The only I like better about the Genesis version is that in the SNES version your radar disappears when you transform into a monster or ghost. Seems like a bug.

>Squirtgun - basic weapon for one shot to kill monsters like zombies, pod people & gillmen. Becomes scarcer later on. You saved up right?
>Weedwhacker - Frankenstein & Chainsaw psychos (Don't waste this in on plants, it's a trick. Use as little as possible to clear alien fungus)

>Crucifix - ONLY use on Draculas
>Silverware - One shots werewolves
>Alien bubble gun - puts humanoid enemies in stasis briefly. Kills giant ants in one hit (an unintended side effect of the ants not matching the intended target? ie humans.
>Popsicles - One shots blobs
>Footballs - One shots football players
>Soda cans - The only way to damage ufos because they are the only projectile with an arc?
>Bazooka shells - One shots most enemies. Don't be tempted! You need a shit ton of these for the last boss

Were tomatoes good for anything?
I know plates were important but I can't remember why.

>> No.5921546

I believe you're right. Another reason to play on genesis

>> No.5921564

Plates make short work of Dr. Tongue's second form at the end of the game, even better than the bazooka.

I think Tomatoes were meant to be used for the Martian soldiers. Don't think they worked, though.

The Flamethrower (SNES only, if you can find it) should ONLY be used on the giant spider bosses. Each one takes about 200 rounds of concentrated fire, and you just barely have enough for both at 400.

Monster Potion is best for the sandworms and big babies. Don't move, as that just makes it wear off quick. Stay in one place and don't stop punching while they continue to lunge into your fists

Ghost Kid Potions are absolutely vital in water stages as they let you walk on water and grab the swimming neighbors before the gillmen do.

The fire extinguisher works on blobs as well. Just keep spraying after they freeze and they crumple away. As much as popsicles are the way to go, I've always run into moments when I hit them in range, only for them to do nothing.

You can also use soda cans to cheese your way through the giant head boss if you prefer not putting yourself in harm's way.

Well, yeah of course.
The Virtual Boy's red color and 3D seems like it would be a perfect fit for a horror game. I could see a Splatterhouse game working well for it.
It's too bad there really isn't a homebrew scene for it, but I can't imagine programming a game for VB would be easy.

Man, thanks for reminding me. I've got fond memories of riding my bike over to a friend's house just to play this game. I remember having nightmares about those killer doll things. I'ma grab the ROM now.

So, not quite retro but we are getting dangerously close to where people consider games of this era to be so: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b3p2JscH_oA&list=PLE7DlYarj-DeckgoK06YAaLYq3suac7dq&index=4

Vampire gives me good spooky vibes.

There was this game called "Funny Monsters For Tea" from the mid-90s that also came to mind, but I can't find so much as an article about it. If anyone remembers or knows wehre I can find it, it'd be much appreciated It's a kids game akin to the magic school bus series but I digress.
