Shot in the Dark
Top Critic Average
Its immense creativity is what helps set Shot in the Dark apart from its peers. While some may find its platforming a bit more difficult to master, it's almost as stratifying mechanically as it it artistically. Rest assured that this hellaciously challenging trip to the corral is a Hamilton well spent.
Shot In The Dark really is a terrific experience for those who can appreciate their retro gaming going pre-Nintendo.
A deeply rewarding and brutally difficult experience.
Shot in the Dark introduces an innovative mechanic and then builds perfectly on it. At all times, you are compelled forward by the promise of exploring more of the twisted, dark world that Possum House Games has created.
All in all, Shot in the Dark is a very simple and straightforward game, but it succeeds at what it wanted to do: provide a genuinely creepy experience with the simplest graphics and controls one could imagine. This game made me feel more unsettled than many modern horror games out there.
