Week of Rage: OpenBoR Showcase – Vampire Hunters

Following on from Wednesday’s OpenBoR showcase title Nightslashers X, here’s another Castlevania-inspired homebrew project by Bonus JZ entitled Vampire Hunters.

I’m sort of cheating here a bit as the game plays more like a 2D platformer rather than a full scrolling beat em up. However, although the game is only at demo stage it’s already shaping up to be a worthy homage to the Castelvania series.

Based around the Richter/Alucard point of the Castlevania timeline, one or two players can get to grips with either charatcer and journey to Dracula’s castle to put him back to sleep afterhis 100-year slumber is once again broken.

The screen looks a bit hectic with enemies so the balancing may not yet be complete, but at any rate, I’m very keen to see how this project progresses.
