Video Game: Universal Monsters Online
Universal Monsters Online is a Multiplayer Online Battle Arena which went live in 2012. As its name suggests, it takes place in the Universal Horror universe and puts players into the cloaks/bandages/excess body hair of old-school film monsters. These range from perennial classics to more obscure entries in the genre.

The playable characters include...

This game provides examples of:

  • Monster Mash
  • Mooks: Zombies and trolls.
  • Unlockable Content: By earning money in the game the player is able to access items, costumes and unlockable monsters.
  • You Don't Look Like You: Some monster designs are modeled closely around the film versions, while others take far more artistic license: Countess Zaleska looks completely different to her actress Gloria Holden, while the Man Made Monster is much more evil-looking than the unfortunate schmuck played by Lon Chaney Jr. In some cases, the original designs are available as unlockable costumes.
