DEcapAttack Description

Decap Attack is a video game for the Sega Mega Drive (Genesis) console. It is almost identical in terms of gameplay to the Japanese title Magical Hat Flying Turbo Adventure. Both are updates of the Master System game Psycho Fox and the NES game Kid Kool.

The player controls a zombified mummy, named Chuck D. Head, through various side-scrolling levels in an effort to battle an underworld army led by Max D. Cap. The fictional island the game takes place on, shaped like a skeleton, is split apart into many pieces. Individual levels are named after parts of the skeleton, such as Abdomainland or Armington. Some levels require the player to collect a certain item for Dr. Frank N. Stein, the mad scientist who created Chuck.

Chuck resembles an ordinary mummy, except for the fact that he has no head and he has a face implanted in his torso. During the game, Chuck attacks by extending his face out, and may collect a skull, which can be thrown at enemies. During the game Chuck may also collect a variety of potions, which can be collected and used at the player's leisure. The potions consist of powerups typical for the genre, such as invincibility and eliminating all enemies on screen.

For many years, a comic strip loosely based upon Decap Attack appeared in the UK's Sonic the Comic.
