Crazy Credits

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.

A breakthrough in video games
1 April 1999 | by (East Tennessee) – See all my reviews

This is the game that introduced the ratings system in video games as we know it today. The depiction of blood sucking vampires chasing girls in skimpy outfits, along with the concept of the game, makes this one of the greatest games of all time. It is a great game even though Sega CD was a bomb as a video game system. Night Trap is a live action video game in which you decide what the outcome of the game. If you are good enough, then you can save the girls, otherwise the girls are a feast for the vampires (called Oggers). Plato's performance is nothing to brag about, but the game is very exciting and fun. A true classic in video game technology that spawned other Sega CD games like Ground Zero Texas, Double Switch, and Mad Dog McCree just to name a few, that uses real actors in the game play.
