DOS games do not work on Windows XP, Vista, or Windows 7, 8, or 10 and we do not offer technical support for DOS games running on such systems. However, if you really want to run games like this on your fast new computer you should try using DOSBox. The DOSBox OpenSource DOS emulator is an excellent piece of work which we can highly recommend. It isn't possible for us to guarantee that it will work well for you, however, especially on other graphic-intensive DOS games. For older DOS games it should work fairly well with any machine capable of running the newer operating systems.

To start with, you will need to download the Win32 Installer using this link:

The README file included with DOSBox will tell you what you need to know. If you find it a bit too technical, just click on The Newbie's Pictoral Guide to DOSBox on the following page:

We find that it is best to create a separate shortcut for each DOSBox game. That makes starting the game easier and also makes full screen mode easier to deal with.


PC Entertainment, March 1996

"What do you get when you mix two parts Scooby Doo with one part Heavy Metal and toss it in a Dragon's Lair crust? Why, BrainDead 13, of course.

"The latest in ReadySoft's cartoon-cum-computer game line (e.g., Space Ace), BrainDead 13 casts you as Lance, "the world's hippest computer repair guru," pitted against the diabolical Dr. Neuro Neurosis, a disembodied brain bent on world domination."

"The terrific animation, soundtrack, and sound effects will bring back fond memories of Scooby and Shaggy fleeing madly through the corridors of some spooky mansion. BrainDead 13 turns up the gore factor a bit, though: While the Scoob never got anything worse than a good scare, Lance is likely to be decapitated, crushed, or burned to a crisp. Fortunately, he just keeps coming back for more - right at the spot of your last mistake."

Multimedia Merchandising, May 1995

"Lance, the world's hippest computer repair guru, gets a late-night 'fix-it' call to the castle of Dr. Nero Neurosis, who is plotting world domination. Lance must battle Neurosis' pet Fritz as well as 'mishaps of science' FrankenJock and Draculette to reach the Chamber of the Brain. Game, schmame: The animation alone renders this title worthy of shelf space. The fully orchestrated digital sound is another plus."
