Softonic Review


Imscared - A Pixelated Nightmare is a free indie horror game. Despite its retro graphics, this first-person horror delivers scares as well as being genuinely innovative. It's highly recommended for all horror fans.

I don't want to give too much away, but the game's introduction is great. It claims you need to make sure the RAR file was extracted properly or the game won't work. This probably means you'll have that folder window open as you begin, which is important, as that folder is somewhere you will come back to!

The first time you play Imscared - A Pixelated Nightmare, it seems like a pixelated Slender game. You're somewhere in the dark, and you need to find things to escape, you assume. But the game ends abruptly, and that is where things get interesting.

From here on, it's clear that Imscared - A Pixelated Nightmare is playing with you, which is quite unusual. Developer Ivan Zanotti has found a way for his game to be much more than the now common series of jump-scares, and this makes it pack a much bigger punch than the many slender clones out there.

Imscared - A Pixelated Nightmare is an fascinating little horror game. Turn out the lights, put on your headphones and enjoy it.
