Week of Rage: OpenBoR Showcase – Nightslashers X

Being a big Castlevania fan, I thought I’d showcase this next OpenBoR title Nightslashers X. It’s another Streets of Rage-style beat-em-up, with mountains of gore and blood thrown in for good measure.

When the world becomes overrun by zombies, mutants and monsters, three heroes step up to liberate the world of the living. Players can choose from vampire hunter Christopher, half cyborg monster hunter Jake and martial arts expert Jasmin.

I have to say, the graphics and animation present in Nightslashers X is incredible. There doesn’t seem to be much in the way of sprite rips at all and every inch of screen is full of goregous detail.

OK so this is a gross example, but I like the way the enemies guts spill out after they die. It’s impressive because their bodies stay on screen indefinitely, unlike most side-scrollers where defeated enemies fade out of view. It’s a small feature, but it looks great.

I highly recommend you check this game out if you are a fan of the genre., it has three endings, eight stages and a slew of combos and magic-based attacks.

What are you waiting for, download the game from Lavalit and try it for yourself.
