Splatterhouse is sidescrolling game where you play Rick, a parapsychology student who wants to save his girlfriend Jennifer in West Mansion (aka "Splatterhouse").
The game was released for the following systems:
1988 Arcade - Namco System 1 * Namco, Ltd. - Original Version
1992 Fujitsu FM-Towns/Marty - CD * Namco, Ltd. - Porting
1992 NEC PC Engine/TurboGrafx16 * Namco, Ltd. - Porting
2007 Nintendo Wii Virtual Console - Emulation (they ported the censored US TurboGrafx16 version).
Furthermore in 2010 another sequel with the same title was released on the next gen consoles Xbox360 and PS3. In this game they added a playable emulation of the original Splatterhouse game and this time they took the uncensored Japanese version.
The game is an absolute classic that everyone should've played. The fun factor is enormous - unfortunately, so is the difficulty level!
This is a comparison between the censored US version and the uncensored Japanese version (system: TurboGrafx16).
Additionally, the US version replaced the white mask with a red one, since Rick otherwise looked very similar to Jason Voorhees.
STAGE 6 - BOSS
In the original version, this boss is a cross; in the US version the boss instead is the head of a ghost.
After you defeated the cross, you reach an altar. In the US version, you instead enter an empty hall.
The final boss in the uncensored version appears underneath a cross, while in the US version he appears underneath a tombstone.
