PHANTOMS of Manhattan

What is PHANTOMS of Manhattan?

PHANTOMS of Manhattan is a cooperative game for 2-5 players. Magic, mysticism, and the occult; these things have always existed in the shadows. From time to time, those creatures that lurk in these shadows sometimes spill into the light, creating chaos, panic, and terror. The Paranormal Hazard Assessment, Neutralization, and Transportation Office of Metaphysical Sciences (known as the PHANTOMS), established by Julian Tyler, have made it their mission to catch these evils and keep them from harming anyone ever again. As of late, it seems Manhattan’s paranormal activity has been acting up, and the PHANTOMS fear that this is a sinister portent of things yet to come.

Members of the PHANTOMS, known as Paranormal Hazard Dispatch (or PHDs), fight the evil every way they can, and must choose to work together, or set off on their own in order to follow up on leads that have been called in by the residents of Manhattan. It is important to be available, because if a location has too much activity, the area will be evacuated and declared condemned! If too many locations condemn around Manhattan, it will become a ghost town… literally!

As PHDs capture and suppress the supernatural, they’ll earn money that will allow them to further research the paranormal and how to prevent it from spilling into our world. Ultimately, there is always the fear that a greater evil is behind all of the activity, and it must be discovered and ended, or else there may not be a world left to protect.

In PHANTOMS of Manhattan, players take on the role of the PHDs as they clean up Manhattan, battle against unknown entities, and search for the end to their waking nightmare. Being able to combat the supernatural is an experimental science at best, and as you capture creatures you'll earn money to upgrade and further your efforts. PHANTOMS of Manhattan has 40+ bosses to compete against, chosen based on gameplay during the game, so you never know what you can expect around the next shadowy alley. PHDs must work together if they want to have any hope of saving the city, or even the world!
