doomsday Bomb is already complete. The bomb turns out to be set up by aliens, who created humanity 1,000 years ago, having grown disappointed with mankind's destructive tendencies. The attempt to use it to hasten the end of the world, but it is diffused by the medallions, where Bang uses guesswork to place each medallion in its proper place, and has a limited number of tries before the bomb will explode. If successful, the aliens will announced that they are annoyed by the failure of the bomb and that they will leave Earth never to return, to which Bang says that from now on humans will look after themselves. Bang goes home with the Hermit to reunite with Mary and receive congratulations from his commander.
