Beast Busters is a rail shooter arcade game released by SNK in 1989 and ported to the Commodore Amiga and the Atari ST in 1990. A city has been invaded by the undead. Play as one of 3 militiamen named Johnny Justice, Paul Patriot and Sammy Stately, who must shoot their way out of the city.

The game was known for having irregular bosses, such as a zombie punk who mutates into a dog, or a jeep which starts coming to life. One stage ends with the militiamen having to rescue a female CIA agent from that stage's boss.

A sequel entitled Beast Busters: Second Nightmare was released in 1999 on the Hyper Neo Geo 64.

According to Paul Theroux, Michael Jackson owned a Beast Buster arcade machine and frequently took it with him on tour via cargo plane.[1]
