Clock Tower: The First Fear

leave a comment »

I mentioned Clock Tower in the Dark Visions post and if you liked that one, you should give this a try. You play Jennifer, one of a group of orphans recently adopted (sight-unseen) by wealthy recluse Mr. Barrows. You’re taken to his creepy mansion called the Clock Tower and things go pretty much just as you’d expect them to whenever innocent orphans meet scary houses.

The gameplay is unusual and requires a bit of determination. You will run into the horror that lurks in the mansion, and you won’t be a match for it. You’ll have to hide or flee if you want to survive. Be sure to save often. The tense feeling of helplessness the game creates is one of the reasons Clock Tower has been called the scariest game ever made for the Super Nintendo.

Clock Tower was never officially released outside of Japan, but there is an unofficial English translated ROM floating around that just requires an SNES emulator to play.
