    Secret Neighbor has great core idea for a co-op horror game but it totally misses the mark. [Issue#186, p.87]

    • 40 Critic Score
    Caretaker certainly has potential, and it’s clear that the developer understands the horror genre. But there’s a lot missing here. With unsatisfactory investigation and a frustratingly generic villain at its core, Caretaker raises more questions than it answers. [Issue#186, p.88]

    A promising start gives way to an underbaked story and clunky survival mechanics.[Issue#225, p.87]

    Laborious and horribly put together, Agony really will put you through hell. [Aug 2018, p.78]

    The thrill of a 400-foot homer can't make up for many faults. Swing and a miss. [June 2018, p.80]

    Stealth fans, heed our warning: Serial Cleaner might promise a hardcore genre fix, but behind the '70s veneer lies a game that takes pleasure in leaving you fuming. And unlike actual cleaning, it awards you with none of the satisfaction of a job well done.

    • 56 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    Turgid storytelling, poorly explained mechanics and abysmally unoptimised code. [Sept 2017, p.86]

    • 30 Critic Score
