The Black Heart is a one on one fighting game that manages to make fighting games scary, as six freaky creatures fight to wield the power of a dead king’s heart.
The original version of The Black Heart was a M.U.G.E.N. game that was released ten years ago, but the developer is remastering the game with new graphics, programming, story, music and sound to celebrate its 10 year anniversary. It features six playable characters (and one boss), each of which have a selection of freaky special moves and horrifying fatalities. Each of the characters also have their own grim stories that play out in the story mode (though only two of the six chapters are complete so far).
The original The Black Heart garnered a lot of praise for its fun combat, freaky characters and brutal special moves/fatalities. This remaster maintains the classic gameplay but it looks and sounds so much better. The levels and character animation look superb and the story cutscenes have even been reworked. It’s also genuinely scary at times – which is pretty surprising for a fighting game!
