Hello Neighbor is a stealth horror game about sneaking into your neighbor's house to figure out what horrible secrets he's hiding in the basement. You play against an advanced AI that learns from your every move. Really enjoying climbing through that backyard window? Expect a bear trap there. Sneaking through the front door? There'll be cameras there soon. Trying to escape? The Neighbor will find a shortcut and catch you.

Pulling off a Super Mario Run
This game is great, as an AI learns each and every step in this hide and seek house. But the free trial only gives you a taste of the game. Because of that, I have two problems with the game: 1, You have to pay $15 for act 2-3. Just like Super Mario Run. they only allow you to play up to world 1 and play Toad Rally in the free trial of the game, and you have to pay $10 for the full game. It’s tedious and overpriced. Most mobile games that are pay-to-play (such as Minecraft or Plague Inc.) only cost about $2-7 for most or basically all the game has to offer to the player.
2, Each act in the game takes approximately 15-20 minutes for the average player. So the game takes up to 2-4 hours to beat. Most paid games like Minecraft or Terraria don’t really HAVE an end, unless you decide to end it yourself by achieving a goal of some sort. But other games that DO have an end like Infinity Blade takes approximately 5-7 or even 8 hours for the average player to complete, and it’s $5-7.
Basically what I’m saying is games that require you to pay to get access to the full game is overpriced, overrated, and shorter than it should be. (Like Hello Neighbor and Super Mario Run.)
I’m giving it 3 stars because 1. it does take a giant leap in the horror genre because of learning AI, 2. because its a nice game to play on the road (better at night) and 3. Because I’m a nice guy in general so you get +1 star.
Wished it was better
I was so exited when this game which I loved watching you tubers play was available on mobile and also for free. However upon learning the the full game had to be purchased separately and was very expensive I was disappointed. However I was still willing to give act one a try but was again disappointed with all the other issues with the game.
Similar to what I have all ready read the controls could definitely use a lot of improvement as it is difficult the activate certain controls most commonly walking as you just get stuck sometimes and the joy stick would not react.
The upon learning that the steal series controller work for the game I got really exited as it was much easier to control. However I was again disappointed when I found out that a lot of things were not fleshed out for example not being able to pick up items, open doors or as a matter a fact activate anything with the controller instead having to use the controls on the screen.
While I noticed some other problems like some of the tap controls being very unresponsive the previous mentioned issues with the basic and necessary controls made me not want to continue playing.
The controls and responsiveness of those controls need a big overhaul, as well as if there is support for the controller, make it full support.
Well that’s frustrating
Update: well it’s been a couple of weeks since the game released, they have even done a game update for “bug fixes” yet so many devices STILL can’t use the game. The $15 for the full game doesn’t even bother me, I’m willing to pay that. I realize it takes a lot of time and effort into building a game. You pay for games on your Xbox/PS why would games on your phone be any different?!? What does bother me is the App Store specifically says it DOES work for my device as it clearly says the same for many other people. That is misleading and it really seems like developers don’t really give a $h!+. EITHER MAKE THE GAME AVAILABLE FOR THE DEVICES IT SAYS DOES WORK ON OR CHANGE THE SPECS STATED IN THE APP STORE. Because now you're starting to look like scammers and intentionally ripping people off. Giving it one more month for something to change. After that, I’m done and will not continue trying with this game.
The App Store tells me my iPad (iPad Air) is compatible with this game. I download it and try to go into the game and get a message that tells me “unfortunately this game is not compatible with your device. Check the App Store for compatibility...blah, blah, blah” WTH!?! The App Store says it IS compatible!! And yes my iPad is running the most recent IOS update! PLEASE FIX THIS!!!!! I’ll change the review when I can actually play the game!
