Genre: Action

Based on the coolest animated TV show that never was, BATS stars Count Bloodvayne and the rest of Bloodsucker Anti-Terror Squad as they battle Scorpion Supreme and the ruthless terrorist organization, STING! (Syndicate for Terror and Illegal Non-Government, voted the world’s #1 terrorist organization.) Did you ever want GI Joe with vampires? Well now you can have it, buddy! BATS is a throwback to the action sidescrollers of the 16-bit era, with a modern twist. It’s a fast-paced, arcade brawler-shooter-slasher that rewards precision play and pixel-perfect timing. Play like a pro or take your time running around killing terrorists, slicing off heads and sucking up blood at your own pace. It’s up to you! Either way, you’re gonna have a bloody good time. GAMEPLAY There are five hand-crafted levels of STING’s fortress for the player to explore. Each level is filled with dangerous traps, deadly hazards, and an endless supply of Scorp soldiers to slice and dice into bloody bits. As players progress through the levels they will collect blood droplets, which can be used to activate super deadly vampire powers, making the wholesale slaughter of disposable soldiers a breeze! But watch out, there’s still plenty of swinging saw blades, terrorist zombies, and electrocution chambers to navigate. And don’t forget the STING sauna! CHARACTERS The Bloodsucker Anti-Terror Squad is a secret government organization that fights bite at a time! There are five playable characters in the game. Players start as BATS leader, Count Bloodvayne, and unlock the other members of the team as they complete each level. Count Bloodvayne This Victorian-era vampire was once a detective for Scotland Yard. While on the hunt for Jack the Ripper, he was bitten by a creature of the night and transformed into Count Bloodvayne, vampire of justice! Count Bloodvayne can transform into a wolf, killing enemies with ease. Sgt. Sabre Sabre’s mother was bitten by a vampire when he was in utero. Half human, half vampire, and all muscle, Sgt. Sabre swings his mighty blade to slice terrorists into little meat chunks. When he’s powered up, Sabre spins like a whirlwind to decimate his foes. Mitzie Once your average millennial suburban kid, Mitzie’s encounter with an organic, artisanal, hand-crafted protein shake from Bavaria transformed her into a winged bloodsucker of vengeance! Her flying abilities make her the most maneuverable of the team. Rick Ghastley Rick was a member of the 90s boy band sensation, Boyz Town. But a run-in with a sexy vampire groupie turned his thirst for love into a thirst for blood! Rick uses a deadly shotgun to blast the bad guys to bits. He’s also working on a comeback album. Nosferadude No one knows how old Nosferadude is, or where he comes from, or even if “he” is a he. But one thing is clear, Nosferadude is agile and a dangerous predator. He collects more blood than anyone else on the team, making his vampire rage even more deadly! Squirt Every team needs a mascot, and Squirt is the bat with the can-do attitude that makes the team go! Finding Squirt will protect any BATS member from one hit. Scorpion Supreme Scorpion Supreme is the ruthless leader of STING, voted the world’s #1 terrorist organization. With pincers for hands and a venomous tail, Scorpion Supreme is Count Bloodvayne’s greatest foe. He also has a terrible temper, always killing his trusted Scorp minions for screwing up. FEATURES Five levels to master Five characters to unlock Boss Rush mode - test your skillz! Speedrun mode - go for the record!

BATS is a basic 2D action game with some solid vampire puns. Not much to see here, but it's mostly alright.

BATS: Bloodsucker Anti-Terror Squad is fun. It has great humour, doesn't take itself too seriously, and has some great homages to several franchises all whilst cracking a joke or two at their expense. Its gameplay is fine, and I think with a little bit of TLC to tighten the controls and fixing of the blood drops, it would turn BATS from a good game to a great one.

B.A.T.S.: Bloodsucker Anti-Terror Squad is a fun game, but extremely limited. The joke behind the concept wears out very fast, but the gameplay sustains itself through its short duration, even if there's nothing else to do after finishing the campaign.

For fast-paced arcade-style 2D action, BATS: Bloodsucker Anti-Terror Squad offers a solid formula that provides a decent challenge.
