Horror Story (1993)


Another mediocre platformer for the PC-Engine. At first sight it looks like a typical action game where you have to shoot enemies to kill them, but like a typical jump’n run you can also jump on enemies and abuse them as one-time platforms. You also have a double-jump ability, but it doesn’t work reliably, which is slightly annoying when you fall to your death because of it.

More reasons not to like the game: an annoying weapon upgrade system that forces you most of the time to take an upgrade you don’t want, passages where it’s nearly impossible to not get hit and an uninspired art direction.
