It has been some time since your escape from that awful place, and only now have you regained your sanity. Even so, you are still haunted by the nightmares - dreams of your beloved Jennifer, who never escaped that place. "We can still save her," comes a voice from one side. You look, and it is what you expected it to be. It is the mask - that terrible mask with its supernatural powers - and wearing it will give you the only chance of defeating the demon-infested Splatterhouse and rescuing Jennifer from a slow and agonizing death at the hands of the creatures within.

Original in concept, which breathes new life into the tried and true platform fighting genre. Nice graphics, appropriate sound, fiendishly difficult gameplay. The latter of the two games is better in most respects than its predecessor.

Splatterhouse 2, your first trip back - limited side-scrolling action, but at least you can pick up and use the weapons and power-ups you find along your route.
