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.
And once you're done dispatching the baddies, you can also see how you fare against the other players in the world by submitting your records to the online standings!
SEE IT IN ACTION
The best way to really appreciate BOH is to play all the missions included in the demo. But if you want to get quickly an initial idea, enjoy till the very end this video, which shows six of the easiest missions played from start to finish, using all the available themes.
Besides the game itself, you also get all the music tracks in CD quality and the artwork to produce a professional-looking audio CD with jewel case booklet and inlay.
Listen to the menu tracks of all the themes now!

BOH is part of a little saga that includes four totally different games.
The Evil Masters started bringing chaos to Earth in BOH.
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, their memory still lives on in the aspect of the virtual guards.
After more than two months of hard work, BOH gets yet another free update!
More specifically, this update:
* adds 17 new missions (5 very easy, 8 easy, 4 average);
* improves 43 missions by means of new/revised hints, little changes to the layouts, and other changes;
* marks training missions with a dedicated icon;
* adds the remote control icon to the HUD;
* adds graphics interpolation to enemy sprites;
* improves some graphics and shooting sound effects;
* adds specific sound effects to the theme "C64";
* renames some missions and most themes;
* reworks the manuals entirely;
* reworks the soundtrack artwork entirely;
* allows to run the game on Windows 10 as a normal user (due to changes in the Windows files handling policy, it had become necessary to run the game as administrator);
