Heavily inspired by Limbo and Inside, Little Nightmares are telling a story of another lost child. Six is a starving little girl in a yellow raincoat, which is trapped in a mysterious vessel named the Maw. Players are taking control of Six’s movement, in order to help her escape the ship and dangerous inhabitants, that’s been kidnaping and preparing children to be served as a feast for the Guests.
The control scheme is not including any combat moves, leaving players defenseless against any threat. Six can run, crawl, climb, push or pull, and in rare cases carry an object she can throw to stagger an enemy or solve a puzzle. The game gives players the ability to carry a lighted match at any time, inviting players to explore and search for the collectible statues.
Little Nightmares have 3 DLC levels, expanding the game beyond the perspective of Six, where the Runaway Kid, a young boy, who is trying to catch up to Six and having his own adventure, going through the Maw in the extra chapters, named “The Depths”, “The Hideaway” and “The Residence.”

Little Nightmares reviews and comments

One of the greatest games to ever exist. This is my current favorite video game of all time. 
«That ending!»
This games was a treat to play. My whole family enjoyed this game and we started Little nightmares II right away
«That ending!»
I do recommend this because it has a lot of good things going for it (beautiful graphics, genuinely creepy atmosphere, interesting setting and plot, addictive gameplay) but I do have one problem with it.

Trying to control the characters felt like trying to operate a forklift. 

The characters are slow and feel heavy to move, don't always interact with objects when you tell them to, and don't always move where you want to go. There were a lot of times when I was yelling at the screen because I couldn't get my character to go fast enough or it wouldn't obey my commands. This might be on purpose since this is a horror game, but constantly dying because I couldn't control the character right got really frustrating really fast. 

That said I can't really give it a negative review because playing it gave me fond memories of playing INSIDE, which is a good thing considering I don't always like being reminded of a better game than the one I'm playing. And now I have context for the sequel, which was highly recommended to me and is supposed to be much better, so there's that.

Overall, a good game, just wish it controlled better.
Very good :D

Popular Review: "Tarsier Studios has come a long way from the bubbly world of LittleBigPlanet with the dark and disgusting world of Little Nightmares. What it lacks in gameplay substance is made up for in visual and audio design. If that's a trade-off you're worth making, then Little Nightmares is a decent entry for the genre."

My Review: The game is playable and quite visually pleasant (even astounding at times), but nothing else. All the environments are repetitive, and so are the perils encountered. The plot is inconsequential. It takes far more to scare an adult than this game manages to do, so I can only confine it to the realm of walking simulators.
«Reviewers bribed»
Really eerie platform-puzzler which starts off meloncholicly cute and woithout spoiling too much has a much sinister depth under the surface. Great game!
Art, Design, Graphics and the overall created atmosphere are good. The story is vague but the game is capable of creating a believable dystopic world with a twist.
There is not such a thing as "horror" as advertised, just a bit unsettling feeling and one, two spooky moments.

The main problem is the gameplay. If you have played Inside or Limbo, Little Nightmares has a very dull movement. I often died just because the controls were off (the whole button layout baffled me) or you couldn't estimate distances or locations of the character and objects. I felt tiring dying because of this, so the game turned in a rather boring trial and error game, not challenging in a way.

TLDR: play Inside instead.
