Description from the packaging.

It's midnight at Maxwell Manor...
There are bugs in the garden, blood spots in the front hall, and spiders downstairs... not your ordinary house! The bugs are glurks and wigglers, and they'll eat anything in their path (including you). The blood spots are poisonous. And the spiders are huge, and will go through walls just to meet you. And we haven't begun to tell you what the house can do.

Meet Professor Arabesque...
He's you. That is, you control him; and on behalf of the Psychical Society, your mission is simple: find the Skull of Doom that controls Maxwell Manor, and learn how to destroy it. The answers are somewhere in the house, and it'll take a fast man with a fast gun to find the answers. Of course, you and the professor will have some help. There are treasures to find, vases to give you bullets and lives, and some special objects like gold coins and crosses to pull you out of danger or send away the naties. Of course, you have to find them first before the nasties find you, but isn't that what life is all about?
