Clearly inspired and modeled after the Prince of Persia series of games, Death by Dark Shadows is a competent entry into the genre. It includes a macabre backstory of voodoo and death in the bayou so it's not really suitable for children. The game has you playing as a sort of panther-like creature, although you instantly transform back into a human for certain actions, like picking up items. The graphics are dark and suited to the game, and the background music sounds quite professional as though it's from a commercial release. However DOSBox seems to lock up sometimes when the SoundBlaster sounds are enabled, so you should probably choose option 'B' when running the game to play without sound or else the game will lock up on you.
DEATH BY DARK SHADOWS V1.5 Enter a world of
voodoo, black magic and the unknown in this
strange story of Dr. Jones and his daughter.
With your soul transformed into that of a
black panther, your journey takes you into
depths of darkness, as you leap over the
perils of death in an attempt to rescue your
brainwashed daughter.
