The year is 2062. Moribund Kadaver has assumed control of a cryogenics plant near Monstro City, which is not a good thing. Kadaver is a former mortician who has dabbled in cryogenics ever since he purchased Deadly Enforcement Aggressive Destruction Incorporated, DEAD Inc. for short. Now he has the power to unleash mutants called Psykogenix on the good people of Monstro City! Realizing the danger, the Military Ascertainment Department (MAD) has decided to call upon the world's most dangerous mercenaries with a special talent for destruction: the Skeleton Krew.
Skeleton Krew is an isometric shooter that has you choosing between three members of the deadly organization: Spine, who totes a Pulverax Plasma-beam weapon; Joint, a 500-pound bruiser who uses a Crash n' Burn Blaster; and Rib, a female operative who prefers a Tri-blast Trasher as her weapon of choice. The characters also carry a limited number of Big Bad Bombs to throw at anything too powerful to blast with their guns. The object of the game is to make it through four planets on your way to stop Kadaver's nefarious plans.
These areas include Earth (three sectors in Monstro City), Mars (at the Tritium Manufacturing Facility), Venus (Ammunition Dump) and finally the Psykogenesis Planet, where you will infiltrate DEAD HQ. Blast the mutant creations of Kadaver while avoiding the deadly defensive weapons guarding the various facilities. Pick up extra lives and cash (points) along the way to add to your three lives. A second player can join in the mayhem for simultaneous action, and you can continue your carnage via passwords. Skeleton Krew also features three difficulty levels, which dictate how hard the enemies are to bring down. ~ Scott Alan Marriott, All Game Guide
