Video Game: Friday the 13th: The Computer Game
A 1985 computer game by Domark, based on the Friday the 13th film series.

Your job is to save your friends fom the ever-so-undying Jason Voorhees, who has taken their appearance to raise no suspicion while killing everyone.

Has the examples of:

  • Glamour Failure: If you attack another camper and it's really Jason in disguise, his cover will be blown.
  • Jump Scare: When entering a screen with a dead character, you are greeted with a picture of their gory demise and a scream.
  • Public Domain Soundtrack: The soundtrack features Bach and the Wedding March, among other things.
  • Sanity Meter: The game has a sanity/fear meter that raises as the game goes on. It's represented as a kid's head, with the hair starting to stand on end as you get more frightened. If the meter maxes out, you die of fright... this almost never happens in-game, but it does increase the chances of seeing hallucinations (a pile of skulls covered in blood, someone with a machete through their head, etc) accompanied by a blood-curdling scream.
  • Title: The Adaptation
