When I read that Haunt the House: Terrortown was a platform puzzle game about a ghost I knew that I was all in on this. This is a charming and fun game that I have had an absolute blast with over the weekend. My sister got me a Steam gift card for Christmas and I decided I would spend it all on these games I have had my eye on, but never actually played. Well, I certainly played the heck out of this game and while it is very short, I had so much fun with this I could see myself coming back to this for an hour here or there over the years.
Get Out Of My Town
The premise of Haunt the House: Terrortown is fun and also kind of dark too. We play as a little ghost who is living his best ghost life until all these annoying meat bag living folks start moving in! Our ghost just wants to be left alone and things to go back to the way they were. The way to do this is by scaring the heck out of the people so that they become terrified and leave the town… or kill themselves! I told you it could get pretty dark! While there is not a lot to it, the premise is certainly something that I got a kick out of.
Beware A Good Scare!
Haunt the House: Terrortown is a 2D game where you control a ghost. There are different locations in the town that you have to haunt and you do not just go up to people and shout boo! You have to possess various objects that are in each area and use these to scare the pants off the townsfolk. You can possess a stuffed bear, a dinosaur skeleton, a chandelier, and so on. There is a good sense of progression here as at first, you may only be able to move them a little bit, but as people get more scared, you can move things more and more!
Cute, But Deadly
The whole style of Haunt the House: Terrortown is something that I really do like. At first glance this is a very cute kind of game, I like the way it has a kind of old timey cartoon look to it. I would probably say that this has a bit of Cuphead about it in the way the characters and visuals in general look. Everything here has a ton of personality and when they get scared it is quite funny, but we do also have that darkness of when they off themselves. You can unlock new ghosts to play as. These play the same, but it can be fun to play as a different themed ghost.
I know that you can get through Haunt the House: Terrortown in just a couple of hours. However, it is a fun-filled couple of hours that just fly by. I played through this in one sitting, but loved it so much I dived straight back in with a different ghost to do it all over again. This for me is sure to become a pallet cleanser kind of game that I fire up in between other games. I highly, highly recommend that you check this game out.
