Released in 1996 for the DOS, ''Timeslaughter'' is a fighting game made by the largely comedic Creator/BloodlustSoftware, made partly to make fun of the surge of violent fighting games that followed ''MortalKombat''.

Under the frankly ugly graphics, the core of ''Timeslaughter'' is surprisingly good if you consider it was made by just two people. A shareware FightingGame offering multiparallax backgrounds, 3D floors, a ton of digitized speech, blood that stayed on the ground, visible damage on the fighters, several levels of difficulty and speed... and was also quite smooth to play, wasn't really something you saw all days on DOS in the mid 1990s, unless you were dealing with the official conversions of ''Super VideoGame/StreetFighterII Turbo'' and the earlier episodes of ''MortalKombat''.

** The characters are parodies of fighting game stereotypes and cliches. Aside from the Ug example below, Spice makes fun of [[MsFanservice women wearing little amounts of clothing]], and Savage is a meaner version of BoisterousBruiser characters like Zangief.

Although it was originally sold, the game and a "director's cut" version (really just a functioning beta with some different art assets) [[http://bloodlustsoftware.com/timeslaughter.html is now freeware.]]
