The journey to the church is long, and perhaps this made encounters with Silent Hill's inhuman inhabitants inevitably. Blaster fire from the probe droid, phaser fire from Data, and pulse rifle fire from Doug and Heather/Cheryl make most encounters relatively short and harmless, though.
However, as they reach an intersection, halfway to their destination, several new monsters emerge from the mist to assail the heroes as they move through the fogged streets.
The first to part the mists in front of the group is a horrible amalgam of flesh, clockwork, and pipes, some periodically hissing steam. Humanoid in shape with a head covered in wrapped wires, rusted metal erupts from bloodied flesh in several places across its body. It staggers forward, alternating between a mechanical, steady pace, and a manic, uncontrolled dash. Thin, metal tendrils that writhe with a life of their own extend from its right hand. Three more follow the first from the mist, heading directly towards the group.
