About

It`s Halloween and the students of magic at Little Springs High and Innsmouth Academy are about to honor an ancient tradition: sneaking into school after midnight, turning themselves invisible, and scaring the living hell out of each other!

Hide and Shriek™ is a one vs. one multiplayer romp played out in ten minute matches. Your objective is simple: be a mischievous little rascal and scare your opponent half to death before time runs out! If there is no clear winner when the timer stops, the player with the most points wins the game. Points can be acquired by scaring your opponent, luring them into traps, or performing an ancient ritual.

There is just one catch: you are both invisible!

You will need to use cunning traps and potent spells to reveal your opponent. Once you spot them, sneak up on them and give them a good scare! Just remember they are looking for you too, and if you`re not careful you might be the one jumping in your seat!

  • Play with friends or strangers in ten-minute one vs. one multiplayer matches!
  • You are both invisible! You will need all your cunning to spot your opponent: look for doors opening, objects flying in midair, or traps being sprung!
  • Over thirty different spells to discover, each with their own impish effect: blind your opponent, booby-trap doors, unleash a demon upon them, and much more!
  • Shriek at your opponent to scare them! Use scary masks of famous characters like Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton, or use skulls and zombie heads that can be modified with accessories like gooey eyeballs, bloody hatchets, and much more!
  • Dominate the leaderboards or get scared trying!

Hide and Shriek reviews and comments

It makes a LOT of fun to play it with friends. And its for free. You can play this game for hours. Without friends you shouldnt play this game. At the beginning the movement is a bit weird but you can handle it after some minutes.

After dealing a little with the Runes and The Game functions, you can get started. Great Scare Game! Muha! What will be your Strategy? ;) Thanks to the Developers for this creative ~ nasty ~ game Fun:)

Real Game.Do Really Fun. Just what's a shame is that it charges so long to find a Game. With Friends, though, it's certainly great. Plus, the Game is free and I don't even need a GB of Storage Space. So I would recommend everyone to download the Game and form their own Opinion;)

So I played this a few Rounds now and I have to say of the Idea simple but Tactically you can do a lot. Super play is great fun and you get scared every now and then not because of the Jumpscares but because mans doesn't expect. Jacobs. 9/10 because you can buy something: 3

First of all the concept is nice this is what pushed me to download the game then IG I waited quite a while to find an opponent Finally I have little find a player so I start the game! And it's the drama... It was plaaaaat from flat NADA no sensation (fear/panic/stress) I got caught, I surprised, put orbs on dressers, picking up runes... etc. I got bored. Fortunately it is a FTP because I have insta delete. for me it sucks after can be that it can please another...

Very good little game! The price is a quite correct of the expectation. The jumpscares are sometimes afraid (of or interest) but all the time! When to the mechanics of the game itself: it is to the wear of all those who will be eager for thrills! For my part I find the whole successful because there is some strategy bet to make according to the opponent (recover the magic balls?, scare the opponent?, pose traps everywhere?). Beware we can take our own traps that is why you will need a lot of memory! I recommend it! Good game and happy hallowen!

A concept, my faith, very interesting! The idea is well worked but it remains to work the start system of the game [1/2 the game does not launch properly] and I pray for one or two new maps because it is true that we have fun with friends but after 4-5 Parties on the same environment it becomes very repetitive. Even though 5.99 is a far too expensive taken for a game that is not sufficiently worked on the level of diversity I recommend it. He suggests that it is boring but it is really fun. I have only one negative opinion, that of: < < But what do developers do? > > because it's nice to get a good game, but as a player, I'm expecting some updates about the game.
