Ah good old Splatterhouse. I remember these games on the Mega Drive back in the day and although I never played them in the early 90’s, I did do some catching up lately. They are great games, really tapping into the shlock-horror movie culture. All the cliches are there, giant hatchets, hockey masks, shuffling ghouls, floating furniture and more.
If you’re a fan, I’d highly recommend the Splatterhouse Trilogy on OpenBoR, which three new Splatterhouse titles all rolled into one neat package.You can download the full set or each of the individual chapters; Deception of the Mask, Journey Through Hell and Back to Light.
Developer Orochi X has based each part of the trilogy on parts of the original games, all dolled up with a fresh lick of graphical clout. It’s also a proper side scroller now, with depth of field, special attacks and more. if you like your retro, you will love this.
