Top-down twin stick macabre shooter
While this game is about 7 years old (released in 2009) and hasn't aged terribly well, it does what it sets out to do fairly well. If this website used a 10 point system it'd probably get a 7 instead of 3 stars.
The game is easy to get into, you have a good range of weapons at your disposal ranging from swords to twin pistols to dynamite to clear out small rooms filled with enemies. Enemy variety is a bit light, so expect to fight many bats and zombies. As you kill stuff you level up, so there's a bit of character customization in distributing skill points. There's little exploration as you traverse a grid of rooms to collect all lost souls before exiting the level.
Visually, the game is well-themed but not too impressive. Animation is a bit stilted, sound effects are stock, music is bland but fitting, but it works. Certain weapons, such as the sword, lack proper visual feedback when hitting enemies, when combined with shoddy hit detection it can be a little frustrating.
Overall, it's a competent game, if a bit repetitive. Oh, and there are spoopy elements. Occasionally images will flash on screen or whispered voices. This seems to occur after clearing out rooms, so it doesn't get in the way of gameplay.
