Fast paced, action packed beat 'em up with RPG elements. Use multiple upgradeable weapons, items and magic to defeat vampires, werewolves and legions of the undead!

Arrow keys - Move
ESC - Pause
A - Block
S - Jump/No/Cancel
D - Attack/Yes/Activate/Use magic
F - Charge magic
E - Select item
R - Use selected item
Space - Swap weapons


* The key to defeating some enemies is using combinations of the 3 primary weapons (swap between these with SPACE). Vampires, for example, must be attacked first with the bat or katana until they are weakened, then finished with the stake.
* Hold F to charge magic, wait until you hear a blip and see yellow particles appear. To use level 1 magic, wait until you see the first yellow particles, then press D. For level 2 magic, wait until you see the second yellow particles, etc.
* If you get cornered by an enemy, you can dash while blocking by holding A and double tapping a direction key. This is a good way to get behind an attacking enemy or get out of the way of a group of attacking enemies.
* If you jump and attack in mid-air, you'll do more damage if you hit the enemy.


would rate higher

but once i reached sebastian the boss nothing i did done any damage and use cross bow, all attacks.. great potential but sort out bugs.

Good game but...

There were some glitches one that i found most annoying was when my game would not let me continue after i cleared all the zombies at vinyl fantasy, so i didnt get to see much of the game.


I loved the game it was fun, but on the last boss guy if you happen to die in the screen where it makes it all turn based, when you get revived by the magic man the screen keeps flashing over and over.

Tried over and over again

But couldn't get past the first section were you face the first zombies as screen would move to the right

I couldnt even play.

nice concept, but i couldnt even play it. too glitchy.
