->''"The game looks pretty good. The rendered backgrounds are sharp and use light sourcing and shading.(...) Add in some dull music and long, boring combos, and it equals a competent but uninspired game."''

One of the many [[FightingGame fighting games]] [[FollowTheLeader that tried to copy]] MortalKombat. Although the influence of ''VideoGame/KillerInstinct'' is undeniable.

''Pray For Death'' is a DOS Game FightingGame which tried to imitate ''VideoGame/KillerInstinct'' but didn't achieve much. While the graphics were great (for it's time), the gameplay was uninspired, the sound horrible and the fatalities lame.

While it's not an important fact, it's worth mentioning this game include Cthulhu as a character.
!!This series has examples of:
* AIIsACrapshoot: Painbringer. A "malfunction" turned him from a military training automaton into a genocidal robot supremacist.
* AllMythsAreTrue: Odin is mentioned in Wolfrich's bio, Anubi has his cult, and Cthulhu is here as well.
* AnimatedArmor: Sir Maelstrom.
* AxeCrazy: Pantera and Maelstrom. The later once slaughtered ''his entire own army'', thinking he would [[YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness no longer need them]].
* BladeBelowTheShoulder: Sir Maelstrom has two blades on each of his gauntlets.
* BruceLeeClone: Perhaps the most uninspired one yet: Jan Fun. The only difference to [[Creator/BruceLee the original]] in his backstory is that Jan Fun opened a dojo instead of becoming an actor.
* {{Combos}}
* ComboBreaker
* DanceBattler: Pantera, who kills dancing to the sound of techno.
* DidYouJustPunchOutCthulhu: Well, considering the man himself is fighter...
* FallenAngel: Uriel didn't want to help build Hell. Therefore, she was sentenced out of Heaven.
* FinishingMove: They exist, but they are laughable. Nobody really dies, and some of them make no sense whatsoever.
* HighPressureBlood: All characters bleed a lot during the finishing moves - even when they are barely hit or not hit at all. Even Death himself bleeds!
** AlienBlood: Cthulhu's is green, Anubi's purple.
** Averted only for Maelstrom and Painbringer, as their metal bodies give of [[SwordSparks sparks]] when hit. Pantera acctually comments on this before battle.
* ManVersusMachine: Painbringer's main goal is to kill Jan Fun and prove the superiority of machines over men.
* {{Succubus}}: Murgan's backstory calls him that, but it's clearly a case of the author failing mythology.
* TomeOfEldritchLore: Malestrom's main goal is to find the Necronomicon.
