The first time I saw a trailer for Evil Nun: The Broken Mask I had a real sense of deja vue the whole time I was watching it. Then it all clicked for me and I knew why this was! This is actually a remaster/re-release of a game that was released for mobile devices a few years back. As I am a huge horror fan, I always meant to try it out, but to be honest with you I am not a huge fan of mobile gaming, especially for an immersive horror game. Today I thought it would be fun…. or frightful to take a closer look at what you can expect from this game.
Sister Madeline Will Be With You Now
The story of Evil Nun: The Broken Mask is pretty awesome and totally the kind of thing you could imagine a company like Blumhouse turning into a movie. You are invited to go to this summer camp where it is going to be all fun and games, hanging out and meeting new people.
Well, it was all a ruse and this is no summer camp! Instead, it is a rundown hellhole (an old school) and a demonic nun called Sister Madeline is stalking all of the people there with her giant ass hammer! Do you have the guts and skills to survive and get away with your life?
The Big Screen Experience
One of the reasons I never gave Evil Nun: The Broken Mask a try on a phone is that I just could not imagine myself playing a horror game on a small screen. Do not get me wrong, the original game which has the subtitle, Horror in the School looks great for a mobile game, but I think there has been a great deal of work done to the presentation in this PC release. Things are more detailed, there is a much better use of lighting and shadows, and even old creepy Sister Madeline looks way creepier here.
Hide Or Run!
In the game, you will need to try and keep your nerve in order to get out. Evil Nun: The Broken Mask is a horror game, but I would say the gameplay is more on the stealth/puzzle side than anything else. It is split up into chapters that will move the story along, but also move you to a new section of the place where you have been taken. You can try and find and save other children and you can see if you can solve the various puzzles that will show you the way out. The whole while, Sister Madeline is on the hunt for you and you can hide or just run for your life.
The mobile game looked like a lot of fun and from what I have seen those who got into it on an Android or iPhone have loved it. However, I am glad I waited as Evil Nun: The Broken Mask has all the makings of an awesome horror game. I love a solid single-player horror experience and it looks like that is exactly what this game is bringing to the table.
I just wish it would have actually made it out when it was supposed to, but hey if they are making it as good as it can be then I guess a little delay is not a bad thing!
- Sister Madeline is a fantastic antagonist
- I liked the big bump up the visuals have been given
- The game is way more challenging than you would think
- The puzzles are going to test you, but not frustrate you
- While things are randomized, I do wonder if there will be much replay value
- I hope that they give a release date for the full game sooner than later!
