Dark Arms: Beast Busters is an action role-playing game released by SNK for Neo-Geo Pocket Color in 1999. It is the follow-up to the SNK arcade shooter Beast Busters. Dark Arms features a girl, Meghan Loughlin, whose job is to defeat and contain an outbreak of demons and act as a mediator between this world and the next. The game is unique in that the player can collect the spirits of the various demons and zombies they versus in the game with a gun known as The Catcher. The player's character can use captured spirits to 'feed' their weapons and evolve them into more powerful forms. For example, the Handgun evolves into the Sub Shotgun, which can evolve further into the Shotgun.
