Fantastic review, Joe. I'm curious, are there any puzzles in this game? Seems like there would be, similar to most other "horror" games. Makes you wonder how they nailed the early scene, only to bumble through the atmosphere of the rest.

Thanks Miyamoto!

There are some puzzles, but almost all of them involving finding an item to place in a conspicuous slot. Some of the items are pretty obvious, too, though there were some that required a little extra scouring and exploration. You either find them in the course of the campaign or spot them via cliche twinkle. The only one that I recall differing was one that involved going through a mirror into a "reflected" world. IIRC, tinkering with something there altered the real world.

That's pretty much what I assumed. I'd like to play the original some time and see how it fares. The de-evolution of the scissors man, by the way, is sad. Haha.

If you made that Scissorman comparison picture, you rock. If you stole it, you rock a little bit less.

I missed this in your horror game review glut, which is a shame because this game has been on my "get around to" list forever. 1996's Clocktower is horror's second best kept gaming secret,so I always assumed more of the same. Guess not. Guess really, really not.

Good review -- it's fair in that it admits when the game nails horrific moments (that dead girl in the opening paragraph does sound like powerful stuff) just as the silly cut scene sound horrifyingly pantomime. Excellent stuff.


For us. For them. For you.

I actually did make it, using a collage website. But I stole the pictures, so I guess I 75% rock or something?

Thanks for reading!
