Having missed its April 3rd release date
, a new demo has arrived for Monster Madness: Battle for Suburbia
. The game is a top down hack n' slash in the style of Gauntlet
and Raven's recent Marvel
games. Players take control of one of four different stereotypical horror movie characters (our favorite is Jennifer, the requisite hottie) and proceed to wreak havoc on hordes of monsters. The enemies, like the playable characters, are pulled from the horror movie lexicon as well. Expect vampires, mummies, and werewolves for example. The game also utilizes a parts system that allows different weapons to be created. Finally up to 16 players will be able to play online in co-op and competitive modes.
So, get to downloading already. We'll post our impressions of the demo later today.
