Hellboy: Dogs of the Night

Hellboy: Dogs of the Night

The first game starring the gruff half-demon Hellboy.


Hellboy: Dogs of the Night is a third-person Resident Evil clone developed by Cryo Studios and published by Cryo Interactive for the PC exclusively in Europe on December 2000. It was later ported to the Sony PlayStation by Hoplite, which was released by DreamCatcher exclusively in North America on April 4, 2004 (under the name Hellboy: Asylum Seeker).

An adaptation of the '90s Dark Horse Comics comic book hero Hellboy, Dogs of the Night brings the half-demon and his partner Sarah into Czechoslovakia to find a missing colleague. An error in the mission sends them to an insane asylum where one of the inmates is attempting to open a door to allow the forces of darkness into our world.

The game features tank controls, puzzle-solving, and exploration akin to its inspiration Resident Evil.
