Night Slashes X is an amazing fan-made beat ‘em up game that was recreated from the Data East Corporation’s classic arcade game, Night Slashes. This widescreen game features three monster hunters along with Ash, who is the main character in The Evil Dead game. All the characters have to make their way through the game while fighting a band of undead monsters by kicking, punching, or shooting them.
This game was made in the OpenBOR engine and has similar gameplay to the original Night Slashes game which was made in 1993. The only difference is that it has widescreen, better visuals, and a lot more enemies to get rid of. You have the option to play any of the three original characters from Night Slashes game – Christopher Smith, Jake Hunter, and Zhao Hong Hua along with The Evil Dead’s Ash as well. Each character has its own set of special moves and although Ash cannot use weapons in this game, he has many other fighting capabilities that can be deadly for the monsters.
One of the best things about Night Slashes X is that you have only 2 continues for every play which makes this game tough but equally fun and exciting. Also, you can play with up to 4 players at a time so that is a great way to increase your odds of winning at this retro beat ‘em up game!
