Halloween Harry for some reason was repackaged ( among other edits ), with the name Alien Carnage. Personally I like the Halloween, better, as it was a unique title. I do not know the differences between two games asides the original shareware version of HH was limited to one stage, where you had to order the actual game to gain access to the rest.
However the owner of the game itself, considers it a different game for some reason.
In my opinion, it is because of the word "Halloween" in the title, and as we all know, many churchie's ( super religious folks ), in the west, do not get along with Halloween. Another idea might be, because of the "holiday" Purin, once again pointing the religious attributes.
Name the game "Alien Carnarge" pretty much give it a "Sci-fi" identity, automatically gives it more sales among religious people. Also the usage of the word Alien, probably felt restricted, due the common association with the movie itself. Finally Alien sounds more threatening then Halloween, especially with the fear of immigrants ( for people who read the news ).
In my opinion, the game has some taz-manian-devil, and "Thing" like enemies as well.
