About This Game

Through the eyes of Grobuskna Vladinov, you'll be taken through a ride that has stained itself to Grobuskna's memory.
Losing his parents during the holocaust left Grobuskna with many questions, he couldn't accept to let the villain be forgotten.
Having a father that worked close with the resistance during world war two was a big risk in itself.
But as Grobuskna once said, to let good die and bad live is something no man can accept.

Grobuskna is a detective, as a side thing he's been trying to keep track of remaining Nazi officers spread around the world.
Despite the fact that he knows who took his parents, he still doesn't know where he's hiding.
Until an unknown call reaches Grobuskna's office, an unknown call but an expected call that'll change everything...

I was recommended to play this by Steam and as it was a Horror and Free to Play I decided to check it out. As it was Free to Play, I went into it with the mindset that it may not be too good. Therefore, I am going to explain what I thought of it below and if it is worth playing in my opinion.

Gameplay:

Pros:

♦ Playable
♦ Realistic Running Energy (Can only run for x amount of time before having to regenerate)
♦ Good number of weapons to find and use (This keeps the game interesting)
♦ Decent length for what the game is (Can take a long time if you keep dying due to the poor enemy spawn locations, the difficultness to kill them and the limited save locations)
Cons:

♦ The story was very hard to follow and unclear
♦ The notes seemed to be randomly placed and make no sense as to why they are placed where they are
♦ Walking on some areas, objects and items causes you to lose gravity and get stuck to the roof making your character move really slow (Jumping a lot fixes this, but is annoying in the first place)
♦ Jump Scares were non-existent (There were some but really “Changing Screen Colour and shaking it randomly isn’t scary)
♦ The “TNT” was glitched (You had to collect 3 pieces located in the dungeon, however if you loaded a save, went through a door where it loaded and you came back, you could pick up the first piece again and it would say you had 2/3 pieces. This was in fact not the case as you only still had 1 piece as you hadn’t found and collected the other pieces located in the dungeon)
♦ Enemies randomly spawn in the most annoying places (They randomly spawn to try and scare you, which is good… Although, they spawn in places you can’t really escape from easily. This is annoying as it takes a high amount of ammo to kill one enemy and if two or more have spawned near you, it’s really hard to survive. Along with this, if an enemy hits you, your screen shakes making it almost impossible to get an accurate hit on them and it takes them a lot less hits to kill you than it does you to kill them)
♦ Enemies easily kill you where it takes you a long time to kill them
♦ If an enemy has attacked you, sometimes (Not sure if everytime), you’ll start to bleed (This is bad as you’ve probably used your health kit in the fight already and then just walk around bleeding and most likely will die)
♦ Saves are few and far between (Due to the hardness of actually killing an enemy and the easiness of them killing you, this is terrible. You’ll spend a long time walking round finding things and doing the puzzles only to die and end half an hour back and have to redo everything only to hope not to die again)
♦ Only allowed one health kit at a time (This is annoying as if you have been saving up health and see another kit, you can’t make use of it)
♦ Repetitive (I mentioned decent length, but due to dying a lot and few save locations, you will have to repeat yourself over and over again)
♦ At times it’s hard to know what to do (But it’s pretty easy to figure out if you just search around and use your inventory items, but there should be more story as to what you’re doing and why you’re doing it, some things just don’t make sense)
♦ 0% Scariness (No real jump scares or horror scenes)

Graphics:
Pros:

♦ Horror like
♦ Graphics seem high quality for a F2P game
♦ Decent menu graphics settings

Cons:

♦ When the Screen Changes colour and shakes to try and scare you (It just looks as though they inverted some colours and is really dodgy)
♦ Lighting can be fairly dark even with the light sources given such as the torch
♦ Menu and in-game notes text can be hard to read (This is due to the font style chosen to try and make it look scary. Though it’s more annoying than scary as the notes have to be read to even begin to try and understand the storyline)
Sound:
Pros:

♦ Has volume sliders and speaker setting options (This is excellent to control the volume and how you want to hear it)
♦ Sounds seem fitting for a horror
Cons:

♦ By default the music is louder than the voice acting in cinematics and when the character reads notes (This makes you miss key parts of the story which cannot be replayed)
♦ Voice acting seems limited when it comes to reading found notes (This is weird as only some chosen notes are read aloud whereas others you have to read yourself)
Achievements:

Pros:

♦ Decent amount that are gotten throughout the game (Not all at one point or by grinding certain things)
♦ 11 out of 13 are easy to get (Most are gotten by just playing and exploring the game, not grinding things like in other games)
♦Achievement for collecting statues without dying, loading or saving (This is only for the pro gamers and can be very difficult, however it gives the game an edge to it for those who found it good enough to replay it)
♦ When completed achievements get a tick on them (That’s a nifty addition in my opinion)

Cons:

♦ There is an achievement for picking up a weapon (However, to get this you have to have donated or finished the game. This makes no sense as the weapon should only appear if the game has been finished or if you have donated, not on the first play through)
♦ There is an achievement related to “Finding Slender” (This is terrible as the game has nothing to do with Slenderman)
♦ Random achievement for collecting statues (No idea why we are collecting statues of a random person)

Price:

Pros

♦ Free with no micro-transactions

Cons:

♦ Can’t expect much due to being free
♦ Tries to get you to donate for an achievement (Shouldn’t be asking for donations, if people want to donate they will)

Other:

Pros:

♦ Keyboard controls just work and are easily mapped (Despite F being interact/use by default when most other games use E)

Cons:
♦ The random Screen Shake and Colour Change seems to be a Slenderman rip-off but nothing appears
♦ Some Loading Screen tips seem to be worded incorrectly (Said to “Spend your ammunition wisely” when it should have says Use as ammunition isn’t a currency)
♦ At one point you see a Slenderman like figure in a window (This is weird as this game has nothing to do with Slenderman)
♦ Uses the Swastika on the save/load menu screen randomly as though it’s a cool thing to include
♦ No restore to default when changing keyboard controls (This is annoying if you want to change them back)


Overall, the game is free to play and runs well. However, I wouldn’t really recommended this unless you are playing games for a sense of achievement and beating all the games on Steam as there is no actual scariness or things that make a horror good in this game and the storyline makes absolutely minimal sense. Though, I have finished this and for a free game I’d recommend you install it (If you have a spare 7gb) to try it out and determine if you like it for yourself. However, with that said, I personally think the cons out way the pros and wouldn’t play this again myself as it is annoying with few save slots, how easy it is for the enemies to kill you and how hard it is for you to kill them, the poor spawn locations for the enemies, the glitchy stuck to the roof thing, the poor horror events and the extremely hard to follow storyline just doesn’t make me want to play this or recommend it to anyone.

It's great how there's no reticle in this game, but precise shots are mandatory to stop enemies, and - hell - pick up items. Your guns have zero stopping power, headshots are the only reliable way to put enemies down, and even then they won't stop charging you until you've finally killed them. The amount of damage they deal is all over the place too. Sometimes they hurt you for very little, sometimes they whack off a massive chunk of HP.

This might also be the most unoriginal horror game I've ever seen, which is saying a lot. It's like the developers played Resident Evil, thought they could emulate that, and then dumped zombies and nazi's in because hey people sure do love that, right?

There should be a law preventing these clowns from developing a game ever again. And yes, clowns, plural, because apparently more than one person had a hand in this and I find that fact absolutely staggering. How does one person think this is fit for mass consumption let alone several? I cannot explain why else it's free other than the devs having a startling moment of clarity and realizing they couldn't ethically charge real money for this garbage.

Play this game if you hate yourself or if you need confirmation that video games are a dead medium.

I couldn't realy make a written review or anything on this game. SO, I made a video instead, and no I didn't make this for "youtube fodder" reasons or whatever, I made it because I HATE this game: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Xcuw_K6qWrs

Also I don't know why the thumbnail is of Cry of Fear, because that is not how it is on my channel, either way, go play Cry of Fear instead, THAT is a scary game.
