I had some fun with this game as a kid.
Like most western platformers, the controls and hit detection were a mess, but levels weren't really that bad. They had some maze-like bullshittery here and there but for the most part it felt coherent.
It looked actually pretty good (although some bosses looked like they made them on MS Paint, but were really big sprites so it was OK), and the music and atmosphere is something else.
I didn't even know there were different versions, I think I played the Acclaim version, but not sure. What are the differences, if any? And why was it published by 2 different companies? I assume Sunsoft did the euro version?

It's still unclear if the unsettling vibes from this soundtrack were intentional or not. It's obviously meant to be a creepy halloween game, but I'm not sure many of the sound manipulation were actually intended to be as unsettling as they ended up being. Some of this sounds like some cursed frequency evil vibes music.

This song always reminded me of Mr Bungle, very unsettling.

It has some other more moody ones, but they're still unsettling

It's too early for nightmares, anon.

have you played it?

it's not unsettling because of its halloween/spooky theme, but because of how weird the game actually is.
