Secret Neighbor Review
TinyBuild has released a sequel to the horror game Hello Neighbor, previously created by Hologryph and Dynamic Pixels. The storyline of Secret Neighbor takes place after the events of Hello Neighbor, and the players' main objective continues to be the same: to once more break into the neighbor's basement. However, Secret Neighbor is now available for multiple players.
We already know the graphics of this game from the first part of Hello Neighbor. The sequel will offer like-a-cartoon graphics and a bright atmosphere, but is unlikely to impress experienced gamers. The graphics are not suitable for everyone, because it rather looks like a cartoon.
Six players in the role of six children need to get into a scary neighbors basement to free their friend. Of course, the neighbor will do his best to prevent them from doing this. Interestingly, now each character in this game has some extraordinary skill. The game location is traditionally a huge multistory building with a lot of inconspicuous rooms, various hiding places and locked doors. Here, actually, every location has plenty of details that you need to pay attention to for finding the correct key. The game's primary feature is the presence of a traitorous member within the group. Before starting the game, one of the players gets a special role to be a neighbor. He can disguise himself as a child at any time and try to prevent children from getting into a basement.
In this iteration of the game, gameplay control is meant to be distributed among six players. However, due to technical glitches, the controls may become unresponsive, and occasionally the network code fails to recognize all six players. There are instances where these bugs prevent a player from joining the game, causing delays for others as they either wait for the issue to be resolved or initiate a new search for players.
Replay Value 4/5
In the game, you can have a good time playing with the company, but the rounds in this game are short, 15 minutes each, and the game can be ended quickly. But the ability to play the main villain and invent various tricks for players to thwart their mission makes this game more dynamic and interesting enough to play it again.
If You Like
When you like to play in the company inventing new tactics, including the role of the villain; look for non-standard solutions and solve secrets; 15 minutes rounds; cute cartoon graphics in horror.
Multiplayer and the ability to play the main villain are the main attractions of the game. Inventing new traps for players can be a lot of fun for a company, but for someone, rounds of 15 minutes may seem short. Elements of horror in cartoon graphics look interesting.
Pros : Engaging Gameplay;
Highly Interactive Environment;
Cons : Unforgiving Difficulty;
Lack of Clear Instructions;
