The Secret Neighbor game takes place after the first act of Hello Neighbor. However, Secret Neighbor is a multiplayer action movie. Players will play the role of children trying to get into the basement to a neighbor.
Graphics and Sound 10/10
The developers spent a lot of time and effort to show players a cool product. In every location, there is a darkness of parts, rooms, doors, boxes, books, all kinds of shelves, and drawers that complement the atmosphere. Also, great work has been done on the lighting - lights, lamps, darkened locations, and stuff like that also works great for the gameplay. You will have a flashlight, which not only helps you in your search but is also a conditional means of protection from a neighbor.
In the lower-left corner of the screen, you will find your character portrait and current health status. In our case, you are playing as a child. If your health bar drops to zero, you will be knocked down, and you will need the help of other players. As a neighbor, you simply "die" and are immediately reborn away from your children. You can view your skills next to your character portrait. In our case, we are playing as the Leader. You can press Q to inspire your allies and give them additional movement speed. The second ability (red icon) is a skill that can be used only under certain conditions - in our case, you need to inspire 25 times. In the center of the screen, you will find your inventory - each character can carry up to 2 items. The only exception is the Bagger, which can carry 3 items, and after 120 seconds with a full backpack, up to 4 items. If you don't know the controls, you will find clues for the item you are currently holding in the lower right corner of the screen.
The gameplay of the game is pretty simple and straightforward for everyone who has played this genre. You have a location - a house and its surroundings. You also have two teams - one with six children, and the other with one neighbor. The task of the children is to save their companion, who is locked in the basement of the house, but for this, you need to first find the keys to open the locks on the door to the basement. Keys are scattered throughout the house in various boxes, boxes, and other caches, and you need to scour the house in search of them. The neighbor's task is to catch such a bastard and throw them away, preventing the characters from reaching the cherished keys.
Lasting Appeal 9/10
Participants are given 15 minutes for each match, but often the final comes much faster. It all depends on the team's coherence - if all the players scatter to different rooms, the Neighbor will very quickly catch everyone one at a time and put them in cages (where they can be obtained from). On the other hand, if you run in a crowd, you may not have time to explore the whole house. Therefore, you constantly have to choose between risk and the speed of finding keys.
The developers pleased with a rather cool product - the game seems to be simple, understandable, and easy to understand, but it brings just tons of emotions. This is especially beneficial if you are playing with friends, and your neighbor is an experienced player. Deceiving the insidious enemy is very fun and exciting, plus rounds of only fifteen minutes allow you to quickly play, get some pleasure and go about your business.
