BEHIND CLOSED DOORS A DEVELOPERS TALE REVIEW

I was given a PS5 code from Publisher Sometimes You @Pinkerator Developer Polygonal Wolf

This is released in the UK on 18/5/2022 and in the UK is priced at £3.99.

INTRODUCTION

The story of a developer trapped inside a video game.

You play as Ethan, who works in the office for a small video game development company and trying to support his pregnant wife. It is just a normal week for Ethan, waking up, going to work, coming home, go to bed and repeat day after day. But then something strange happens. Ethan gets a unusual phone call in the middle of the night, and is somehow teleported to another dimension. Ethan must complete a few unusual trials and try to get back to the real world.

PROS

Enemies look cool and are interesting.

Easy to play as has simple controls which are good for all types of players.

Easy Achievements/Trophies for people into that as fast and easy.

Characters you meet are all interesting and different.

Fast and easy game and good value as only £3.99.

CONS

No real story made me feel not connected with character.

Slow game as took a couple in game levels before it became interesting.

Platforming sections were kinda dull.

When fighting bosses or enemies in arenas you just circle round while shooting them no real challenge.

Felt like game didn’t know what to do or what it wanted to be.

OVERALL SUMMARY

I GIVE THIS GAME A SCORE OF 5.5/10
