At First this game seemed really intersting, and had me hooked until the 3rd or 4th boss fight, because after it went down hill for me.
Every fight you have after that first one is repetitive, and only requires the same strategy for each fight. Move backwards in circles while attempting to avoid being hit.

Some of the fights even get cheap with enemies that instantly jump almost close enough to hit you if you are not already moving, basically stop moving at any point during the fights and you die.

Not to mention that you can't tell if there is anything behind you either so there is that, all the while you have to reach over and hit the reload key after every shot.
To be fair I didn't make it to the last level because after my failed attempts on the Level VII I was done, so I have not experienced the last level nor do I plan to.

Lastly about the combat the one really annoying thing about it, is the fact that when you die instead of placing you right in front of the area to start the fight, they make you go all the way back to the beginning, so you have to run all the way back to the area where the boss is and then sometimes you have to trigger the event again (make a bonfire) etc.

As far as the horror aspect, you get jumpscares, and not just any jump scares the annoying eardrum busting loud ones, which got old pretty quick that is about it for horror that I have noticed anyways. There is no real skill required to get through the exploration areas, no complex puzzles, or anything of the like. Just explore everything and eventually you will stumble on to the key to the next area.

The Graphics are nice though, was not paying attention to the music so I can't say anything about that.

In my conclusion this game is ok as it's only $0.99, if you are not put off by the earbusting jump scare moments and you are more patient than I am with it then by all means get it, and try it. I can't really complain however since I obtained this game for free anyways.

Since it has mixed reviews that means that at least some people enjoy it so you may like or you may not.
I don't usually review games but I am trying to anyways so I apologize if my review was not helpful at all.

Wow this was quite an experience and a scary one indeed,indie developers usually screw-up when it comes to horror , making areas look scary and feel scary are two completely different things, and to get horror right even with the inclusion of a weapon ? Bravo, this game does that quite well, so get it . Although don’t expect more than 2hours of gameplay from it but it’s a really cheap game and you can get a copy for free from multiple sites, so give it a try , it sure was fun for me :) 3/5!

Okay so it starts out meh with an okay jump scare. Then it becomes beyond trippy with poison, Giant snakes and a werewolf. Literrally just a story about a "Hunter" (just some dude with a lantern and a gun) who probably took too much cocain one day which lead up to this. But the on screen prompts are annoying and the general stuff it tells you is annoying too (like "this creature can't be killed but it can be slowed down") which decreases play value massively. I'd rather find out the creature is unstoppable than to have to be told it instead...

I will list areas of the gameply on a scale of 1 to 10 (10 being perfect and 1 being the complete opposite of that). These are:
Jump scares. Are they good? - No. Are they unique from other games? - Partially (werewolfs and Sh*t) Rating - 3/10

Gameplay length: How many chapters? - 9 chapters I think. How long per chapter? - I've played 3 chapters so 10 mins a chapter. Overall is the gameplay time accetable? - No. Rating - 2/10

Price compared to the gameplay quality: For bad graphics (even on ultra), Bad written dialogue and bad level designs, I'd say the 79pence asked for (at this currrent time) is about right. However, comparing the price to what you get from the game though compared to things like spending the 79pence on steam cards to make a badge and get some cool emojis from it (:nahkitty: :sniperskull:) etc etc and some decent backgrounds, the price for the game seems rather unreasonable for the game. But i'm not writing this with the intention to be biast about aspects of the game because other unrelated things so overall, I'd give the price to game quality an 8/10.

And finally, for you graphic obsessed people out there, the last point is:
Graphics. Are they 'Great' (compared to high end graphics on other games) - No. Are they ones you'd expect for the price? - No. Even though the price is cheap, I didnt expect this level of graphics for the game. I expected PS2 era graphics and the ones given are a fairly nicer bit more than that.

But hey, for the price, this little game aint all that bad.... I mean there ARE some pros to this aswell as all the cons you've picked up on so far. There arent many pros to this game but here are some I can list from my current 0.5 hours on the game:
.It's challenging
.It is fairly unique compared to all the other games i've played before
.It has a fairly okay standard of gore in the game and admittedly, the chopped in half horses did make me that little bit more tense for the upcoming jumpscares. This gore level is also pretty funny at times because who doesnt love seeing a man crushed by a bench which is stood up at an impossible angle?
And finally, I must go back to the price for this game. 79pence is a bargain for a small little hour or so gametime game regardless of its graphics and bad dialogue (misspellings etc).

So overall, I'd say the game is worth getting and if you've read this far then I'm pretty sure you can deal with something else thats not as boring as reading what I have to say :)

Thank you for reading and I hope this review helps.

Whether it's amateurish or not doesn't matter when it comes to having a good time with games but not with this one, for me at least. I can't even burn the body parts or chairs and the story is so normal that I couldn't laugh about it. No just no

I expected a bit of cheap cheesy fun with lame scares to laugh at, but the game was far too slow, full of aimless wandering and the "scares" were, from what I played, either planks of wood falling or too quick to really notice, with one decent exception. I played the first 2 chapters before I got burnt out.

RIP Headphone users.

- One hour long campaign.
- Terrible models.
- Terrible animations.
- Glitches everywhere.
- Pretty much no plot.
- One jump scare every 5 minutes.
- The screen is blurred during 40% of the game.
+ I got it for free.
+ The last boss battle is so loud and has so many screen effects that it looks like one of those MLG montages.
- I hate those montages.

People say this game sucks...and they are right, more-less.
Visuals are average and too much blurry (even for a horror game), gameplay is lousy, music is so-so (ain't bad, but it ain't appropriate for this game) and story is extremely lame and boring. The game is too short. But, it can be depressive and scary sometimes.

But, unlike some other indie FPS games that were made in some "make-your-own-fps-in-5-minutes-or-less-game-creator", I get the feeling that these two guys that made this game (if I am correct) actually tried their best. And for that, I give them thumbs up.

Plus, it's a cheap game.
