House of Hell reviews and comments

Translated by

Back in the past with a collection of books that marked a whole generation of avid readers of adventures and thrills. At a time when computers, very expensive, did not offer games as we know them now, the LDVELH were a solid alternative to escape into fantastic worlds and live fabulous adventures in the inhospitable lands populated of strange creatures. The cult of this series continues nowadays thanks to grizzling enthusiasts ^^. The digital version of this game is in every point excellent, intuitive and faithful to the original work. It brings of course revised and corrected graphics, a welcome simplicity of use, and a host of new things that make this purchase credible. The difficulty remains, she, high because the slightest mistake or the slightest oversight will make you miss a vital information for the continuation of the events. The game is very very affordable during the dirty steam... less than two euros. The music sticks well to the mood and will remind fans of the movies B the Halloween theme of John Carpenter. Few things to complain about this game. It's more about the nostalgic golden age of the series than the young shoots raised at Skyrim and CoD, but its price makes it very attractive. Overall rating: 16/20

House of Hell-digital adaptation of the legendary battle Fantasy (Fighting fantasy-genre of Game books), 1984. Language and gameplay. The Game is text. The Language here is English (although there is still French), and not the most difficult, because originally this series of books published in the U.S. in the publishing houses teenage literature. But still for a full game, the language somehow have to own. The gameplay is a martial fantasy. What does that mean? We have a text in which we choose where we go and what to do. But at the same time there are stats that are defined randomly throw "bones", the same "knuckles" we have fights, who threw more, that beats. The Main stat is fear. If It overflows we will lose, so we have to walk carefully. Plot. The Book will tell us a story full of horrors, dark rituals, occultism, and other Satanism. Our hero, quietly, peacefully rode on his business, but the broken car forced him to look for refuge in the sinister look of the mansion. And our hero, soon learns how mistaken was this decision. The Plot is beautiful, the forks in the game Nemerano, horror really felt. And the ending is something. After all, in the detectives all think that the murderer is a butler, here and there sneaking suspicion, but that's really... But you will learn in the book itself. Graphics and sounds. Text, stylization under the book, plus good enough illustrations of local horrors. Music well creates the atmosphere of a sort of a thriller. As a result. This Martial Fantasy is one of the books of the series, from the creators of the genre, which already speaks of its quality. The Book is legendary, and the adaptation came out, above all praise. Fans of books in the genre of horror, knowing English, categorically recommend! 10 bloody rituals of 10 http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=1126011506 P.
