Round Robin

This game is definitely worth the small handful of Loonies it costs. The story is fun to follow along and kept me engaged. Nothing groundbreaking—just a solid horror romp. The puzzles are not so hard that frustration gets in the way, but are still challenging enough to to be worth the effort. The character designs and overall aesthetic fit perfectly with the story. If I have any complaints, dodging the creature gets a bit tedious, but it’s a minor gripe and eventually you’ll learn strategies that work (Holly’s face when she gets caught is pretty great, though!). The app is cheap, so just buy it and enjoy a few fun evenings with headphones on in the dark. If it ain’t your jam, you’ve only lost the price of a cup of coffee. Me? I wore a stupid grin from the opening scene to the final (great) epilogue. Thanks!

It’s hard to come across actual horror titles on mobile so I’m happy to find them when I can. Overall this is pretty good for what it is. Controls and gameplay are very well done and had some effort put into them. I do wish the monster encounters weren’t so repetitive and simple but it could be far worse. Happy I gave this a try. Hope more people come across it as it deserves far more ratings.

I downloaded this game on a whim since pixel art and horror stories are both my jam. In regards to visuals, I was not disappointed. The lighting and environment are beautiful and wonderfully detailed despite the pixelated style. The “closer examination” artwork is also nicely stylized without detracting from the ominous atmosphere. My only issue, which is a rather large one for me, was with the story itself. Obviously I don’t want to spoil anything, but there were aspects about the plot that just didn’t seem to make sense in the light of the final conclusion, and overall it felt pretty lackluster and uninspired. There was nothing shocking or surprising and by the end of it I felt like I had had so many clues as to the conclusion that I was just ready for it to be over. Overall, this wasn’t a bad game, but at the end of it I wasn’t exactly happy for having spent money on it either.

Eight interesting chapters of story, puzzles, and evading death. A bit of gore and a lot of mystery. Fun little jumpscares too. What I loved: -The graphics. They aren’t pixelated out of laziness; there’s a ton of detail in every location. -The use of stereo sound. Makes the monster(s) sneaking up on you much creepier, plus great ambient noise (use headphones)! -The dialogue. I actually cared about the main characters. What could have been better: -The ending (*no spoilers*)...there are more than a few loose ends. Certain plot points seem to be there just to add more horror gameplay without ever being explained. Regardless, I gave the game 5 stars because it’s clear a TON of effort was put into this. Wish there was a sequel!

It’s an engaging game, but the story is weak. The timeline doesn’t make sense, the characters are flat, the puzzles don’t make sense, and the story leaves so much untold. What exactly are the ghouls roaming about? How does a doctor know the exact weight of his own heart in ounces? Is it two years, or ten years after graduation? She’s a closeted lesbian the whole time? Really?! That surprise falls very flat given the lack of narrative structure. I played it through, because the ambience is interesting, and I suppose I thought it would improve. However, it was ultimately very disappointing.
