TrickyDark SoulYou've had this dream before. The endless hallways. The zombies, demons, and who knows what else. But tonight is different. Tonight you aren't going to wake up... unless you can make it to the red door. Dark Soul is a first-person horror rail-shooter by Vempire Tales, where the path to freedom is literally a journey through hell.

As a rail-shooter, you will move automatically through the world of Dark Soul, pointing and clicking with the mouse to fire at attacking enemies. Shoot enough enemies in a row, and Beast Mode is activated, letting you invincibly tear through enemies until the meter runs out. Shooting boxes and other obstacles will grant extra health, as well as cash that can be used to purchase new weapons and upgrades between levels. Dark Soul's gameplay relies on the solid premise that firing wildly at something with claws and jaws leaping towards you out of the darkness, is something that will never fail to get the ol' adrenaline running. True, the repetitive backgrounds and palette-swapped enemies mean that the levels start to run together by the end, but Dark Soul puts all its elements to good use. It's interesting how, with just a few changes of color and character design, a game can shift from a sense of pulsing biological horror, to sickening chemical horror, to razor-sharp technological horror, and so on. All in all, it's an intense and fun experience, and anyone looking for a bit of gory demon hunting this Halloween should be well-satisfied.

I don't usually play rail shooters, but this looked interesting enough to give it a shot. The only negative that I could see (though it's a big one) would be the ease with which you could navigate away from the page due to the "secret walkthrough" button being in the same area as some of the monsters. Or maybe it's my cruddy aim. Someone, let me know.

Ridwana, I had the exact same problem.

Of course, that could mean I also have cruddy aim!

Not really for me on the walkthrough button. Once you realize that you hold down the mouse button and auto fire it gets easier. My aim was off it the start, but using a track pad it seemed like it was just me.

I don't see what the glyphs?, sigials? that you can get each level are for. I got 3/3 each time nothing happened...

Also once you beat the game you can't play again..... only the last level if you refresh the game. You can't even manually restart the game in game.
