Splatterhouse is an arcade game released by Namco. The game was later ported to the TurboGrafx 16 and later followed up by Splatterhouse 2 and Splatterhouse 3.

Story[edit | edit source]

Rick and his girlfriend, Jenifer, are parapsychology majors and they go to the parapsychologist, Dr. West. The game takes place in West's mansion which has been given the nickname, the Splatterhouse. As Rick enters the mansion, he is knocked out by some unknown assailant, while his girlfriend is captured. A mask finds Rick and attaches itself to his face giving him the ultra human strength he needs to fight his way through the mansion. Rick goes through the mansion, fighting ghouls and creatures in order to reach the end. The last boss of the game is Jenifer, who has been transformed into a monster.
