Complete Sonic's Splatterhouse v1.0

Alright, the second I've read about this game it already gave me curiosity for the whacky concept... and the second I played the game it didn't disappoint.
Even though Leech's backstory is horrifying, the actual game is kind of hilarious, it has that Horror-Comedy vibe that I am actually fond of, I think this part is the best executed one.

Of course the gameplay is not a slacker either, it's very fun to smash through enemies with all my repertoire of moves, it's fast and very snappy, I don't have much to say.

The graphics are a mixed bag, while good, many of them come from different games, so it becomes a bit jarring, on the other hand, the frankensteined enemies even tho they are that they still look alright, Leech looks very good too, he's very well animated and looks recognizeable from his official art.

Sound design and Music wise the game is also very good, even tho again, they come from different games, it goes well with the whole mood of the game, but what's original is the voice acting, even if it didn't wow me, it's serviceable enough and the fact they put effort into it is commendable, albeit I've heard some popping here and there, but that doesn't ruin it. I've thought at the start the game was too quiet, but that was a smart choice, otherwise the jumpscares would be killing my ears.

So all well an good, but I have one very itty bitty small problem that screw with the balance completely... THE BABIES, for some reason those enemies are the most that do damage and they are very punitive about it, they made me lose lifes and even continues, thanks to them I only have a few continues left. like I know, I know you wanted to punish me for getting caught in an acid pool, but killing me by allowing said pool to pile up? yikes! i'd propose to nerf this acid pool to make you take out like a quarter or even less of life, because a common enemy should not be this powerful, especially when I am trying to combat other things.

But with that taken out of the way, it is a good beat em up with that aforementioned Horror Comedy vibe, with the game being silly at some point while being serious at others, you have done very well, fine gentleman, I am looking forwards to that balancing.

PD: an interesting idea I had is to halven Dr. West's life and have him have two phases, so one half is for his "human" form with Robotnik's drill, and on the second half he transforms into Hell Chaos/Captain Mozzarella.
