    great music, great atmosphere, very good story. those are the pillars on which an adventure must rest - and the last door has it all.

    Especially in that case - i do have to question the developers choice of a pixel look though. While i do agree that the game works best with hand drawn sprites instead of some silly 3d or 2.5d, i do think they have gone too far here. A good example of a

    Especially in that case - i do have to question the developers choice of a pixel look though. While i do agree that the game works best with hand drawn sprites instead of some silly 3d or 2.5d, i do think they have gone too far here. A good example of a "good" pixel look is the Blackwell series. ( especially part 1&2 )
    In case of the last door, the presentation kind of ruins it for me. As far as i understand the intention is to have ones imagination work harder by not going too much into detail on the screen - but it could have done better at - at least VGA resolution. I never started to get a real connection to the protagonist - mainly because he was never much more than a stick figure to me.

    So i am quite sad that i have to dock points for the graphics - something i d want to avoid when graphics really should be secondary for a good story, but for me - it does ruin the storytelling more than it aids it.

    I am delighted with this old school point’n’click. Unmatched atmosphere, suggestive visuals, great audio – all this is worth much more than 10 euros they’re asking. [08/2014, p.55]

    The Last Door is a great retro atmospheric horror game that will make you want to keep opening up its mysteries until you reach the end.

    Simple but effective, The Last Door offers a great, chilling narrative experience. A little on the short side, episodes do not run longer than thirty minutes or so, but its levity is no reason to ignore this well written and conceived story of the supernatural.
