Granny Review: A Horror Game You Won’t Soon Forget
Granny is a horror game that puts you into grandma's house where you have five days to get out. Why do you need to escape? Because your Granny is not someone you’d like to be around. She’s there to hurt you, and your task is to do all to avoid becoming her victim in the tricky labyrinth.
Graphics and Sound 7/10
Here, if to talk about the design, the game can truly give you goosebumps just by the mere look at the teaser. We have a proper stealth story, which gives a first-person view with roughly drawn Granny’s house. We can’t say that furniture and the layout of the house are detailed enough, but they are pretty much recognizable. In fact, the slightly cartoonish design adds to the spooky atmosphere, while blood and gore are quite realistic. As for the sound, we’ll just say that it’s eerie enough to give you the adrenaline rush that you sought when choosing to play this type of game.
We didn’t have any issues with controls, but there are five different levels of difficulty, and they start from Practice, go up to Easy, Normal, Hard, and finish with Extreme. When you’re in a Practice mode, you have a chance to explore the house without Granny. However, you’ll need to bear in mind that the building is not free from dangers even on this beginner level.
You’re locked inside. You’re a prisoner. Your beloved Granny hunts you with a blood-stained bat. What’s your mission? You need to get out of the house. Yet, it’s going to be difficult since your grandma hears all and sees all, so if you drop something (and most likely that you will), you better hide. Even if you make a squeak, just RUN! That’s how tough and scary she is.
What you need to be very careful about are the bear traps. Moreover, cute-looking Granny’s pets might be even more dangerous than grandma herself. There are some weapons that you can find in the house, but you must remember that they can stop her only for a while.
There is an interesting thing though – when you drop an item (and Granny shouldn’t hear the sound if you want to survive), whatever you carried ends up on the other side of the room.
This is a game for kids aged 13 plus, but the viewing of violence can be damaging at any age. Blood splatters and jump scares may get very upsetting for any person, especially for young people or for elderly who’s under risk of seizure or heart attack.
Lasting appeal 9/10
There are a variety of ways to escape, but you’ll have to figure them out as you play. The building itself is interesting to explore, but not all ways out are safe, so you have to be careful and ready for attack no matter what.
Overall, those players who like horror games should feel the urge to get back to this game over and over again. Various plots and the promise of adrenaline rush significantly add to this game’s playability.
Our conclusion is pretty straightforward. If you’re scared by the mere thought of Granny knocking you out over the head with a baseball bat, don’t buy the game. If you’re not scared and want to get a lot of tingles and adrenaline, definitely get your hands on this game. In a way, it can be funny and entertaining. But only if you know what to expect.
