Alright. I think it's time to make a fair review on this game. I received Kidnapped for free in an indie games website and I'm glad of it because otherwise I would ask for a refund. I mean... A GAME WITH ACHIEVEMENTS YOU CAN'T UNLOCK?!?!?

Here's some things I evluated when I played:

PROS:

◉ The first chapter is great. I think is the best chapter in the game. It keeps you in suspense, is scary and interesting with a mysterious ambiance.

◉ It has a good story (before the second chapter) if you read the hidden notes.

◉ I really liked the fact you can perform a satanic ritual!

CONS:

◉ You can't unlock any achievement because they're bugged. The only way to get achievements is hacking them.

◉ Sometimes the circuit pin inside the globe would be bugged in the first chapter, making the game impossible to complete it.

◉ Sometimes it would be boring when you must find the circuit pins around the entire house.

◉ You can get items in the game like binoculars you don't find any use.

◉ Poorly made story after the second chapter. It don't have any sense of having a gun to shot animals in the forst to perform a sacrifice you don't know why. And then, to proceed in the game, you must drop your gun and bullets. I mean, WHY WOULD YOU DO THAT?!? BECAUSE A NOTE TOLD YOU "Drop your gun and the door will open"??? NO WAY!!!

◉ Really bad controls. After the second chapter, when you got the gun, you can't open doors without firing accidentally because firing and opening doors are the SAME click!



I liked the game even if the game don't had any sense. But the WORST is the achievements bug. That's why I rate it as negative.

FINAL RATE: 5/10

It's a bunch of cobbled together Unity assets, several of which are hilariously out of place (giant bears, lock picking and safe cracking, fighting polygon team statues, etc.) with hauntedhouse.wav playing in the background. Some parts of the game like inventory management barely function as you'll have twelve slots taken up by groups of four bullets instead of one slot of forty-eight and the game ultimately is one long hunt for keys to open doors to lead to more keys to open more doors, broken up into chapters to try and make it less apparent.

The scariest thing to happen in this game was when my character got launched into the sky due to a common collision detection error with Unity games. Well, poorly made Unity games that is.

Quick review:

Positives:
+atmosphere

Negatives:
-everything else

---

First of all, the game runs pretty horribly.
My PC isn't _that_ bad and sometimes the game would just lag horribly when I ran into objects for example.
The atmosphere at least was pretty good and the couple of jump scares got me that I managed to see... Before the game crashed at the end of Chapter 1.
Everything was feeling pretty tedious already and I wasn't really that immersed in the game, because it felt so clunky so that was enough for me.
I didn't hear enough of the narration to have much of an opinion, but let's say I've heard a lot worse.

Maybe if the game ran better, your character could actually run (run key makes you go like 10% faster compared to your sloooooooooow normal speed) and the crashing issue was fixed this could've been something.
But as it is, it's not even worth 3€ as I got bored after like 30mins of playing (until the game crashed), which felt like 1,5 hours.

Luckily I didn't pay a penny for this, as I got the key for free from a giveaway.
