The Rocky Horror Show is an action adventure game based on the movie The Rocky Horror Picture Show more than the stage production for which it's named after. You play as either Brad or Janet, in an attempt to find all of the pieces of the De-Medusa machine so that you can save your sweetheart and escape from the castle before it blasts off to the planet Transsexual in the galaxy of Transylvania.

You move around the side-view rooms of the castle while characters like Riff-Raff, Magenta, Columbia, Eddie, and Dr. Frankenfurter make things very difficult for you by stealing your clothes, shooting you with lasers, and running you over with motorcycles. Like the musical, the game is very unusual, to say the least.

The ZX Spectrum version appears to be the original since the Commodore 64 port doesn't take advantage of the C64's stronger hardware.

Asshole or slut?

It's probably some sort of hunting lodge for rich weirdos.


Only one of the musical's repertoire is used in the game, and that's a rather awful rendition of Time Warp.

Ripping Spectrum music is a very arduous process that is beyond the scope of this site.
