A Halloween-themed game with lots of animated blood and gore, by the standards of the time. You play a kid named Johnny Dash, and your dog has been stolen by monsters, along with all of the other pets in the neighborhood. Armed with only a slingshot, Johnny must rescue all of the cats and dogs in each level in order to advance. Along the way there are some power-ups, such a triple shot, heavy shot, and missile shot. Version 2.1 was also released as "Monster Bash Lite", which included only the first three levels to make it a smaller download. There are 3 episodes in this game, creatively named Part 1, Part 2, and Part 3, with only the first episode playable in the shareware version.

Cheat Codes

Customer Cheat

In the registered version only, you can press the [Z] and [F10] keys down simultaneously to receive five lives. Hold down [Z] first; since the [F10] key, by itself, has meaning in the game, the cheat won't work if you push both down at the same time and the [F10] is the first to register.
