I'm going to get in on this one very soon too.  It may be time to leave the TG-16 permanently out and playable. 

I think that would be a terrific idea @RickR! We will be hosting TurboGrafx-16 Squad Challenges at least 2-3 times a year, so I expect you'll get a lot of enjoyment out of that system.

16400 first try.

Woooweee, this is a perfect game for Halloween.  There is NOTHING more satisfying that smacking the living with a board.  I'm going to find time to play this one more.

Warning:  This is another game that doesn't show your score after you die.  You gotta be careful and hit that pause button, get your camera ready, then unpause and snap!

101,800 played on my original TG-16.  

Took this pic going into the second to last battle and sure enough, was dead soon after.

RickR is right, get your cameras ready - death comes quick.

Fellas, Splatterhouse is kicking my butt beyond belief. I've played it twice now, for an hour at a time. This is my best score. I scored 200 points more at the very end right after I took this photo. I'm going to celebrate Halloween with a little more Splatterhouse so we'll see if I can top this score. I had to jump in on this though!

My High Score: 15,400

:pole_position_blimp_big: Congratulations btbfilms76!


Congratulations @btbfilms76 your astounding score! I hope everybody had a fun and safe Halloween and enjoyed the heck out of Splatterhouse! I was never great at Splatterhouse but I remember picking it up for the first time and how it felt so advanced compared to the games we had gotten used to by then, like Mario Bros. Plus how graphic everything seemed at the time. I was glad to see everybody in "the TurboGrafx club" show up for this! Even despite the malware issue, which I am working to resolve quickly. You guys posted some great scores and I'm happy to have come in dead last in one of these Squad Challenges! You guys posted some impressive scores on a very challenging game. @btbfilms76 posted an astronomical score of 101,800 points, performed live in front of an audience on YouTube! Unreal! @Atari Creep ranked 2nd on the board with a score of 28,100 points, also performed live in front of an audience on Instagram Live! @RickR takes the 3rd position with a solid 16,400 points on his first try, and I round things out in 4th place after playing for a few hours to get 15,400 points. Congrats to @btbfilms76 and everyone who played in this squad challenge and shared a score! I'd like to encourage @btbfilms76 to post his new high score on the Scoreboard, and let's make sure this Challenge continues on!

NOTE: Our next High Score Squad Challenge will be for the original (DMG) Nintendo Game Boy. Be there!
