About This Game

Urban myths are stories that may or may not have been believed to be true. Unlike most, some are actually based on real events. One of them, takes place in a haunted forest, near a cemetery, on the borders of a city, near you. Many consider this place dangerous late at night, because there are things happening that nobody knows of or wants to know.

Real Horror Stories is a point and click horror adventure. The goal of the game is to clear each level. At first it may seem easy but the choices are not always what they seem. You will need to find the right combination of objects to click in order to proceed. Along the way you will encounter puzzles that you need to solve in order to advance to the next level. However, once you understand the gameplay , ghosts , demons and monsters jump out of nowhere to take or scare you! The game is very creepy, especially if you try to play it at night. You will definitely get into the mood immediately. Turn the lights off, put on your headphones and try it...

• The Ultimate edition of the popular internet game

This game is a pile of poop. Also, where is the "real" in these storys?
I mean you end up in hell, wow. Didn't know that there are actual and proven true reports of ppl being in hell?? So it's not even about real murders or ghost stories.

Yeah, just don't buy it, it's not even point and click its just...garbage.

Not worth a cent...actually I would not even recommend it if it was free.

One of the most boring and worthless games I have ever had the displeasure of beating.

Not a single beat scary and some of the "puzzles" don't make any sense.

This is one of the worst games I have ever played. There is no atmosphere only stupid "scary image" pop ups. The gameplay is awful. You just click on everything and hope to god something happens. But the absoulute worst part of this game is the puzzles. They have little to no explanation, and makeno sense whatsoever. You are better of playing a free point and click horror game on newgrounds. This is a terrible waste of money. Even if you get it for free DO NOT, I REPEAT DO NOT PLAY THIS GAME!

The very idea of this game is jump scare though graphics, sound and sudden pop of images during after after you solve the puzzle for each level.

Very simple and very baisc. This game did just that. The graphics are very nicely done and sound effect is also excellant.(especially enjoy the wind howling).

The puzzles are all pretty simple. I kinda lost count of the levels but there are less then 30 for sure when you reach the end of this game. Most of the puzzle are really easy and you can click the bottom part of each puzzle to exit it and reset the puzzle.

For people with big heart and not enjoy this kinda of scary. They will find this game not scary at all. So for best enjoyment do what I did.. play it in a stormy night with thunder and lighting outside my window. Shut all lights in the room except light a candle 1 feet in front of my 4 speakers. (so the sudden jump of sound will make the candle flicker.)

Most important play it alone, and try to focus on the puzzle instead of focus on the possible jump scare. Play it without the TAB key hint.

This may enhance your fear factor by a bit. Not quite sure if this game is worth the money but good image and sound do cost money and may not be suitable for small indie developer.

6/10.. a very basic jump scare game that may not be good for everyone. (people that don't want to scared or don't fear ghosts).

PS: hint.. if u have problem solving a puzzle.. then don't touch anything for a while then red hint will show up. Also, Some of the puzzle u don't need to click just moving mouse around and sound of the puzzle you need to drag something from point A to point B but you can only take certain route.

Creepypasta Attempt #1:

I got on Steam and saw this game on the first of April and bought it because I thought it was an April Fool’s joke.

Scratch that.

Creepypasta Attempt #2:

I got on Steam and saw this game on the first of April and bought it because I’m an idiot.

No, no, no.

Creepypasta Attempt #3:

I got on Steam and saw that I had been gifted a game. I didn’t recognize who sent it and the message along with it went as so:

“Dear Withering Soul,

You are lost in your pitiful life. Test your limits.”

I downloaded it with hesitant fingers clenching the mouse with building tension. The game started and I was thrust into a dark forest. I clicked a birdhouse, then a doll, then A SPOOKY .JPG CAME OUT! I was now by a crying woman. I clicked a swing set, then the woman, then A SPOOKY .JPG CAME OUT! Later I went to Hell for some reason and there were three hanging, farting dead people and A SPOOKY .JPG CAME OUT!

This was Real Horror Stories Ultimate Edition. I hated this game. I hated it. I hate, hate, hated it. I don’t hate it because it scared me, but simply because it bored me. The only thing scary is that the creator is getting money for this bull. You loosely swing between random places and have things pop out at you. What people forget is there is a difference between being horrified and being startled. This game startles you for brief seconds. Which can be okay, but I didn’t get startled at all. This game TRIES to startle you for brief seconds. The only problem is that you’ll be bored to tears between the “scares,” so you just don’t get scared. My shoulders jumped once and I think it was because a fly landed on my arm.

I can’t recommend this unless you saved up money from selling cards and you don’t feel like buying DLC. Don’t tell all your friends not to buy this because they’ll go out and do it anyway. Just ignore the game and forget about it. That is the worst thing you can do about terrible horror games: feel nothing and see them as irrelevant.

Basically a flash game you can pay £1.50 for. A series of illogical, almost static point 'n' click one-screen 'puzzles' with jump scares heaped in. Click a candle, then some shoes, then a jumpscare, then look at a picture, another jumpscare, then some laughter and a jumpscare. If it had some semblance of plot or didn't feel like a game I could easily play for free online then it might be worth it's pricetag. The ExMortis series is available on flash gaming sites, is longer, better made and much more interesting. And also scarier.

Don`t even bother, it`s just as bad as the price suggets. Stay away from this, unless you're into random cheap jumpscares and hate things like story or atmossphere.

This game is terrible, it's a free flash game that they are charging for. The puzzles are simplistic the jump scares are pathetic and the "horror" aspect really bored me or made me laugh.

A fun game for drinking parties, take a shot every time you feel like you just wasted 19 cents.
