What is a man? Well, if the man is Anselm, then he is an apprentice Demon Hunter, sent by the Divine Order to cleanse the city of Salem. The prophecies have foretold of terrible calamity that will condemn mankind, if not for the intervention of a good man; a man of faith; a man with an infernally snarky sidekick and a bad-ass crossbow. Good thing that's you Anselm, because you're all we have left. Salem is a horror platform adventure by Mar-Ble Team, where light and darkness clash, and it's nothing less than Armageddon.
Move Anselm with [WASD], and aim and fire your demon-slaying crossbow with the mouse. Demons are wily creatures, though, so to get a proper bead on them, you'll have to use your stun lantern. Hold the [spacebar], and all demons near your aim-cursor will be marked. This will stun most types, though different demons react in different ways. Be sure to keep track of the lantern energy you use. It can be recharged by slaying demons, or standing within a light source, but you really don't want to be caught in a dark place without it. There are creatures far worse than grues in this town... With Castlevania-styled gothic atmosphere, creative creature designs, and just the right touch of humorous dialogue with unintentionally hilarious voice-acting, Salem is an early-Halloween treat. Though the "holding down a key and move the mouse" mechanics are a little unintuitive (and not very trackpad friendly at the least), Salem's brisk pace and twisty plot make it a demon-hunt everyone should join in on.
