Wicked Jester, a band of four, are headed for a Friday night gig at The Coventry, a rundown dive outside of town. They arrive only to find the parking lot deserted, the club seemingly dead. The band's members: Pablo Ramirez, Andy Chang, Gabriel Gordo and Patrick Scott, stepping from their van, are startled by a voice from the shadows. She offers them four tickets to a circus -- tonight's the grand finale! Having nothing better to do, the four accept and the nightmare begins.
Based on characters from comic book author Todd McFarlane, KISS Psycho Circus: The Nightmare Child
brings the horror and carnage of the Psycho Circus to the PC in a shooter format. There are two-dozen creatures to battle with and three classes of weapons to use, each with four specific types: melee (beast claws, thornblade, twister and punisher), common (zero cannon, magma cannon, windblade and scourge) and ultimate (stargaze, galaxion, spirit lance and draco). In addition to the weaponry, temporary power-ups and instant items such as health, attack and defense powers are available.

The Press Says
There are currently no topics for this game.
This game was released (in the U.S. at least) in five different boxes.
There was one box each with a drawing of each particular band member on the cover and then a Collector's Edition' which had all four members on the cover.
The Collector's Edition also came with a mini poster and little plastic 'back stage pass'. (Don't try and use it at a KISS concert though!)
I don't know that there's any difference in the game itself between the regular or collector's edition, but I did notice when I grabbed the patch that there were two seperate patches, one for the collector's one not.
