    Two players can work together to combat the creatures of the night, while playing on the same screen. As characters fight through the levels, they gain knowledge and skill, giving them heightened power. The player is constantly engaged—either by the more than 30 spells, the four bosses, or the nearly 40 enemies—and points are awarded for style as well as skill.

    Featuring multi-directional spell casting combined with intense melee combat, Nightcaster II offers an exhilarating and captivating game play experience.

    Features

  • The unique dual-analog control system allows players to simultaneously maneuver their characters in one direction, while accurately aiming spells in another.
