(Sega AM1's universe)
Boss Mode is a game mode used in both the Sega Saturn and PC ports of The House of the Dead. This mode is specifically for killing every boss in the game in their respective scenarios, each ranked based on how much time the player(s) spent to defeat the boss.
All the bosses are made available from the beginning, therefore the player(s) can choose to fight any of the bosses in any order. Alternatively, there is also the "Fight All" option, which gives the player(s) the choice of fighting all the bosses in order with the maximum of five lives each (starting from Chariot and ending with Magician). Whereas the lives are replenished on each boss fights, the amount of time spent will proceed as normal.
