Blackbay Asylum reviews and comments

Translated by

I really would have liked to have played it and I can imagine it certainly has its Appeal if it was Playable. But unfortunately I have just 3 FPS, the Game jerks in front of you but unfortunately you can't play it. And I find the regular Price of 20 Euros excessively excessive here. Since the FPS Problem is well known but not fixed, I really strongly advise against a Purchase!!! I had the Game in a Bundle and still feel pulled across the Table as I actually only bought the Bundle because of that Game. It is a great pity!

"Blackbay Asylum" is a story-driven horror adventure with puzzle insoles. We are a bullish, huge, nappy-wearing Psychopath And Serial Killer and write-in our Lunatic Cell-a Farewell letter to our Teddy, our Friend and Companion, because we are assigned for an operations experiment that we are likely to have Will not survive. Well, that's how ists. But what is it? The Cell Door is open. On the Corridors are bloody Grinding Tracks and various Corpses lie lazily in the Area. Hm, what strange things must have happened ... In a total of ten very different Chapters, we try to get to The Bottom of the mystery. Mostly from a Top-down perspective, but some Passages we also experience from the First-person point of view. The Length of the Chapters also varies widely. From under five Minutes to almost an Hour, everything is there. The Puzzles are creative. It is important to find Codes, solve Switch Puzzles or strive for mathematical Logic. The Challenge also varies from obvious to quite vvetrackt. The Game is Splatter. Body parts and Blood Lubricants are very common. Severed Body parts are part of the Basic Equipment. The essential Trick, though, is that the Protagonist contrasts the whole Chatter with his crude, black, wacky humour. And this Combination works amazingly well and entertains surprisingly sovereign. Virtually to every Picture on the Wall or to every Garbage bag in the Corner, our good Psycho delivers a (written) humorous Commentary. Conversations with other Characters are set to music, not too professional, but quite ambitious. Technically, the Game is rather weak, an indie title, the Graphics anything but a Pearl. The Sounds, too, are atmospheric, but hardly outstanding. Nevertheless, the Game creates its own crude, fitting atmosphere that is astonishingly convincing. Rating: 8/10 Atmosphere 7/10 Story 6/10 Graphic 6/10 Sound 7/10 Game Mechanics 7/10 Balancing 7/10 Game Pass Conclusion: Splatter adventure trash with high Ironie Factor. 7/10 Overall Rating
