    Title Forces of Darkness
    Version1.00
    Description It's Halloween and the frightful forces of darkness fresh out of the bowels of Hell have risen once again to frighten children and extinguish all light in the Universe. It is your task alone to stop the waves of hellish, supernatural terror and send the evil, twisted hoardes back to whence they came. Failure to do so will, sadly, condemn all human life to a miserable existence in the eternal cold darkness. (So not too much pressure, then.)
