* CainAndAbel: Your family was cursed so that one of every set of twins becomes evil, and you have to go back in time using the titular waxworks building to kill the worst of them and break the curse. Your own brother is incapacitated before and throughout the game, and part of your goal is to save him, but other than this, the "evil twin" aspect isn't played up much: the evil brothers of the past include Jack the Ripper, a necromancer who looks far older than his good twin, and a human/fungus mutant who doesn't even resemble a human anymore.

The storyline was fairly simple: After the death of your uncle, he leaves you his wax works, a crystal ball, and a letter telling you that you must rid the family of a curse put upon you by an evil witch, which has affected the family whenever twins were born. One twin turns out good, and the other evil. To defeat each evil twin, you must use your uncle's wax works to go back in time to five periods and locations: An Ancient-Egyptian pyramid, Victorian London (in which the evil twin is none other than UsefulNotes/JackTheRipper), a cemetery teeming with zombies, and a vast mine shaft filled with plant mutants. If you survive each stage, you will be able to enter the final wax work, the Witch's lair, and rid the family of its curse for good. If you need assistance, you can speak to your uncle through the crystal ball for clues and tips.

* DeathByIrony: UpToEleven according to the prologue. After the witch places the curse, she is later killed by the first evil twin for refusing to lift the curse. [[spoiler: [[ReadingsAreOffTheScale The irony then goes up to infinity and beyond]] in the ending after it is revealed ''you've been playing as the evil twin all along and Alex is actually the good twin''. That means ''the last twin got to her before she was able to cast her curse AND the first twins were even born''.]]
