Hello Neighbor: Discover His Secrets
Hello Neighbor is a horror game about those who live in the house next to yours. You will have to survive during a game and complete achievements to win. The key purpose is to get into a neighbor's house to disclose his secret. Be ready for severe competition with artificial intelligence. I can prove that the interaction will be a real challenge!
I can say that design is nice but I find the graphics not really amazing. Still, the game runs well. I had no problems with lugs. Its appearance is full of a lot of details. And you know what? I have noticed that this title includes a lot of elements from some indie game. If you have ever played Bendy and the Ink Machine, you will definitely find a lot of similar moments here. There is a black and yellow background. You will hear tracks sounding in that game. Moreover, I met Bendy several times. It is not good or bad. After all, it does not mean that everybody knows the origin as I do.
You will navigate a boy, hearing the noise at the neighbour’s house. He saw a man living in that house who behaved in a strange way and decided to figure out what was happening there. The man’s name is Mr Peterson and he definitely keeps the secrets. He fortifies his house and tries to do everything not to allow someone to enter his house. This character is able to understand your actions thanks to AI programming. If you visit that house, the security camera will monitor, and Mr Peterson will arrange to bear traps for you in case you come next time. He will chase you. There are horror elements delivering shocks. Also, you will be suggested to solve puzzles which are rather complicated and useless.
You should complete the challenges and overcome the obstacles. Though, you are not equipped with special means to stand against your neighbor. And you can hardly be efficient with ability to carry only four objects at a time and other restrictions. There are several modes but even the simplest one, Friendly, is very difficult. But in Normal Mode, the AI is keen in particular. It learns from your mistakes and foresees your reactions. Your opponent does everything to get you.
The game itself is full of challenges. You should carry items from that house without letting them down. You will jump and throw those objects, do some other moves demanding accurate skills. So, even if the controls themselves are not very complicated, it will take you some time to master them. For instance, there is only a slight difference in your efforts to open, close doors and to look through a keyhole. You will fail to perform the task if you touch the screen standing not in the meant place. I think that setting down and jumping items could be better as well. I got tired to learn jump exactly as I want.
The game is free but you are offered quite a lot of in-app purchases which will extend your possibilities and enhance the playing experience. Be careful and avoid excess charges.
As to my recommendations, I would not say this is the best game ever. In general, there are controversial reviews about it. Some critics say that the gameplay and control scheme could be better, but the others admire the story aspects and design. In order to decide what is your opinion, you should try it.
