Creeping Terror [ 3DS CIA ]
One of a small number of horror games available on the 3DS. Creeping Terror It is the product of Sushi Typhoon, a horror-focused subsidiary of the Nikkatsu film studio. Although Sushi Typhoon mainly produces movies, this is actually their second game, following a PS Vita download title “Irezumi no Kuni”. I’m not quite sure what genre of game that one is, but it involves cute, traditionally-tattooed anime girls representing different districts of Tokyo so I am keen to try it some day. (I actually passed by their booth and picked up a flyer at last year’s Tokyo Game Show!). While Takashi Miike is associated with Sushi Typhoon I didn’t notice his name in the credits of Creeping Terror. I did spot Yudai Yamaguchi though, and this appears to be his baby. In any case, Creeping Terror immediately reminds one of Clock Tower, with you moving from room to room to avoid and hide from invincible monsters while you try and figure out a way to escape from a mine, mansion, and hospital (all old and long abandoned). You play a highschool Japanese girl, but the game actually takes place in America, where she is coming to the end of some study abroad homestay program. You and three of your American classmates/friends/homestay family members are desperately trying to become Youtube famous when you wind up in over your heads. Which is to say, the only way in or out becomes unusable and there are things trying to kill you.
The gameplay is pretty straightforward, played on a 2D plane. Creeping Terror There are only a handful of usable items, and all the hiding spots act pretty identical. The enemies behave in predictable ways, and I didn’t find it very difficult at all, even though I’m by no means well-versed with this type of game. The spacing of the enemies I thought was handled pretty well, as I was always at least somewhat nervous of being ambushed. I think the graphics are the game’s real strong-suit. It is dark and scary, the lighting with your flashlight (smartphone app) looks good, and the 3D adds some pretty depth to an otherwise 2D game. Definitely try turning your 3D switch up if you get a chance to play this one. In any case, there were some genuinely creepy rooms throughout the game, which really helped give you a feeling of dread when exploring, which is where you’ll spend most of your time.
