Game Review

Nightbreed: The Action Game is a progressive beat-em-up based on Clive Barker's movie Nightbreed. The game was developed by Impact for Ocean and published in 1990 for Amiga, Amstrad CPC, Atari ST, Commodore 64, DOS, e ZX Spectrum.

There was a plan for 3 games based on the movie, the second one is Nightbreed: The Interactive Movie, but the third one has never been completed. Apparently, some of the third game assets have been used for another game, called Daemonsgate.

This action game made good use of digitized images taken from the film but failed to bring the movie atmosphere to the game. Mostly because the gameplay is really standard, with a run, jump, and fight in a hostile fantasy environment, but no much more than this. Controls are not very responsive, which makes things worse.

However, if you are a fan of this cult horror movie, or the Clive Barker's work, just don't miss it.
