    Nightmare in the Dark SP?

    Hey ya'll

    Doing some Halloween gaming on my MVS, and noticed on my 161-1 banana cart there is a "Nightmare in the Dark SP" version of the game.

    Anyone know what this adds to the game?

    Thanks!

    Also playing Magician Lord and Ghost Pilots, anything else you guys can think of that would qualify as "Halloween" for MVS/AES? Thanks!

    Or even a Halloween themes level/track in a game?

    You can nix Ghost Pilots from that list. There's nothing Halloween about that.

    How about...
    Ghostlop
    Metal Slug 3 (3rd stage zombie level)
    Art of Fighting 2 (King's stage)
    Baseball Stars has the Ghastly Monsters team

    If you are going by select stages and not games as a whole... Zupapa! Has a very Halloween-y stage.

    Metal Slug 4 four has the zombie house and giant Frankenstein monster.

    Metal Slug 5 final boss is a giant Lovecraftian daemon.

    Also Magician Lord has demons,warlocks and monsters ... even Satanic looking symbols. I would call it dark fantasy.

    Crossed swords can also qualify with all the skeletons, winged demon-knights, juggalo-warlock and Satan Goats.

    Metal Slug 3 is a great choice. Island of Doctor Moreau, Zombie outbreak, ancient gods, mummies, alien mothership. It totally counts as a Halloween type game.

    Magician Lord and maybe... Prehistoric Isle 2? Like 2d Master said above, Magician Lord is fantasy and Prehistoric isle is sci-fi.

    PI2 final boss does remind me of Cthulhu...

    For Japanese culture horror games... Sengoku, Sengoku 2 and Ganryu have some folk monsters, demons, necromancy, skeletons, zombies and spirits.

    Not Neo Geo, but the Mexico stage in KOF XIV has a Day of the Dead theme.

    Mutation Nation and King of Monsters also fit in this mold.

    Second level in Metal Slug 2/X - Egypt with Mummies and Mummy dogs. The Sengoku games - you're basically killing undead stuff the whole way through and there are lots of skulls. Is that the mid boss in Sengoku 2 stage 2 or 3 where it's the huge skeleton on the side of the ship? Spooky times...

    Great tips all around guys; thanks!

    No info on the SP version of that game? Guess I'll just have to play it and find out.

    SamSho V has that big monster thing—Kusaregedo—with the pile of bodies on his stage. Always thought that was a bit spooky.

    Darkstalkers if we want to branch outside Neo Geo

    Mutation Nation is the 2nd best Neo Halloween game. I would've been looking for a cart if I could've done a Halloween party this year....

    Not sure what the deal is with NitD SP - probably some lame hack-y stuff. The original NitD is perfect, honestly my favorite Bubble Bobble type game. Soundtrack is BANGIN

    You forgot the homing missiles in Ghost Pilots. They scare me to this day. So it qualifies for Halloween, for me;-) And you are a Ghost Pilot.

    Nothing on the Neo is more horrific than Gururin. Crouching naked men painfully morphing into big humanoid cats, lips fusing together, a beautiful naked woman turning into a monstrous old man's face... David Cronenberg would be proud. And that childish, disturbing laugh, my God! The only Neo game that really scares me.

    I quit Gururin after a minute because I didnít understand it and thought it was bad.

    I had high hopes for Gururin because of the other Face entries on the Neo, (Money Idol, Zupapa) but man, Gururin is a stinker.
