FACE THE UNKNOWN AND SAVE THE WORLD!
In claustrophobic, puzzle-riddled, dangerous mazes, surrounded by countless enemies, you hunt the Evil Masters down with the purpose of eliminating them and the pain they brought. Determination, concentration, and quick reflexes will be your only allies in your desperate quest...
WHAT IS THIS?
BOH is a dungeon crawler where you need to solve puzzles, collect items, open passages, avoid traps, kill the Evil Mastersand the creatures they generate endlessly, and ultimately come out of the mazes in one piece. Keep cool, avoid the enemies as much as possible, focus on the labyrinths, and eventually you'll make it to the end.
BOH, thanks to its unique aspect and gameplay, is an immersive experience that makes you feel as if you were actually lost in those treacherous dungeons.
You can play any (unlocked) mission any time, and you can also decide how they look and sound by choosing freely one of the several themes available...
... not to mention that, if you're the creative type, you can even create your own missions and themes (!) thanks to the developer's manual, which provides all the information needed.

BOH is part of a saga that, as of writing, includes five totally different games.
BOH opens the story, with the Evil Masters bringing chaos to Earth. In Huenison, the fight continued against just the eponymous character. Eventually they were all repelled from Earth, but, as seen in QUOD INIT EXIT IIm, during their retreat, Huenison and his companions happened to pass by planet Suinio and decided to cause trouble there as well. MAH shows that, even years later, the memory of the Evil Masters still lives on in the aspect of the virtual guards that a group of fanatics created to protect the Apocalypser, a device capable of destroying the whole planet. Finally, KOG assigns the hero who saved the Earth in MAH a new mission: when back to his space colony, he learned that peace was at risk and was asked to develop a sofware application for defense training.
