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...

Honestly, I saw someone write a 'review' and they didn't explain anything, just said it was awful, but 'good for a free game.' Hearing this simply made me curious. Why did he say that everything was awful but good for a free game? So, I decided to play and actually take notes. Well, I played about an hour of it, and then I quit. Here's a list of the problems I found with the game.
1): Missing textures. If I'm downloading your game, please provide all the textures. It really removes from the atmosphere when I have missing texture here and there.
2): Controls. They're not bad, but I was stuck in the beginning because ‘F’ was the Use key, instead of the traditional ‘E’ key. I know that’s not really a problem, but an explanation would have been nice. Sure, it did tell you, after you left the room, which requires you to figure it out first. Little late, thanks. While we’re on controls, the car was absolutely terrible. I flipped the car on accident, and the brake is so horribly done. Could use for some fixing. Plus, there’s no need to go /that/ fast in this game.
3): Achievements: I got the Slenderman Achievement, and I don’t even know how. This could just be me, but I looked at a gramophone and hit F, and got it. Did I miss Slenderman, or what?
4): Stephano was in it. Clearly this is directed at PewDiePie, but I saw a ‘collected 1/3’ pop up, and even though I’m not a fan, I’m also not against him in any way, but I don’t want to have PewDiePie literally shoved into my face when I’m playing a game. Maybe have it in game, but don’t make it a side mission or anything.
5): Invisible boarders. You had a perfectly fine set up with the entire area surrounded in a log fence, but people can get over those and walk into an invisible wall, which is terrible. Simple put the invisible wall where the log fences are, and then I wouldn’t have gotten my car stuck on the fence.
6): Animations could use some work. Swimming animation looks really awkward, there’s no animation when you’re driving outside of the tires moving. I.E. Character doesn’t turn the steering wheel, or react at all.
7): There were several areas where lights were being emitted with no source.
8): More than half of the notes didn’t have voice acting while some did. This is just odd, either do voice acting for all of them, or none.
9): Monsters did not feel threatening at all. They shook around when they ran towards you or stood still like they were from Cry of Fear or something. This was far more annoying than threatening or scary. Speaking of monsters, confronting them was ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥. If two of them got close enough to you, you’re more than likely dead. This doesn’t make them threatening, this makes them annoying.
10): There were grammar issues, but I don’t really care that much.
11): The Bolt cutters worked weird. Cut the chain, and the basement doors broke… What?
12): When loading for the next stage there’s a chance of running into a bug. You’re ported to the other side of the door, and once in a while the game just sticks you there, and forgets to load, leaving you stuck.
13): So many unnecessary transitions between rooms. The maps not loading anything new, it’s just porting me to the other side of the door. Opening the door would have been easier.
14): Unrealistic use for TNT. You DO NOT use TNT just to open a freaking door made of four to five planks of ♥♥♥♥ wood! I had a sledge hammer that could have easily broken the door, and yet I wasted TNT to blow it up. Why?! I could have saved that and used it for something more constructive, creative, or useful! Absolutely terrible, not to mention, I wrote nearly half of that before the TNT exploded. It took forever to go off.
15): There were way too many loading screens. I felt like I was waiting more than I was playing.
16): Why was there multiple choice answers/questions? From what I saw nothing was changing up, and it kept going back until I clicked all of them. A cut scene, sure that works, but having me click the questions/answers until all were done was pointless and time wasting.
I’m sure there’s a lot more, but honestly, there was just so much terrible crap going on that I just couldn’t keep playing, wasn’t worth the hardware space. Not worth it, not even if it’s free.

Update: Having now completed the game. I have added a few more bullet points (in italics). Mild spoilers.

  • I have no idea what's happening storywise.
  • The enemies look ridiculous and are hard to beat unless you can pre-empt them.
  • Your character's name changes subtly with every person who tries to pronounce it.
  • There is a strong possibility you'll drop a lung laughing at the jump scares.
  • It tries to imitate Slenderman by using what I can only assume is a Source version of ET, and even then they fail to have it chase you.
  • And I'm pretty sure I missed an item I need in an area I'm now locked out of.
  • I got killed by an exploding chest with a russian man dancing on it while "who let the dogs out" played until I quit.
  • Puzzles include tilting a Hitler painting to move a bookcase, but only AFTER some enemies have appeared, and articulation of this idea is totally non-existent.
  • One puzzle requires a circular saw. There is a circular saw in the room, but you can't use it for whatever reason. You need one from somewhere else.
  • You will lose contact with the floor and get stuck in jump animation loops when walking over objects like "newspaper" and "stairs"
  • One of the bosses appear twice because... I'm not sure.
  • The rest of the bosses are poorly explained, or just dumb.
  • Some enemies are spawned next to doors. These enemies will absorb 15 rounds from the MP-40, but down you with 3-4 knife hits.
  • You will never, ever, pick up the ammo in front of you first. You will magnetically attract buckets and chairs first, and once they're gone you'll still be at the wrong angle/distance to obtain the ammo.
  • The story is no clearer by the end than the begininning. Not sure if it's there at all, actually.
  • Final boss sucks. Not sure you can even call it a boss.
  • You can't enter the final area until you do some convoluted ♥♥♥♥ to turn the lights on because "it's dark down there". I was holding a torch. And it turns out some people were fighting off waves of enemies for a long time down there. Apparently in the dark.

There you have it. Still recommending it (for comedy purposes): 10/10
However, as an actual game: 3/10

This game was for me an experience. The story is somewhere in the middle of the 40's, during ww2. I expected something like zombies or ghosts, but there were just some ugly freaks and bloody psyckopaths with knives and hammers. Weird game, but good graphic for being a free game on steam. I've come to the middle of it now and don't know what to do. It's hard to know what you are supposed to do in the game. So one thing that is bad about this is the story. I don't understand the story of the game so much actually. I mean you are a guy, who is looking for something, and there are these freaks and probably aliens around you. (cause one of the enemies looks like a sort of alien) So if you want to try out this strange, but sometimes interesting game, be prepared for places there you can get stuck and have to figure it out how to do.

points 4/10

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.

By far the WORST horror game I've ever touched. Terrible level design, uncomfy camera movement when just WALKING, gross graphics, and VA so bad I couldn't get out of the beginning area due to not being able to understand a single word he said, the sound of some guy breathing heavily into my ears is completely undesirable, and back on the camera moving, it just shakes around when moving, move left? It'll shake that way, move right? It's like looking at a washing machine. Especially given that it would require rapid movement. The UI is just gross and the sound quality sounds like a YouTube video from 2006. Final verdict? -10/10. Major warning for people who can get motion sickness.

If you like bad grammar, cheap jumpscares, horrible text flaws, and ripoffs of other successful horror games (like Cry of Fear and Amnesia: the Dark Descent, literally they ripped a sound effect from Amnesia), then get this game today!
Oh, and don't think I'll let you slip by with ripping off Fallout: 3, game! But really, this game has a ton of problems. However, it is free. That being said, it's worth the money. Plus, I actually am having some fun shooting up those Cry of Fear zombies! On the other hand, the game is quite linear, which leads to some very... enraging combat moments, like that time I was stuck in a shed with two monsters that have the speed of Sonic the Hedghog with a chili dog up his butt and as little room as shoebox on roids. yet this game has thought of stooping to lower levels as to steal MORE things from other games like: the Notes and Items menu taken from Amnesia: the Dark Descent, and the communication feature taken from Fallout: 3. While I can see that they were trying there best to please people by adding these mechanics, I still think that aspect lacked a little creativity. Overall, this being a free mod, I can see that they had their limits, and I respect the ambition of the team that put this together. It's just hard for someone who's played fantastic horror games in the past to overlook these flaws, yet I do realize that this isn't a "Triple-a" title, and I think they did a pretty good job at pleasing many people, therefore, all being said, I give this a 6/10.
