Splatterhouse Handheld Electronic Game
(Namco - 1988)
This LCD pocket sized Splatterhouse game is designed quite well and fits in your hands comfortably. The four directional buttons are easily manipulated by your left thumb and are responsive and quickly rebound when released. Your right thumb operates the mode, fire, sound and start buttons. The LCD screen is a on the small side and is wiped out easily by bright ambient light, but it is still big enough to show the arcade action without feeling claustrophobic.
There is an ACL (all clear) reset button recessed on the front to clear the system and put it into battery saving demo mode.
The battery compartment is on the back side of the unit and holds two AA batteries. The claim is that the batteries will last "months" between changes, but I have to replace them once month. I recommend that you take the batteries out if you do not plan on playing the game for a while.

Ok just wow! I love Splatterhouse it is one of my all time favorite games on the Turbografx-16/PC Engine and while i knew there were follow up games for it on the Sega Genesis and "SD" version of it on the Nintendo Famicom i had no clue there was a electronic handheld version of it...I so want one now.
