    Hello everyone!
    I decided to make this thread called "Let's retro-play!" in order for tempers to know, play and discuss about hidden gems that might never get a chance to shine otherwise after being lost in generational changes.
    If this catches on more people could do something similar with other games
    Today I bring you Clock Tower:

    Clock Tower is a 2D point-and-click survival horror developed by Human Entertainment in 1995 for the SNES/Super Famicom, which spawned a few (bad) ports and sequels that were met with mild success.
    However, it was never released outside of Japan, but thanks to the kind people over at Aeon Genesis it was translated on 2001.
    Don't let the point-and-click part discourage you because the game is quite thrilling really, specially when the main character enters in panic. Besides being one of the few 2D point-and-click survival horror games it also has a high replay value since it has eight different endings!
    The plot is as follows, taken from it's Wikipedia page:

    The game is quite small as most SNES games and doesn't require any special stuff, unlike Star Ocean.
    Now for some screens!
    Warning: Spoilers inside!
    I can't provide you with the rom of it, but I can provide you with the translation patch which you can find here. Credit goes to Aeon Genesis of course.

    I played this and never got past the beginning where everybody vanishes.

    I just couldn't figure out what to do. >>;

    It isn't a review, if it was I'd have rated it, besides I didn't get in the details. I WANT MOAR PEOPLE TO PLAY IT.
    And Rydian, you could use a guide, even though it totally ruins the game.

    That was pretty much the objective of the retro game reviews, too.
    The only real difference was the scoring.
    Just pointing out the similarities,
    not trying to gripe.
