Oh, what the heck! Let’s take a look at some horror-inspired NES box art!
Xenophobe (1988) – Xenophobe was an arcade game ported to multiple home consoles, but the box art is unique for each system. Hmm… What does this remind you of? Could it be… ALIEN ???
Uninvited (1991) – Originally a computer game, the art for the NES port is downright inspired.
Shadowgate (1989) – Cartoon horror art, but the PC version is fairly creepy.
Ghoul School (1992) – I don’t know if this game is any good or not, but I love the title, love the art and love the premise (ghosts terrorizing a school on HALLOWEEN).
Ghosts ‘n Goblins (1986) – I’ve never been a big fan of this game. I’ve played it, it has a fun look, but I just can’t get into it.
Dr. Chaos (1988) – Easily one of the coolest pieces of NES cover art.
