Download Night Slashers Classic Game
Night Slashers is a 1994 beat’em up arcade game developed and published by Data East. Night Slashers is similar to Capcom’s Final Fight series, which is an archetypal side scrolling beat-em-up game. One or two player characters move from left to right through each level (most of which are split into 3 or more scenes), fighting with the enemy characters who appear, until they reach a confrontation with a stronger boss character at the end of the level.
Once that boss is beaten, the players automatically move on to the next stage. Enemies appear from both sides of the screen and from out of doorways or entrances set into the background, and the player(s) must defeat all of them to progress. If the players try to simply travel through the levels without fighting, the screen will stop scrolling until all current enemies have been defeated, before allowing the players to continue progress. Enemies may move outside the confines of the screen, but players may not. There is a time limit to each stage.
Unlike Final Fight, Night Slashers features three characters with larger move sets (including “smart bomb” or “screen zapper” type moves) and a horror theme. During the course of the game, players fight through hordes of attacking zombies and mutants, as well as other enemies such as werewolves and elementals. Bosses also include stereotypical monsters such as a mummy, a golem, and lookalikes of Count Dracula and Frankenstein’s monster.
The player(s) play the role of one of three heroes. The game also has three different endings, one for each character:
Jake – an American monster hunter and street brawler with cybernetic arms and mastery of the Lightning Element. His nickname is “The Psychic Cyborg”.
Christopher – a European vampire hunter and martial artist who has mastery over Water and Ice.
Hong Hua – an Asian female martial artist who is proficient with mystic arts and mastery of the Fire Element.
