Fangman intro and screenshot

Fangman is a cute, Halloween style arcade game. In it, you are a vampire, who must trap humans (with the help of your trusty bats), while avoiding the roving sun, and any crosses in your path (which are created by two humans crossing paths). Each time you manage to trap and kill a human, it changes into a bat to help you. You do have the ability (once per life or screen) to gain a temporary 'super power' that gives you the ability to go over (and destroy) 3 crosses. If two bats cross each others paths, they will drop coffins for you to pick up, which are worth extra points.

My favorite part of the game, though, is the really bad halloween puns that it displays in between each round.
