    I’m awful at playing horror games, and I’m always too scared to make any real progress. Yomawari creates a great atmosphere of tension and terror that rarely relies on cheap scares, and it was the perfect formula to keep me hooked until the end. If you’re looking for a good alternate horror game, look no further.

    Don't let the cuteness fool you, Yomawari: Night Alone is a creepy horror game which will make you jump! The game preys on all the fears you had as a child, with ghosts standing under flickering streetlamps and arms grabbing at you through manhole covers. It's not particularly long but I'd still recommend people give it a go for the unique atmosphere and interesting story.

    Yomawari Night Alone can be seen as a simple game experience but inside its gameplay it has a quite interesting survival horror game from the point of view of a girl in search of her big sister and dog. With a simple but also great setting, not just in graphics but also in sound, this game makes for a quite remarkable experience from the beginning to the end.

    Yomawari: Night Out is the definition of survival horror, trapped with nothing to defend yourself with against horrors that await around every corner. Yomawari may be light on jump scares but the creatures, sound design, and atmosphere is enough to creep anyone out.

    Billed as a horror game, Yomawari: Night Alone ultimately feels like it falls more on the side of tragedy. Sure, it has its jump scares which can get the blood racing, but the town and its supernatural inhabitants just feel a little too charming to be considered a real threat.

    Yomawari: Night Alone is a "cute survival horror" with a classic structure, a little bit of backtracking and a helpless character that must overcome her fears. Despite the unique design, it has some frustrating moments and a weak plot.

    I would still recommend Yomawari: Night Alone to any horror fans simply on the basis of it being unique, but if that’s not what you’re looking for and nothing short of a terror-inducing masterpiece will do, I’m afraid it’s back to Silent Hill 2. Until we do get that next genre-defining horror gem, Yomawari is a nice distraction that will hopefully be worked on to bring us something even more sinister and satisfying in the future.

The story is intriguing with the premise being something kind of fresh. The graphics are a marvelous combination of handdrawn and computer, while the gameplay is a little slow, I would say it is well worth the bundle pack Expand

    This is a really well done portable survival horror, i couldn't explain the experience, but is a really great game, with several problemsThis is a really well done portable survival horror, i couldn't explain the experience, but is a really great game, with several problems because of the way it was done, the main one being that it has almost no replay value, there are a lot of collectibles but just for the love of collectibles, so if you find it cheap, you should buy it, if not, be prepared to make everyone in your family play it to get your money worth.

Some may find the unrelenting trial and error frustrating, but I found the whole experience so immersive that the difficulty added to the tension. Death is around every corner and I loved tip-toeing around. Every new enemy instills a sense of fear that leaves you second guessing your next move. The final few chapters sort of paled in comparison to the rest of the game in terms of scares, but at that rate it's the haunting narrative carries the experience to a satisfactory (yet unsettling) conclusion.
