|Alyssa Hale isn't like other 17-year old girls; she's been through intense psychotherapy to eliminate a murderous apparition that resides in her mind. Before her therapy, she would have horrific visions filled with violent acts involving the murder of her friends. Though she could never clearly make out who was doing this, the visions would end with Alyssa looking at her dead friends with a knife in her hand.|
The only thing she knows about the possessive apparition is his name, Mr. Bates. It was also discovered that her amulet was a link between her personalities; the pendant protects her psyche from harm or possession. When Alyssa isn't wearing or holding the amulet, Mr. Bates can invade her thoughts at any time...
With that in mind, Alyssa traveled to the town of Salinas to visit Mr. Phillip Tate, a friend of the family's. As Phillip and his wife Kathryn Tate were awaiting her arrival, there was an ominous knock at the door. What happened next is a bit of a mystery; as Kathryn opened the door, she unleashed a blood-curdling scream.
When Alyssa finally arrived at the Tate house, everyone was gone and there was a sense of horror in the air. Something was definitely amiss as she walked around the abandoned house. As Alyssa continued her search, she discovered a rotting corpse lying in a pool of yellow blood. And thus begins the story of Clock Tower II: The Struggle Within.
Players assume the role of Alyssa and her mysterious persona Mr. Bates in an all-new bone-chilling point-and-click adventure. Taking gameplay elements from the original title, Clock Tower II: The Struggle Within features three episodes that unravel the murderous plot, 13 different endings and an inventory system that holds numerous items.
The key to solving puzzles and progressing through each episode is found within Alyssa's amulet. When she places the pendant in a safe place, Mr. Bates can then enter her psyche and take over her body. And while Alyssa may not like it, this is the only way players will be able to solve the mystery. Mr. Bates can see and interact with things that Alyssa cannot!
Like the original Clock Tower, players will use the point-and-click method to move the protagonist from screen to screen and interact with hot-spotted items. Picking up items is extremely important for episode progression -- be sure to comb every area thoroughly for keys and clues! In addition to inventory items, players will also come across hints that are viewable at the Pamphlet screen. This screen also includes an ending list and a mystery gameplay option that is unlocked "after certain conditions have been met."
Additionally, Alyssa will interact with a cast of characters including the moody Shannon Lewis; Mr. Bowman, an aggressive newspaper reporter; detective Alex Corey; and Allen Hale, a prominent hospital director (and Alyssa's father). Whereas the original game had the murderous Scissorman, Clock Tower II: The Struggle Within features a few pathos including George Maxwell, a devil mask-wearing killer with a large butcher knife and Stephanie Tate, a possessed seven-year old maniac.
When players come in contact with either of these psychopaths, the Panic or Escape modes become initiated. During a Panic situation, the cursor flashes red and you'll have to press the Square button repeatedly to escape. The Escape mode involves running away from the murderous beings and using objects in any given room to fight off the enemy.
Alyssa's fate is in your hands. If you succeed, you'll uncover the mysteries behind Clock Tower II: The Struggle Within; fail and she'll meet with a brutal demise.

The game starts off with Alyssa's Uncle and his wife talking about the Maxwell Curse, they hear a scream in the next room and go to find what that was about. then it shifts to Alyssa who comes home to find that the house is being terrorized by Stephanie, who is either her little niece or cousin, i'm not sure, but she's on a killing spree, cutting and dismembering her own family members. Alyssa finds body parts in tubs, rooms, tables with mysterious lime green liquid around it. This is the first level out of three, the second is the hospital where nurses,doctors and patiences are contaminate with that lime stuff and then she goes to a building, almost like an apartment of some sort.
Alyssa can turn into Mr. Bates, its an entity that takes over her mind and body. Mr. Bates can do things that Alyssa can't, such as fire pistols and shotguns, stun enemies , or clear away obsticles for Alyssa. The gameplay was probably orginally made for pc, since all you do is click, click and click and click where you want her to go.
Alyssa can only be hit two times, when she is attacked once, the clicker arrow will turn yellow, then red, then she'll die. her onlyway of attacking an enemy physcially is if she finds a broom, pole or something to throw at them. enemies don't go away either, they just randomly come back. there are infinite first aids i believe.
The are A though Z endings, well they are not really endings but...its hard to explain.
if you like horror games, this is one of them
This is the second installment in the Clock Tower series of games. The game boasts many different endings and has a respectable amount of replayability. It's not as scary as the first game was but it does have it's moments. It's mostly a point and click game but you can use the D pad on your controller for certain movements during the game. Having played Clock Tower 3 first and then having played the other two games in the series it sure was a change in how the game is essentially played. The graphics aren't all that great but then again keep in mind this game was made many years ago. Overall I would give this game a 3.5 out of 5 stars rating just simply because of the point and click and also that sometimes it can be hard to figure out what to do next to advance yourself in the game.
One of the very first games to have different outcomes in the storyline. It is one of the first to also be a hit sensation from the first clock tower with the famous Scissor man. Try to survive and try not to worry about saving anyone they will all die in the end and scissor man will always follow!
