* SchmuckBait: Near the end of the game, there's a rather tempting phone, that seems like a chance for more plot or calling for help... too bad that if you go for it, the killer gets you, saying "Hang up... forever!".

The game plays like a PointAndClick AdventureGame, you have to use the directional pad to move the pointer, pick a direction (left, up or right) and see as [=FMVs=] happen. Sometimes it's necessary to click something in time, for example to stop the car or defend yourself from the eponymous killer. There are similarities to ''VideoGame/TheTownWithNoName'', likely since both of these games were made by the same people.

''Psycho Killer'' is a video game on the Commodore Amiga CDTV and MS DOS, released in 1992, developed by Delta 4 Interactive and published by On-Line Entertaiment.

The game's plot is simple. A woman goes into a car and drives, but suddenly runs into the titular killer. The protagonist also goes driving, but her car blocks the road and he has to stop. After that, we see the woman being kidnapped by the psycho, and our hero goes into the woods to save her.

A sequel was planned, and apparently it would be "all in your mind", but it was never released.
