Crypt Killer

Crypt Killer is a 1995 arcade video game produced by Konami. It was released in 1997 for the Sega Saturn and Sony PlayStation home consoles, in Japan for Microsoft Windows; the Saturn version makes use of the Saturn's various light guns, while the PlayStation version is compatible with the Naki Lunar Gun and the Konami Justifier. The game's scenery and characters are all 3D polygon models, while most of the enemies and their projectiles are 2D sprites; the players are "crypt raiders" guided by Galazon, the spirit of travels, who resembles a floating head to travel through variously themed caves and crypts in search of the "Eyes of Guidance" which would open the doors of fate. On their journey they are armed with a shotgun to fend off many mythical enemies, such as mummies, fish-men, an array of other monsters. One, two or three players travel through levels "on rails", as in the vast majority of light gun shooters. At certain points on each level the players choose their path by selecting to go one of two different ways.

The opening screen allows the player to choose from any of the six levels. There are three areas per level. At the end of each level, the player encounters a boss guarding the "Eyes of Guidance" needed to progress; the player can temporally upgrade their weapon by finding concealed more powerful guns such as a Gatling gun, grenade launcher, a more powerful shotgun, an automatic hidden behind breakable objects. In the console versions, for each life the player has three bombs which can destroy all enemies on screen; every time the player finds two Eyes of Guidance, an ending is revealed, although Galazon tells the players to keep playing until they clear all six levels. All endings start with placing the Eyes of Guidance in the statue; the eye obtained is either red or blue depending on the path chosen at the end of Act 2 in each level. Depending on the color combination of the two eyes that are obtained, the endings are: Normal/Good Ending: He encounters a skeleton, shoots it, says that he is somehow tricked by an ancient text.

The player finds the real treasure. This ending is reached if the first eye is blue and the other is red. Behind-The-Scenes Ending: The player directs a movie based from the game, it is revealed that the monsters are stunt men and actors; this ending is reached if both eyes are blue. Bad Ending: The player finds many treasure chests in a river which turns out to be fake, he is surrounded by all the bosses in the game. The player tries to escape but is killed; this ending is reached if both eyes are red. Legendary Sword Ending: The player finds a legendary sword, he activates its powers becoming its wielder. This ending is reached if the first eye is red and the other is blue. Reviewing the arcade version, a Next Generation critic praised Crypt Killer's ending but summed up that "besides the free-moving, hand-held sawed-off shotgun, enabling pump-handle reloading, this game blends in quite well with the pile of new laser-gun shooters with little distinction."The Saturn and PlayStation versions received overwhelmingly negative reviews, with critics deriding the pixelated and blocky graphics, the lack of scariness in the enemies' appearance, the numerous cheap hits, the player character's overdone acrobatics, which cause the perspective to spin and bounce around in a nauseating manner.

Lee Nutter of Sega Saturn Magazine was vehement in his criticism, remarking that "more fun could be derived from the Virtua Gun if you were to spend an entire evening pistol whipping yourself with it". A sidebar on the seven light gun games, released for the Saturn in the UK up to that point showed that Crypt Killer had the lowest rating from Sega Saturn Magazine. Dan Hsu of Electronic Gaming Monthly defended the game, saying it "deserves a look" due to its unique mythical theme, but his three co-reviewers gave negative assessments. GamePro remarked that "Although the action gets frantic, it never intensifies to the point of hysteria, the way a good shooter like Area 51 does." GameSpot's Jeff Kitts found the game's poor quality unforgivable since it came from the same company as the seminal light gun game Lethal Enforcers.

List of Charmed novels and short stories

The Charmed literary franchise is a series of novels and short stories based on the eponymous television show, which aired from 1998 to 2006. The franchise consists of forty-three novels and eleven short stories released in two anthologies, with ten guide books. Scholarly essay collections on the show were published; the first work in the series, The Power of Three, published in November 1999, is a novelization of the series pilot "Something Wicca This Way Comes". Writers of the novels had to obtain approval from Paramount Pictures or CBS Consumer Products to ensure that they followed the canon established for the television series. Writers Paul Ruditis and Pat Shand have discussed these regulations through their official Tumblr accounts. Between 1999 and 2008, forty-one novels were published by Simon & Schuster and were set during the same period as the events of the television series. A majority of the novels are original stories revolving around their allies. Ten novels are set between the show's first and third season, feature the Charmed Ones – Prue and Phoebe Halliwell – as the most powerful witches of all time.

Thirty-one novels are set after Prue's death in "All Hell Breaks Loose", starting with the novelization of the season four premiere "Charmed Again", include Piper and Phoebe's half-sister Paige Matthews. Two works, Seasons of the Witch and The Warren Witches, are anthologies of short stories. Various authors have written works in the series, including Diana G. Gallagher and Paul Ruditis, who co-authored two guidebooks, The Book of Three in 2004 and 2006. In 2015, HarperCollins acquired the rights to publish a second series of Charmed novels from CBS Consumer Products which owns the rights to the franchise; the first novel in this series, The War on Witches, was published in May 2015, the continuity of the narrative fits between the events of Charmed: Season 9 and Season 10 in the comic book series. Writers of all licensed Charmed literature must obtain studio approval of the content of the works – from Paramount Pictures until CBS Consumer Products acquired the rights to the franchise – in order to adhere to the conventions of the Charmed canon established by the television series.

According to Paul Ruditis, authors of Charmed novels and comics must maintain "the rules for playing in that universe" and "the studio still has to approve the direction we take" as writers. Following these regulations, authors are given creative license but "couldn't go and rewrite history, killing off established characters or creating romantic pairings that we'd never see on the show". Pat Shand, the writer of Charmed: Season 10, considered the novels and comics part of the Charmed canon and continuity; the comics reference the novels. While Michaels had first appeared in the season four episode "Lost and Bound", Ruditis had portrayed Tyler in the novel The Brewing Storm, Shand wanted to avoid inconsistencies or "retreading".
