Secret Neighbor review

Secret Neighbor

Published & copyrighted by Hologryph

Secret Neighbor is a multiplayer horror survival game. You have to go back to the Neighbor’s house to save your friends from the creep who locked him in the basement. The game was created by Hologryph and released in 2019. This is the part of the Hello Neighbor series. The game is available on the Windows platform.

Gameplay 10/10

Gameplay is one of the main attractions of the Secret Neighbor. It is well-thought, well-developed, and incredibly fresh. Compared with many other horror adventure games, Secret Neighbor has its own unique “flavor”. It is rather a social deduction game, where you have to find all the keys in the big Neighbor’s house and help your friend to get out of the basement. Since Secret Neighbor is a part of the Hello Neighbor series, I recommend you to play Hello Neighbor in the first place. You don’t have to play the entire game, just the 1st Act.

Secret Neighbor action happens between 1st and 2nd Act of Hello Neighbor. Your friend Nicky is held in a basement by a Neighbor and you with your friends decide to sneak into the house to release him. The problem is, one of your friends is actually a Neighbor in disguise. He has to kill all the kids and keep Nicky in the basement. The children have to find the keys and not get caught by the Neighbor.

Visuals 10/10

Secret Neighbor offers incredibly vivid and greatly made visuals. This horror does not look like horror at all until you get caught by the Neighbor. If you are sick and tired of gloomy and scary horrors, this game is for you. You will wander around the house and will be able to admire its design. There are costumes you can change. The game developers also reveal funny seasonal updates, including new costumes and house decorations. The soundtrack matches the action on your screen.

Play Play Repeat 10/10

There is no particular mystery you have to solve unlike in the Hello Neighbor game. The Secret Neighbor does not lose its uniqueness after the first time you win it. You can go back there to explore other parts of the house, enjoy new updates, and scare more friends to death. You can become a Neighbor or a child. You may even ask different friends to join you. The game does not get boring so easily.

Controls 9/10

Despite the total greatness of the game, there is something that spoils the whole picture perfectly. While the controls are pretty intuitive, in general, and are easy to keep up with, you may face glitches. The game can freeze from time to time during dangerous moments. One moment and you walk around the house, another moment and the Neighbor attacks you while you stay frozen. Before you start playing, make sure you have a strong and reliable Internet connection.

The Verdict

Secret Neighbor is a perfect game for a small company of friends. You can play together, improving your trust issues. You may also build a winning strategy and follow it to rescue Nicky or to kill the kids, depending on the role you have. It has high replay value and outstanding graphics.
