Secret Neighbor review
Secret Neighbor is a social horror game, the multiplayer version of Hello Neighbor, where six friends try to help their friend out of a mysterious basement while competing with a sly disguised neighbor always ready to cripple their plans. TinyBuild Games released the game in December 2018. Secret Neighbor is available on Xbox One and Microsoft Windows.
Unlock the Mysterious Basement
7 players, friends, are tucked in one house. The task is plain: unlock the mysterious basement to rescue a friend of yours. To that end, you need to collect keys hidden in different spots. But here’s the catch: one of the players is a traitor, the angry neighbor in disguise, who will pretend to be your friend and try to confuse you to clinch the victory.
The neighbor has two classes, each with different abilities. The scary neighbor is a merciless maniac who can set traps to damage other players, activate rage or disguise as the nearest player. The clown neighbor is trickier. The character can blur vision or conceal himself as a random object.
For other players, there are six classes available: leader, brave, detective, bagger, inventor, scout. Each class possesses certain abilities that are of great help to stop the villain.
It is even ridiculous to think of that. Can a horror game be appropriate for children? Apparently, it can now, and that is magnificent! The graphics is a mix of creepy, suspenseful atmosphere, amusing characters, and cartoonish surroundings. A quirky action game, so to speak. Both kids and adults will be excited.
The game controls might seem a bit tough for a beginner. Given that characters have special skills, you will have to use additional key bindings to apply them. Adjust them however you prefer in settings.
When certain characters, especially the Scout, happen to be the neighbor there is no balance to speak of. This problem must be fixed. Case-sensitive searching in the lobby only adds to it. It is inconvenient and a bit old-fashioned, in our opinion.
- Lively gameplay;
- Plethora of active and passive abilities;
- Rush of adrenaline;
- Improvement of problem-solving.
