Good game. Its creative and simple for those others who played it before. Like me.
5/5. This game, with it's brother and sister, scare the shit outta me every time, and I've played them through 3-4 times each.
Good game. It succeeds at creating suspense and mysterious atmosphere, and keeps the tone through the entire play through. I have to say though, that few scary moments was predictable and somewhat ungrounded - sort of the stereotypical scary things and situations, little childish even. Also, given the story premise - you are asleep and this is your nightmare - this stylistic approach could be very well justified. Puzzles are evenly challenging, also pixel hunting might be the problem sometimes (for example, I had problem with finding the switch for the oven and then - with finding proper lever for it). The flashlight mechanic is well done, adding a new dimension to the experience of vulnerability. In my opinion, It might have been used for more environment-oriented puzzles.
Overall the game effectively utilizes traditional point-and-click adventure aesthetic conventions to create fun and scary interactive experience. I can't wait to play sequels and see how initial ideas were developed there!
I played the second and third game already, so it is obvios that i already know what happens in this game, but my heart is like a drum. It doesnt matter how i see this game or how often i play everytime it is still one of the greatest games ive ever seen - it is also the reason why i came to newgrounds.
If there could be anything better than the fact that this game series didnt had a fourth part.
Its just my opinion.
