Protect your world from demons as one of legendary Crypt Stalkers.

Crypt Stalker is an 8-bit retro-styled arcade game. Take on the role of Gladys, one of the descendants of the world's defenders, and stop the demons before they unleash hell on the planet. Explore and defend diverse locations such as pyramids, a lake of fire, or overgrown ruins from unearthly creatures.

As a highly trained Stalker, your task is to search and overcome every danger standing in your way. Watch out for your surroundings - unstable stones, and moving platforms are just a few dangers awaiting you during exploration.

Fight your way through enemies with a cyber whip or your reliable laser gun. At the end of each crypt, you will have to confront the powerful boss. Remember to replenish your gun ammunition or restore some health by destroying blocks, before going to battle.
