Splatterhouse © 1990 Namco, Limited.
Splatterhouse is a side-scrolling horror themed action game developed by Namco, and conversion of the arcade game of the same name. It stars two young scientists interested in paranormal phenomenons, Rick Taylor and Jennifer Wills, who one day decide to investigate a strange old mansion that that has been known to harbor many terrifying secrets. The gloomy house, named the 'Splatterhouse' by the locals, is owned by Dr West, a renowned scientist rumored to conduct bizarre and gruesome experiments. One night, as they arrive at the mysterious mansion, a storm starts raging and they are forced to take shelter inside the dark place. They both come under attack and Rick falls unconscious. When he regains consciousness, he discovers that Jennifer is gone, and that a creepy mask with supernatural powers (the "Hell Mask") now covers his face. His body has also mutated into that of a repulsive, and yet tremendously powerful, burly creature. Rick must now explore the mansion and find his beloved Jennifer - but hordes of murky deadmen, impaled zombies, flesh eating worms and other nightmarish and grotesque creatures are now on the loose everywhere. Rick can punch with his bear fists and kick (low, jump kicks and slide kicks), and can also pick up weapons scattered throughout the game, such as a planks of wood (the 'two by four'), spears, a lethal meat cleaver or a shotgun. More than just enemies, the game also throws disguised booby traps and ominous obstacles at the player, such as sharp blades, spikes, bottomless pits and other lethal dangers. Splatterhouse consists of seven levels, and some stages even branch out (through holes in the ground or ladders) and allow the player to take alternate routes.
