I got scared not by all the jumpscares, but by the ultra-low game design and animation. DISGUSTING

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!

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.

Gameplay is very basic.Saying horror game is hard there is just jumpscares and amateur effects.Nevermind it is cheap so you can sell cards or make badge.

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

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.
