The game takes place in a nightmarish version of Croft Manor. Lara begins in a randomly selected room. Lara must fight off zombies with limited supplies, as she tries to navigate her way through the house to destroy three skulls, which are also randomly placed. Once the three skulls are destroyed, Lara must return to the main hall and destroy the final skull, which is much bigger and can take more damage.
Lara starts the game with only a revolver and a knife, however she can find more weapons scattered around the house.
