The Rocky Horror Show is an action adventure game based on the movie The Rocky Horror Picture Show rather than the stage production for which it's named after. You play as either Brad or Janet, in an attempt to find all of the pieces of the De-Medusa machine so that you can save your sweetheart and escape from the castle before it blasts off to the planet Transsexual in the galaxy of Transylvania.

You move around the side-view rooms of the castle while characters like Riff-Raff, Magenta, Columbia, Eddie, and Dr. Frankenfurter make things very difficult for you by stealing your clothes, shooting you with lasers, and running you over with motorcycles. Like the musical, the game is very unusual, to say the least.

The Amstrad CPC version was ported from the ZX Spectrum.

I'm on the ladder. The man on the left is probably Rocky Horror.

Don't touch a force field!


The game contain two variants of Time Warp. The first is heard from the menu, while showing the Time Warp dance. It's short and doesn't loop. The second is the full version which does loop. But both are poorly arranged.

The music was probably arranged by Jay Derrett, who arranged the music for the ZX Spectrum and Commodore 64 ports developed by the same company.

Game Rip








The music has been logged into YM format with WinAPE while playing the game, however a proper AY rip should be made.

Ripping AY music is very arduous process so it's beyond the scope of this site.
