Nice episode- the in-game video quality has improved by leaps and bounds. It looks great now. I'm really happy to see more Clock Tower. There's tons to discover, so here's a few tips and suggestions if you don't feel like looking at a FAQ yet:
B (on the SNES controller) is the "Panic Button". Its only function is to escape dangerous confrontations: mash it like crazy when you're attacked and your health meter starts flashing.
At the start of a new game, thoroughly investigate the room with the two beds. You're missing something that'll help you evade Scissorman.
In the same room, there's also a key piece of information to discover. In this game, as your character learns (or overlooks) certain things, it will automatically alter the course of events down the line.
As you're walking down the hall and the music cue starts, you should faintly hear water dripping. Try going in the bathroom instead of the foyer.
Finally, be aware that many key items are randomized in location between each new game, which can drastically change your route through the mansion. While it is possible to finish the game without picking up any keys, it's never in your interest to avoid them.
Looking forward to future episodes!
