Chiller 2 by Cosine Systems is a multi-level single-screen platform game inspired by the Mastertronic game Chiller.
The aim of the game is to collect 20 crosses on each level while avoiding all sorts of nasty ghouls, witches, and critters that drain your energy when you make contact with them. While you’re at it, make sure you also look out for where you stand as each level is littered with poisonous mushrooms that will also result in a loss of energy.
There are 12 challenging creepy levels for you to complete so I hope you are not afraid of the dark.
On the title screen, select to play as either the boy or the girl by pulling left or right on the joystick. The boy is able to absorb collisions better – losing energy at a slower rate than the girl. However, the girl is a little lighter than the boy, allowing her to stay in the air a fraction longer when jumping – making it easier to cross larger gaps or reach higher platforms.
Press FIRE to play from Level 1 or press F7 to commence from the level reached in your previous game.
