Secret Neighbor is a multiplayer action game based on Hello Neighbor. Players will play the role of children trying to get into the basement to a neighbor. The catchy moment is that one of them is a disguised neighbor.
The gameplay of the game is quite simple and understandable for everyone who played in this genre. The location is a house and its surroundings. A group of children is trying to get into the basement of a suspicious neighbor's house to save a missing friend. The only problem is that one of the children is a traitor, a neighbor disguised as a child. His task is to gain the trust of other players and betray them. Children win if they fall into the basement. The neighbor’s purpose is to catch such a lousy and throw them away, preventing the characters from reaching the wanted keys. This is extremely exciting and there is a certain balance that allows you to have fun playing for both children and a neighbor. In total, they give fifteen minutes per round, so the game keeps you in suspense and doesn’t last long.
The virtual graphics world of Secret Neighbor excites from the first sight. The developers spent a lot of time and effort in showing us the cool product. Literally, in every location, there is plenty of details, rooms, doors, drawers, books, all sorts of shelves, and drawers that complement the atmosphere. Besides, excellent work was done on lighting - lights, lamps, darkened locations. You even will have a flashlight, which not only helps in the search but also is a conditional means of protection from a neighbor.
The development of locations at such a high level cannot but rejoice, especially if you are a big fan of such graphics and want to enjoy the setting of the game-cartoon. The atmosphere is incredibly attractive thanks to the well-developed design.
