Description

Dangerous Dave in the Haunted Mansion (a.k.a Dave 2) is a sequel to Dangerous Dave. In this side-scrolling action game you run through a huge mansion with many different levels, battling all kinds of monsters and collecting items (mostly bonus points). Every so-and-so points you get an additional life, and every so-and-so levels you combat a boss.

One of the things that make this game unique is that instead of just having a limited amount of ammunition, you have a shotgun and can shoot 8 bullets at any given time. However, you must wait in order for Dave to reload his gun. Another thing that sets the game apart is the ability to aim your gun in several angles (generally: up, down or straight ahead).

Trivia

"Old lady"

The knife-throwing creature which is first encountered on upper floors of the first level was affectionately called "old lady" by many fans, though it is actually a male hunchback, similar to classical Igor from Frankenstein movies.

Shotgun

This is the first game the original id Software crew wrote that has a shotgun in it.

Violence

Adrian Carmack originally made the art much gorier than it is in the final version. Softdisk wanted the gore out, so he had to tone it down.
