In this game you assume the role of an aged kung-fu master who channels his years of ancient wisdom so that he can kick vampires in the nads. Lucky thing that, because over the course of his travels he’ll encounter no shortage of netherparts in sore need of a good booting. Seems that a socially maladjusted witch has conjured up an insatiable horde of the dead to rise from their graves – not to rescue her daughter, but to mindlessly stalk the land in pursuit of delicious human flesh.
This is set in historical China after all, a country where anything even remotely bad that might befall it is inevitably attributed to those wily females. It’s safe to say that this would indeed fall under the category of “bad;” with the local villages up to their tasty eyeballs in cannibalistic specters and spooks, and with the Emperor powerless to stop them (no doubt preoccupied with one of his concubines), who ya gonna call?

Sho enjoys classic video games, black comedy, and poking people until they explode -- figuratively or otherwise. He also writes a bit.
