Splatterhouse 2, known in Japan as Splatterhouse Part 2 is a sidescrolling beat ’em up video game released in 1992. Gameplay: Splatterhouse 2 features gameplay very similar to the first game. The player controls Rick through eight different stages, each two-dimensional. Rick’s attacks remain largely unchanged, able to punch, kick, jump kick, and slide kick, as well as use several weapons scattered throughout the levels. Each level features a boss at the end, often a grotesque monster. New additions to the gameplay include a difficulty setting and a password system for the English version (the Japanese version lacks a password feature), taken from Splatterhouse: Wanpaku Graffiti. Both GamePro and Game Informer loved this Genesis sequel, saying that Splatterhouse 2 was “definitely one not to pass up.” Abby Normal sums it up well: “If you’ve ever wanted to seek revenge on all those early childhood closet monsters, now’s your chance to do it vicariously through Splatterhouse 2.”
