Desolator is an overhead beat-'em-up arcade game originally released in the arcades as Kyros (Kyros no Yakata in Japan). It was developed by ADK and released in 1986.

Sega are credited in many of the home conversions of the game, suggesting that they may have held the license to the game in Europe for a period. It is unknown whether this includes the arcade original (possibly called Halls of Kairos/Halls of Kyros?), but seems to include home ports to the Amstrad CPC, Atari ST, Commodore 64 and ZX Spectrum home computers. Unusually there is no Amiga version, however there is an unrelated MSX game by Gremiln Graphics.

Desolator is said to have heavily influenced Zombies Ate My Neighbors.
