This coin-op conversion of Splatterhouse
is the second game in the series (after Splatterhouse: Wanpaku Graffiti
on the NES) which was later continued on the SEGA Genesis.
Rick and his girlfriend Jennifer enter West Mansion (known as Splatterhouse) to study Dr. West's parapsychology teachings for a school project. After a flash of lightning and a scream, Jennifer is gone, and Rick is left wearing the Terror Mask, which gives the wearer great strength.
Rick must survive seven blood-soaked levels full of corpses, demons, and other disturbing creatures in this arcade side-scrolling beat-em-up. Several weapons are at Rick's disposal throughout the house, such as a meat cleaver, a two by four, and a shotgun. If Rick wants to find Jennifer alive, he must move quickly through the floors of the mansion.... as a happy reunion is not always guaranteed.

The Press Says
There are currently no topics for this game.
The US version of the game removed an upside-down cross that was originally a stage boss and also changed the design and color of Rick's mask to red, possibly to avoid connections with Jason Vorhees from the Friday the 13th movies.
