Did You Know?


Just before Hasbro's video game system NEMO was about to be officially launched alongside Night Trap and Sewer Shark (1992) at the start of 1989, the worst happened - Hasbro pulled the plug (citing the high cost of the hardware). Tom Zito, General Manager of Hasbro Interactive's California based unit, then purchased all of the material related to the two abandoned games and founded his own company, called Digital Pictures.

Crazy Credits

EASTER EGG: In the original Sega CD version, when the photo tribute of Hasbro's late C.E.O., Stephen D. Hassenfeld appears at the end of the credits, pressing the button commands on the game controller: Up, A, A, A, A, A - will reveal hidden footage. This footage from 1986 shows Hasbro executives playing "Scene of the Crime" (the original title for Night Trap) on their NEMO system. Scrolling text appears over this footage at the bottom of the screen stating: Pawtucket, RI... December, 1986... First demonstration of prototype NEMO system to gathered Hasbro executives...

Still a great game.
3 November 2002 | by (Aryshire, Scotland) – See all my reviews

Night Trap is a hell of a game that keeps you in your toes from the start and it is one of the best games that you can get for the Sega CD. With the distinction of being a game that featured a hell of a murder theme and being one of the first games to spark a history making decision in the video game industry, there is plenty here that makes it worth having, simply because of the historical value. The story line, while cheesy with the dialog is still impressive and you can find enough here to keep your interest through all of the different scenes. if you're a collector, then this game is for you and even if you're a 32X/Sega CD owner, then this game is definitely for you.
