DOS - 1991
Description of Dangerous Dave in the Haunted Mansion
Second in id Software/SoftDisk's acclaimed Dangerous Dave series and first in the excellent platform trilogy entitled "All New Misadventures of Dangerous Dave," Dangerous Dave in The Haunted Mansion remains to this day one of the best shareware platformers ever made. MobyGames' description says it all:
"Dangerous Dave in the Haunted Mansion (a.k.a Dave 2) is a sequel to original surprisingly successful Dangerous Dave. A rather a-typical platform game, in Dave 2 you run through a huge mansion with many different levels, battling all kinds of monsters and collecting items (yes, mostly bonus points). Every so-and-so points you get an additional life, and every so-and-so levels you combat a boss.
One of the things that make this game unique is that instead of just having a limited amount of ammunition, you have a shotgun and can shoot 8 bullets at any given time. However, you must wait in order for Dave to reload his gun. This gives for some interesting scenes in which you frantically try to shoot your enemies and reload the gun just in time to shoot them again before they manage to kill you. Another thing that sets the game apart is the ability to aim your gun in several angles (generally: up, down or straight ahead), which again makes the game a great deal more interesting."

Used to play this one a lot, the thing that drove me crazy is that you couldn't save a game so you had to start out at level 1 every time you died.

An undocumented bonus for Dangerous Dave in Haunted Mansion is the ability to shoot through walls at enemies on the other side that are prevented by the wall from attacking Dave. Stand him next to the wall and jump up, then keep pressing him into the wall and use the down arrow to aim the gun as he comes down. He'll poke the gun through the wall just far enough to get one shot into a close enemy. It's easy enough to do once you get used to the method and can be repeated as needed. Screenshot forwarded.

Level 5 bonus area (on far left of screen & accessed from roof) seems corrupted. Any info?
