You play as an anonymous Internet user whose device suddenly gains access to the security system of the Edward Arms, a old Egyptian-themed American hotel. A young man named Eddie introduces himself as the creator of the system, as well as the architect of an extensive array of booby traps designed to capture intruders. However, Eddie has been locked in the basement and cut off from the controls, so it falls to you to take over the Edward Arms' cameras and traps, and protect the guests from a stream of invaders searching the hotel for ''something.''

Added DiffLines:

* BattleDiscretionShot: Perhaps as a response to the public backlash against ''VideoGame/NightTrap'', the game avoids showing any violence against civilian characters, usually cutting away just as they are hustled off-screen by an enemy. One character is choked to death by having his shoulders lightly squeezed. And the traps themselves are played more for {{Slapstick}} than grievous bodily harm.

Added DiffLines:

The gameplay improves from ''VideoGame/NightTrap'' in a few ways: there is a mini-map displaying where the guests and intruders are, removing the need to constantly switch between cameras; the trap timing and visual/audio cues are more lenient; and some enemies can use the traps ''against'' you, meaning that you have to disarm as well as arm traps.

An adventure InteractiveMovie video game produced by Creator/DigitalPictures and released for UsefulNotes/SegaCD, UsefulNotes/SegaSaturn and PC. It was re-released for iOS and Android in 2016 by Flash Film Works. The game has a similar format to their earlier game, ''VideoGame/NightTrap''.

The game takes place in a large and old apartment complex called the Edward Arms where a young man named Eddie has been locked in the basement, and needs your help to get him out. Of course, it's once you get him out of the basement that the fun ''really'' begins...

Well, as much as a FullMotionVideo game can actually be called 'fun'.

* AxCrazy: [[spoiler: Eddie]] is revealed to be this.
* BenevolentArchitecture: Eddie tells you at the beginning that he designed the entire security system with traps around the apartment building, because "the neighbourhood really sucks", according to him. Later, Lyle the Handyman will set up one trap "that even Eddie doesn't know about":[[spoiler: the phone line trap]].
* BigBadEnsemble: The gangsters, the secret society members, and [[spoiler: Eddie]].
* BigNo: [[spoiler: Eddie]] yells this a few times when you trap him at the end of the game.

* MamaDidntRaiseNoCriminal: [[spoiler: Eddie's]] mother knows that her son is insane. However, she is strongly in denial over it and even acts as his accomplice at one point.
** Specifically, at one point she presses a button that electronically locks the lobby doors shut so the "Grads" can't simply exit the building to escape from [[spoiler: Eddie]].

* ProperlyParanoid: Eddie set up traps all the building out of apparent paranoia. [[spoiler: The scary thing is that he is both right and wrong. He is right because there are Mafia goons as well as secret society members who start running loose in the building. He is wrong because he is dangerously insane and wants an Egyptian statue that everyone is after.]]
* PsychopathicManchild: [[spoiler: Eddie]] seems to be this.
* ScoobyDooHoax: Roughly around the middle of the game, an Egyptian mummy runs around trying to trap and/or kill people. [[spoiler: It's Eddie in disguise, and he dressed up like one so that he could get an Egyptian statue without anyone figuring out it was him]].
* StatingTheSimpleSolution: At the end of the game, Lyle has [[spoiler: Eddie]] at his mercy, and he asks everyone what should be done with the guy. Brutus says "Nail him!" However, Lyle ends up activating a trap that sends [[spoiler: Eddie]] flying around a couple of times, and then through a TrapDoor, supposedly sending him back to the basement.

* {{Unwinnable}}: There's only one real example, but it's a big one: [[spoiler: when Lyle the Handyman starts to talk about something he wants to show you, ''don't trap him'', despite what Eddie told you about Lyle causing trouble. Why? Because what Lyle wants to show you is a new trap. It's an electric cage trap, and you need this trap later on to stop Eddie from attacking people dressed as a mummy. If you trap Lyle before he can reveal the cage trap to you, you will be ''completely unable'' to beat Eddie later on and you'll lose the game.]]
