While hiding from the rampaging monsters, you are to find items to interact with in the otherworldly rooms. And as more mysteries unveiled, the dark past of a cursed school will finally surface. 2D atmospheric horror with spine-chilling atmosphere. Immersive gameplay and puzzle solving experience Unique Taiwanese/Eastern cultural references. Original sound tracks, fusing Electronic, Lo-Fi, and Rock with traditional Asian instruments.

Sweeter the Brain twists never crash: With Detention, Red Candle Games delivers Asia Confash horror at its best. Two-dimensional? No matter – the Point-and-click adventure from Taiwan almost achieves the Sense of commitment of the strong First-person competition. Between classic Puzzles in The Style of Zak McKracken or Indy Jones (FSK 40), the best survival horror manner is also run and tricked (FSK 18), so all Friends of Far Eastern Horror Games should compete for Rehearsal.

Now what do we have here? An Asia university ring ghost horror Silver Hill blend. All this as an Old-school 2D adventure game. Graphically, the Thing doesn't travel trees out. People with a real school English you get here "quite": There is a lot of talk. German Subtitles don't exist here. Certainly not a Voiceover, either in English or in Chinese! Far, I have come-noch-not. Atmosphere is present, but Shockers of Stool are so Far In short supply. For that, the Game comes years too late: Outlast and Layes of Fear just shock and shower way too well. The Price is justified! The Final Fence is still being passed. So far: Light Horror with Charm.

What shall I say... I bought Detention Expecting to experience a good Horror Game. I wasn't disappointed. What surprised me, though, and now leaves me at half past four In the morning, with a multicoloured feeling, is the unexpectedly tragic Component of overarching History. It teaches you, in a very personal and downright intimate Way, a Story that is not only heartbroken but also very grim. If you can even begin to do something with psychological Horror, you should definitely treat yourself to this little work of art. This Review is admittedly not particularly rich in Information. However, this Game should be experienced entirely by everyone.

This Game is just awesome! The Atmosphere is great (it is advisable to play at appropriate times of The day), the Story is interesting and interesting conveyed, the Graphic Style is just beautiful and the Music Is probably the Hammer! The Game Mechanics are a bit "unpleasant," if I may put it that way. I would have liked to control the Game with the Keyboard as well (at least the Walking), but it was never hakely or anything else. I took a lot of Time to look at everything (and a few Times I just stuck to the Puzzles, which wasn't often), and so got to about 3 Hours. It could have been quietly like longer, although I don't know if that would have seemed stretched. Personally, this was definitely worth the Money to me! An absolutely recommended Game!
