      Story In a luxurious old apartment building, a young man by the name of Eddie has been locked in the basement and you need to help him escape. The tenants of the building each have their own agenda/plot that eventually becomes interwoven with Eddie’s which range from Mafia hit men, a handyman who happens to be Eddie’s dad, a reporter who has a crush on Eddie, a treasure hunter, a love triangle, and even a scroll and key society who dresses up like The Riddler.

      See, Eddie is a mastermind of sorts who knows all about the building’s secret hidden treasure that everyone is trying to find. So your goal is to keep the baddies away via traps and cameras while trying to find the security code

      to get Eddie out of his basement so that he can be on top of things.

      Graphics This is another one of those Digital Picture games (i.e. “Night Trap”, “Ground Zero: Texas”, and “Corpse Killer”), you can expect plenty of full motion video clips all throughout an old and attractive apartment complex.

      Controls Controls? Well you don’t control too much in a Digital Pictures game where all you do most of the time is sit back, watch mini-movies, surveillance a location and press a trapdoor whenever someone steps on it. This should be called “Night Trap 2″ because that’s just what it plays out to be like.

      Gameplay Speaking of “Night Trap”, this game is a lot more difficult. There’s ...

      • no room to take a breather at all as you are always on your toes, having to switch from one camera to the next, one room to the next, to see who’s in it, what’s going on, and whether or not you need to trap somebody. It’s not too hard to set up the wrong trap, hey, eventually the baddies in this get a little too smart for their own good and attempt to avoid your traps (i.e. people I mentioned earlier who dress up like Jim Carey from “Batman Forever”).

        Overall While this game has had a better production than “Night Trap”, there’s nearly no time to enjoy it because of the difficulty level, you really have to haul arse in order to move fast between cameras/rooms in order to set those traps. It’s

        funny how silly the plot of this game gets, it goes from romantic love affairs, a teen mastermind stuck in the basement, to mobsters and people in green outfits trying to find the building’s hidden treasures, and then to mummies (I’m not lying!) and dysfunctional families.

        The main star of the game is Eddie played by Corey Haim whom you really just want to punch in the face after he tells you several times how you’re not working hard enough to get him out of the basement he’s stuck in and how he’s tired of being there. Well, Eddie, maybe you should try on the player’s shoes for once and see if you enjoy doing that any better, you should be grateful, idiot. Then again, 80s teen stars who succumb to severe drug addiction don’t tend to think too straight I guess.
