MiSTer FPGA – Splatterhouse 2 (スプラッターハウスPART2) / Genesis (Mega Drive)



I enjoyed the original Splatterhouse in arcades, and when I played the PC Engine port last year, but this one didn’t really live up to the original, IMO. When boiled down to its essence, this is little more than an action-based game of memory with questionable hit detection. Still worth a play though, as it does feature some decent pixel art and music on Genesis/Mega Drive.

There is little room for improvisation in this game and reflexes are almost completely unnecessary when playing. It’s all about memorizing a bunch of sequences that for the most part could have been just as entertaining as a FMV/QTE game.

In this video I played to stage VII with one credit, where I reached a brickwall at a section where apparitions fly at you from all directions on the screen, requiring you to memorize a drawn-out and boring sequence that unfortunately blocks the way to some nice pixel art at the end of the game. It’s not hard to keep feeding credits to get past this point, since there are infinite continues, and the end of the game is worth seeing for the artwork at least.
