Darkstalkers: The Night Warriors is a 2D one-on-one fighting game. Select one of the ten available fighters and two unlockable boss characters, each based on a classic monster (vampire, werewolf, golem, zombie, succubus, mummy, catwoman, oni, merman, sasquatch, robot, alien.) and fight it out in various horror-themed locations. Gameplay is mostly concentrated on special moves and combos.
