1WaveBoyTue 18th Oct 2011 The Retro Dungeon of Halloween Horrors! Any of these Scararific Retro Horrors ring a Spooky Belmont Bell?Halloween is among us, the bats are in full force, the demons are being summoned, zombies have awoken, and I'm SURE many of you have a couple or so Spooky little titles lined up to rock your haunted Halloween candy infested house of horrors. That aside, this thread is about the horror titles you have played and remember, OR plan on playing for this Halloween. Be it on the Nes, Genesis, SNES, Atari 2600 ect ect. And not 'horror' as in horribly shocking scary bad like Super Man 64 or E.T for the Atari which would both be an incredibly stale and 'beaten to death by a raging mutated Goblin horse' answer anyways. I'm going to start out with a more obscure ghoulish Nes title that hasn't exactly garnered a solid reputation(And for good reason) but I'm sure it left a teeny weeny little spooky dent in a few of our fragile little early 90's Krang brains. And that horrific little pile of ghoulish demon poop is none other than.....Ghoul School! All I remember was hating this little frustrating monster infested school wromp with a passion....Not only will the main dreaded School Hallway theme fry your brains with blistering Fry guy repetition, but the sloppy controls, grating and unfair wonky combat and boring as hell bare bones gameplay will throw you off the Captain Hook deep end. You play as some Punk named Spike O'Hara, who's boasting some sloppy controls in an unfun draging, tedious chore-trip through this Demon infested School of hell. I don't think I made it too far in this one, but it was hands down one of the worst NES games i ever came across....Curse that creepy radically awesome NES Box Art in the rental NES section at my Local Video store for fooling me!Back in the day, when you rented a game you just hoped for the best. You couldn't go online to check for reviews, either you saw the commercials, had a subscription to Nintendo Power or maybe watched GamePro TV. In this case, well....I didn't know, and I hoped for the best...At least it's not as bad as Home Alone.lolHere's the plot just for kicks. Which I actually find to be pretty hilarious(the school name is too awesome) and is another pure example of a funky plot that you just can't find on games in this day and age, yet on the NES stuff like this was in full force. "While taking the usual shortcut home through the cemetery from Cool School High, Senior Spike O'Hara found a strange, glowing skull. He put it in his backpack to show to his anatomy teacher the next day which happened to be Halloween Eve. When Dr. Femur wanted to keep the skull for a special study, Spike was concerned because it appeared that the skull was bigger than it was the day before. Little did anyone know that the skull had begun transmitting its message to the realm of the dead. The ghouls had begun their assault...Ghosts/demons have taken over Cool School High. They have turned the teachers and football team into demons. To make matters worse, they have kidnapped Samantha Pompom, the head cheerleader. The player assumes the role of Spike O'Hara as he tries to defeat the ghouls and rescue Samantha. He will have to explore more than 200 rooms and defeat a large number of enemies. There are items and weapons throughout the game that O'Hara can find to defeat the ghouls, though many of these items are well-hidden."So yup! What scary hair raising spookAlicious Retro beasties do YOU guys plan on playing this Halloween? On Another note, I shall now leave you with some Halloweenish Genesis 16-bit tunage! muhahahahahahaa Edited on Wed 19th October, 2011 @ 09:08 by WaveBoy Currently Playing: TMNT II: The Arcade game 80's Fanatic & King of NES Tekkidome!
