Little Nightmares – Are You Ready to Hit a Nerve?

14,733

Little Nightmares is a psychological puzzle-platformer that somewhat lets you play with your childhood fears. The main character is a 9-year-old girl named Six who is trying to escape the sinister place called Maw and its terrifying inhabitants.

Graphics — 5/5

One of the game’s strengths is the graphics since it’s really detailed and elaborate. The color grade, the styling, and the lighting – the designers just nailed it. You feel immersed in the game’s atmosphere right from the start.

Along with the graphics, the soundtrack and sound effects are great. From the creaking floorboards to the dissonant ambiance that fill the Maw’s chambers – any little detail can freak you out, and that is what you expect from a game with such atmosphere.

Gameplay — 5/5

The game has five levels, and most times, you complete pretty simple tasks: run, jump, climb up boxes to reach a vent, look for a key, and solve straightforward puzzles. This may get boring at some point, yet tense chases that you have with the in-game enemies bring back the exhilarating atmosphere.

I must say, Little Nightmares can really scare you at some moments, so be prepared. Especially when you have to sneak past terrifying creatures that inhabit the Maw and solve basic puzzles under their noses. These moments are the most thrilling and frightening as they may catch you at any time. You know that it’s just a game, yet this doesn’t make it any less tense.

If you fail, you can restart the level without being overtly penalized. It will probably take you a couple of attempts to succeed even in the most challenging sequences. Just keep in mind that the Maw’s inhabitants can react differently when you restart the level. For instance, if they didn’t find you under a bench, the next time someone will probably look right under it.

Controls — 3.5/5

In Little Nightmares, the controls are definitely a downside. They are pretty inconvenient, so it takes some time to get used to them. For instance, you have a separate button for grabbing and clutching things, and it’s not helpful in long chases when you may not press it at the right time.

Due to the awkward controls, you may crash into objects, fall, and fail in jumping. This can be really annoying, yet the overall gameplay is not bad.

Replay Value — 4/5

You will probably pass the game up to the end in 2 or 3 hours since there are just five levels which aren’t very difficult. Replaying Little Nightmares may be interesting for fans of the genre, especially if you like Limbo or INSIDE. On the other hand, you may feel that Little Nightmares reminds of these games a lot – and one may not like this.

Anyway, replaying the game isn’t very challenging. There are certain questions remained even after the ending, and unfortunately, playing Little Nightmares once more won’t answer them.

Conclusion

Awesome graphics, daunting and thrilling atmosphere, and challenging storyline – Little Nightmares really attracts your attention. The game will be especially interesting for the fans of Limbo, INSIDE, and other games of the genre.

Still, if you’re ready to play with your childhood fears, Little Nightmares can make you shivering and jittering. It’s a unique game experience that gives you a couple of hours filled with adventure, thrill, and eeriness.

Conclusion

Despite its plain puzzles and repetitive actions, Little Nightmares is definitely a journey worth taken.
