Ratings and Reviews
Not as fun as you think it would be
When I read the description, the game sounded genuinely cool. As I began playing the game, I started to find out that the concept itself is great but the execution is pretty poor. Throughout the entire game you’re left confused with the slightest of directions. You end up wandering aimlessly and get lost for a while until the next part of the game. When you eventually find something, you’re left completely clueless as to what to do next because the mechanics of the game don’t work until 10 mins later after you’ve clicked on your screen for about 50 times. Eventually you get tired of waiting every time for the game to actually work making it not as fun as you thought it would be. Also the music is pretty annoying. It’s not even scary and it just unnecessarily blares in your ears at random times. Excessively loud does not always equal scary. I’d rather play the game on mute. Overall, it’s not really worth it in my opinion.
Wish there was a zero rating
This is the first time I have ever given a one rating on a product. I just have to on this one. As many have said on here, it sounded interesting. I downloaded and opened it. Really annoying and loud sound effects started. The script reminded me of an antique Atari game that my parents have tucked away in their basement now. Then, a screen or two later, the game seized up on me. It asked me to select a spot on the floor. I hit every possible spot on the screen and nothing happened. I realized that the game had simply frozen, unfortunately with the horrible sound effects continuing. I had to restart. That time the game didn’t even get that far. I had to reboot the entire system. Obviously, something is seriously wrong with this app. Good thing it was free. I feel like they should pay me for the lost time. I will be deleting it immediately.
Awesome start for AR!
Absolutely loved this! As a huge fan of horror, suspense, and mystery, I absolutely loved this, although it was so short I was left wanting more. But, it’s definitely worth the download. I’d love to see more stuff like this come out, it’s an amazing concept. To the developers: keep working on this idea, it would be amazing to have a much more intricate interface if able to, like an improved floor and wall plan of the rooms to ensure the objects in game aren’t out of reach for those playing in an apartment or something.
