At the end of each phase you will find an extra level in which you have a maximum of 30 seconds and a single attempt to collect an extra life that will help you complete the following phases.


Phase 1 - Bullring:
The adventure begins in the arena of Las Ventas bullring, after enjoying a incredible AC-DC concert. Go inside the square until you reach the main exit door. Of course, you will not leave the bullring till you pick up every spike that Angus has thrown during the concert.

Phase 2 - City:
Once outside, you must reach the nearest subway station that will bring you closer to your neighborhood. Be careful, the city at night can be a very dangerous place. You spent your money on beers, so pick up some tickets you find along the way to pay the entrance.

Phase 3 - Subway:
This line leads to your neighborhood. Walk the corridors of the station and its hidden rooms to reach the platform and take the subway. At this time the trains no longer carries passengers, so look for some tool on the way that will allow you to open the wagon doors.

Phase 4 - Cementery:
The subway has brought you closer to your neighborhood, but to shorten the way to your house you decide to go through the shortcut of the old abandoned cemetery. Go through graves and ghosts on your way until you reach the place where you can jump the wall. But before find and collect the pieces of an amulet that will allow you to get out alive.

Phase 5 - Home sweet home:
You have finally arrived to your house. In a neighborhood like this, halls are not a highly recommended place. Enter and reach your floor avoiding problems with the dangerous people you will find. And before entering, collect the keys you have lost.
