Did You Know?


The Sega CD game was pulled from retail store shelves in late 1993 as a result of the controversy and congressional hearings. However, after the controversy died down and the ESRB rating system became standard use in late 1994, the game was re-released for several systems: Sega CD (with new packaging), Sega CD 32X, 3DO, DOS and Macintosh. The original Sega CD release is now considered a collector's item. See more »

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.

Excellent video game
18 December 2002 | by FrostySnowbroSee all my reviews

Despite all the trouble this game caused for the gaming industry, it was still an excellent game, especially for those who appreicate the B-Movie Genre. Dana Plato was great as Kelli and it gives you the feel that you are inside the B-Movie. Most of it you didn't understand but that didn't take away the feel of the game. I hope this gets re-released as a DVD, so we can actually watch the movie inside of playing the video game. If you find it at a used store, buy it. It's worth it just to see the small movie within.
