Hello Neighbor is a game that works just like some of the greatest classics of the action and adventure genre which are developed in a first-person view. To start off, the player has to break into his neighbor’s house with the intention to get down to the basement to find out what secrets he may be hiding.
However, as usual in this kind of game genre known as stealth horror, we’ll explore inhospitable scenarios where we’ll have to be ready for all sorts of traps and frights. This title isn’t an exception and we’ll be continuously running into different dangers and obstacles that we’ll have to avoid and solve to be able to carry on advancing. We’ll do so by controlling our character with the method of our choice: mouse and keyboard or gamepad.
One of the most noteworthy aspects of Hello Neighbor and one of the reasons for its popularity is definitely its artificial intelligence system. It’s an adventure game in which all the information provided by the player such as actions, decisions, movements, and others are all registered by the game. Thus, our neighbor will learn how we move and behave, placing traps and ambushes of increasing difficulty which will force is to come up with new ways of proceeding: the more we play, the more experience our neighbor will have, and the harder it will be to beat him.
On the other hand, you’re going to be able to make the most of a video game that will definitely remind you of many great horror adventure games, especially Alone in the Dark, one of the references which the development of this title has been inspired by.
