Nightmare Fuel: Abadox

  • Despite it being NES game, the setting of Abadox is gruesome and horrifying, and the developers pulls all the punches to make the whole experience freaky. The main antagonist is a planet eating Eldritch Abomination that you must go inside in order to rescue Nazar's lover. Along the way, you must fight a variety of creatures, presumably parasites that live inside the alien. The first stage alone pits you against a giant skinless hellhound and a face that stretches its eyeballs at you by its optic nerves. The worst of these is the Cilia Monster; not only it's a really big foe, when you first encounter it, the music is replaced by heartbeats and it pulsates as you descend towards its weakpoint.
