This offbeat platformer doesn't make a whole lot of sense. Decap Attack stars a headless mummy who „punches“ foes with a head that bursts from his chest. Sometimes there's a skull on his shoulders he can throw to knock out several enemies at once. This is not your every day, garden-variety mummy. The action is pretty standard as you hop between platforms, collect potions, and pounce on cartoonish monsters. The object is to reach the end of each stage, although it's not always obvious which direction that lies. Potions you collect become available for use in a separate item screen, accessible by pressing A. You can use this screen to read a description of each item, but the user interface is terrible! The idea of selecting your power-up is unique, but most only last for a few seconds. Worse yet, when you try to use them against a boss, the game says „you can't use that here“. Decap Attack's graphics won't win any awards. The background scenery lacks a sense of depth, and looks like a bland patchwork of tiled images. I really don't like games where you can jump on clouds. It's just not very realistic. Some levels won't allow you to exit unless you go back and collect a specific item, which strikes me as bad design. The most appealing thing about Decap Attack is its Halloween theme. Okay, it's not overtly Halloween, but it does have skulls, ghosts, and werewolves. Your character throws his head for Pete's sake! I like Decap Attack's weird, jaunty theme song, as well as the creepy organ music that kicks in when you die. The game doesn't provide any score or password, and that severely hampers its replay value. On the whole, Decap Attack feels like a mishmash of tired platform elements, but it's still fun if you're in the mood for a mindless romp. -

In this game you play as Chuck D. Head, the product of a mad, but benevolent, scientist. Chuck looks a lot like a mummy, except he is missing an important part: a head. Fortunately, he is equipped with a set of eyes and a weird punching appendage in the middle of his chest. Chuck's weird features come in handy when, one day, this evil guy named Max D. Cap emerges from the underworld. Max quickly takes over our world, and only Chuck can stop him. The gameplay in Decapattack is of the side-scrolling platformer variety. You play through several colorful worlds, collect useful power up potions, and deliver a beat down to the ugly bosses. -
