In this game, you must help that ingenious time traveller, Doctor Who , avoid ever-growing swarms of your arch-enemies, the Daleks . You are armed only with your trusty Sonic Screwdriver, an ability to teleport to random destinations, and your unrivaled intellect.
Luckily, what the Daleks have in numbers, they lack in intelligence. In their
reckless pursuit, they can crash into one another, leaving piles of rubble .
Any Daleks trying to move through rubble will also be destroyed.
The game is entirely keyboard controlled. All available commands are listed
As you progress to higher levels, the Daleks destroyed are worth increasing numbers of points. No score is given for Daleks destroyed with the sonic screwdriver.
The scoring rules have changed from previous versions, so that heavy use of the sonic screwdriver could result in lower scores, even at higher levels. Fewer points are awarded for each Dalek destroyed.
As you start reaching higher levels, you may notice some unexpected changes (even stranger if you have never seen the TV show). Do not be alarmed. This is not a bug - it's a feature..
The game design is heavily indebted to the author(s) of the Macintosh shareware game written about 10 years ago. I still find myself playing it during lulls on the Internet.
If you liked this version of Daleks, send me e-mail. I am very open to making enhancements. In fact, I have a few in mind myself (Cybermen?)
Back to the Game!
