Playable Characters 10/10
The game introduces many different characters. There are six children with unique traits and one neighbor. One boy, for example, is a geeky inventor. He collects cogwheels and can craft flashlights. You can interact with other players when necessary while trying to complete the task and save another child.
The game offers a purely multiplayer experience, and it establishes spontaneous humor and unexpected situations. This online game is perfect for quick sessions with random people or your friends. One of you will always be the neighbor who will turn into one kid and try to kill everyone else.
Game Mechanics 9/10
The neighbor can turn into children and fool others. His role is assigned randomly to one player. If you get it, you have to pretend that everything is fine and make other players trust you. At the same time, you should fulfill tasks and activate neighbor's special powers.
These powers let you show your real face, catch or scare other players. Besides, you can take forms of different objects that are scattered around the house. For example, you can turn into a fruit, roll close to another player, and transform into the neighbor. As you can see, there are many ways to make them shiver.
Music and Graphics 10/10
This is a personal opinion, but the atmosphere is amazing. You spawn into a dark and moody map with simple but nice graphics. This is exactly what we would expect from a cartoony game. It also has an amazing soundtrack and sound effects. They make you feel like you're hunted by a predator that could kill you at any moment. When something happens, a spooky tune plays.
Lasting Appeal 4/5
Secret Neighbor is a highly replayable multiplayer game. You can experiment with classes and discover different tactics. Getting good at the game can take quite some time, which is the point of any online game. You can also check out the in-game store and buy trinkets and costumes for your character.
If you enjoy Cat&Mouse games, look no further than Secret Neighbor. When you trust your team members, it can be really scary-looking how other players are getting killed and being the last survivor.
