''The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing'' is an indie HackAndSlash RPG by Neocore Games.

You play as the world famous monster hunter Van Helsing...'s son. Ever since your father retired from adventuring, you have taken up the family wide-brimmed hat and cloak and have become a famous monster hunter in your own right, accompanied by your loyal, but [[DeadpanSnarker snarky]] companion, Lady Katarina (Who is also a ghost).

One day, you receive an alarming mission. The country of Borgova, which your father brought peace to by forming a peace treaty between the country's humans and monsters, has suddenly fallen into chaos. Taking up your trusty swords and pistols, you depart for Borgova, intent on finding out what exactly has happened, and to bring peace back to the land.

Of course, nothing is ever that simple...

A sequel was released on May 22, 2014. In it, Van Helsing leads the Borgovian Resistance against the {{Mad Scientist}}s that rule the land.

!!This game provides examples of:
----
* AnAdventurerIsYou: In the first game, Van Helsing can be customized to play in whatever style you prefer. The later games add specific classes with unique abilities and equipment.
* AbsurdlyLowLevelCap: 30, which is rather low for a HackAndSlash. However, Neocore has stated that they have an update planned that will introduce a reward system so you can continue to improve Van Helsing even after you hit the cap.
* AscendedExtra: The TowerDefense mission of the first game got expanded in the second with many more of them in the second with more features and maps. And ''now'' the developers are making a TowerDefence standalone game called ''Deathtrap''...
* ClicheStorm: In the first game, the end boss's dialogue is variations on standard cliches, lampshaded by Van Helsing and Katarina.
* DeadpanSnarker: Van Helsing and Katarina. ''Especially'' Katarina.
* DualWielding: Longsword class weapons.
* DudeWheresMyRespect: Van Helsing, world famous monster hunter, is treated like dirt by pretty much everyone he encounters. Early in the game, he has to pretend to be Katarina's ''manservant'' (more "manservent") just to get into the first town.
* TheEngineer: The Arcane Mechanist class focuses on using {{BFG}}s, drones and explosives to deal with enemies. In the third game, the Constructor has a mobile weapons platform that can be used to create turrets and constructs while also dealing out damage on it's own.
* FollowTheLeader: This game shamelessly rips off the ''{{VideoGame/Diablo}}'' franchise. It's a very well made rip off, but [[SoOkayItsAverage that's that]].
* FourthWallObserver: Nutty Stefos.
* GunsAkimbo: Van Helsing wields his pistols like this.
* GutturalGrowler: Prisoner Seven of the sequel talks as if he's [[WesternAnimation/InspectorGadget Dr. Claw]].
* LaResistance: In the second game, Van Helsing is the leader of the Borgovian Resistance.
* LargeHam: Several characters. Since the characters that are ''not'' like this are lukewarm in their voice-acting quality, it really helps.
* MechaMooks: The Dreadsknechts.
* MercyRewarded: [[spoiler:If you spare Gruumsh the Werewolf Leader, one of his minions will later give you an epic trophy. Katarina lampshades this.]]
-->A reward for ''mercy?!'' What has happened to my beloved Borgovia?!
* TheMusketeer: Van Helsing can use a variety of melee weapons and ranged weapons.
* NiceHat: Van Helsing has a whole slew of stylish hats to equip.
* PublicDomainCharacter: It's Van Helsing! Wait, no it isn't. It's okay, half the NPCs made the same mistake.
* ScienceIsBad: Zigzagged. The BigBad is a MadScientist turning Borgovia into a mechanized hellhole, but Van Helsing himself is able to use science to his advantage in one of the class [=DLCs=]
* SpiritualSuccessor: Some have noticed this game bears a striking resemblance to the [[Film/VanHelsing movie]]. Both feature a gothic, steampunk supernatural Europe, a protagonist called "''Gabriel'' (instead of Abraham, his original name) Van Helsing", and both Van Helsings wear a wide-brim hat with fabric covering his mouth.
* SteamPunk: Borgovia, including MechaMooks.
* {{Uberwald}}: Borgovia, the country in which the games take place.
* ZergRush: There can be a ''lot'' of enemies onscreen at a time.
