Self-indulgent boring and beautiful
I wanted to love this game. I really did. It has beautifully creepy artwork, a wonderfully dark atmosphere, and a (initially) cryptic and intriguing plot. Sadly, the more you play, the more you realize that there's little beneath the surface - and to make matters worse, the developers make you repeat the same mundane action ad nauseum to highlight this lack of depth. You slowly crawl through a forest to find something that's never explained to you and then end up back at the same house to repeat it all over again. And the narrator spews overly cryptic messages that never amount to anything and reveal nothing - I just skipped through them after enough levels because it just wastes time and only serves to add "creepy" vibes to the game. The "rules" to the game are stupidly based on luck and chance. I really cant emphasize this enough - this is not a good game. The art is beautiful - but the game is not. Im shocked by all of the great reviews here (which convinced me to buy the game). Its not a horror masterpiece - its an exercise in patience. Also the swipe controls are VERY poorly implemented and often result the wrong action being performed...so even on a technical level, this game poorly performs. Two stars for the art direction and atmosphere. Everything else that actually makes this a game fails in all respects.
This game isn't scary because if grotesque monsters or intense popups. It's scary because it likes to get inside your head and stress you out. There are weird cryptic messages and noises hidden all over that don't seem to have any meaning other than to freak out the player, and it works. Whenever a monster enters your house, there is a feeling of panic that looms around until sunrise. However, none of these things are necessarily bad. One of the biggest things this game has going for it is it's beautiful art style that only adds to the atmosphere. Strongly recommended to any fan of the horror genre, or anyone interested in trying it out.
This is one of the best games I've ever played, especially on iOS. It's right up there with Tiger Style's games, The Silent Age, Sword & Sorcery, & Osmos. The atmosphere is absolutely chilling, but very fun at the same time. The graphics and art make for a very nostalgic experience, especially if you love Halloween. The jump scares are actually enjoyable rather than unbearable, which is a major plus in my book. The highlight of the game though is by far the sound design and soundtrack, very creepy and downright unnerving. Cannot praise this game enough.
