Hello Neighbor is a survival horror video game published by tinyBuild, and is now available for Xbox One, Windows 10, Mac, and Linux. The game is a first-person stealth/horror game, and was released for Xbox One on December 8, 2017. Players must sneak through a neighbor's house to uncover the truth about what's going on inside. Hello Neighbor is a first person stealth, horror game. The player must sneak through a neighbor's house to uncover the truth about what's going on inside. They do this by completing quests, exploring the house for collectables, and ultimately escaping. The player can also use light and sound to their advantage. For example, the player can turn on a light in a room to distract the neighbor, but they must turn it off before they are caught. The player can also hide in the dark if they are being chased.

Gameplay

Gameplay is mostly stealth-based, with the player having to avoid being caught by the "neighbor" or his robot. The player can sneak past the "neighbor" by walking behind objects that block his view. If the player is caught, they will be captured and taken to a secret lair where the player will be forced to complete puzzles as a prisoner. The gameplay in Hello Neighbor consists of sneaking into the Neighbor's house, collecting evidence to find out their identity, and exploring the Neighbor's basement in order to find out what they are hiding. The player has to make sure they don't get caught by the Neighbor in order to progress in the game.

Graphics

The graphics are cartoonish but can be rather unsettling at times because of the context. The graphics in Hello Neighbor are in a 3D pixelated format, with the player's character being in a 3D pixelated form. The graphics are simple with not a lot of detail in the house.

Replayable

The game is fairly replayable, as there are multiple ways to complete the game and it is possible to beat the game without being found out. The replayability of Hello Neighbor is iffy. There are some achievements that can be unlocked in the game, but the game only takes around six hours to complete.

Conclusion

Overall, Players are tasked with helping their character escape the neighbor's house. They do this by completing quests, exploring the house for collectables, and ultimately escaping. The player has to sneak around, and can use light and sound to their advantage. One example is turning on a light in a room to distract the neighbor, but they must turn it off before they are caught. If they are being chased, they can hide in the dark.

Pros:
  • Freedom to explore and experiment
  • Short gameplay
  • Interesting story
  • Fun and suspenseful
Cons:
  • Not much replayability
  • Lack of information about the neighbor
