Secret Neighbor is a multiplayer adventure game with the elements of horror developed Hologryph and published by tinyBuild Games in 2019. The game has received an overwhelming number of positive reviews and it can be played on Windows, PlayStation 4, Stadia, and Xbox One. If you play it on your Windows computer, you should have at least 5 GB of storage space to install it. Secret Neighbor boasts both excellent graphics and unnerving gameplay that offers quite an adrenaline rush.

An outstanding combination of visuals and content

The most exciting part about Secret Neighbor is the fact that it’s a social game, so you can have fun with your friends. In the game, there are 6 friends who think that their scary neighbor has kidnapped their friend and keeps him in his basement. The main goal of this fun game is to get to the basement through all the obstacles and save their friend. This gameplay has also been made more interesting by the developers – you can choose to be the Neighbor or you can be one of the friends in the group.

A player who is a Neighbor in disguise uses all the different tricks at his disposal to make sure that no one gets to his basement. This includes setting up traps, using smoke bombs, and other tools. The most important thing is to play in such a way that others don’t know you are the Neighbor. The friends have different qualities that may be helpful when going through the Neighbor’s house. They can be upgraded using different items you can find along the way but the ultimate goal is to find the keys to the basement.

The game is absolutely on-point when it comes to its graphics – it looks fun, sufficiently creepy, and there is immense attention to detail that you cannot help but notice. From each element in the room to characters and the locations – the game has its own distinct style that cannot be mistaken for anything else. Despite being a horror-type game, there is nothing overly gloomy or scary about it.

The default controls of the game are not complicated, but they can be changed at any moment. There are standard buttons used for running, jumping, picking objects, and more. The replay value is not too high but it’s sufficient, as you can play as the Neighbor and as a friend, so the experience will be different.

Fun game to play with friends

It’s not surprising that Secret Neighbor has so many fans. The game offers diverse gameplay and stunning graphics while remaining quite simple when it comes to controls. While branded as a horror game, Secret Neighbor is not a scary game in a traditional sense, but it creates an atmosphere of suspense when you play. It is exciting to play with friends regardless of whether you are one of the good guys or the bad guy.
