A Nightmare Creatures Site Kalisto's hybrid action adventure masterpiece combines the interface and adventure of Tomb Raider with the controls and combat system of Virtua Fighter. Although there are compromises on both fronts, Nightmare Creatures is definitely one hell of a game. That it has native PowerVR support (this is something Kalisto is very reliable about) for my Matrox M3D accelerator doesn't hurt also. I can run this puppy at 1024x768 16bit color smooth as a baby's butt on my AMD K6/166, except when a LOT is going on (like when the six-headed snake monster is shooting flames out of all six heads).

Well, I'm not much for updates or anything, so instead here is a bunch of resource links, as well as some content I've composed myself.

  • Reviews - Debating whether or not to buy the game? If you have a 3D acclerator, I vote a strong yes, but you might want to look through these as well.
