Hello Neighbor review

The game is played in first person and the player needs to avoid being seen by the neighbor or his dog. Hello Neighbor was originally released on August 30th, 2017, and has been downloaded more than 1.2 million times.

Gameplay

The player starts the game by sneaking into the neighbor’s house. They will need to avoid being seen and can only stay in one spot for a few seconds without the neighbor or his dog, which is a German shepherd, noticing them. There are many different paths to take and the player may need to go through a window, crawl in the attic, or use a secret passage to avoid the neighbor. The player can also hide in the shadows, or turn on a light and hope that they are not noticed. If the player is seen, the neighbor will close and lock the door and the player will need to find another way to enter. The player can also startle the neighbor by knocking on the window.

Graphics

The graphics consist of 3D graphics and are not too detailed.

Replayability

The game is not replayable, as there are no alternative endings or secret endings.
