Critic Reviews for World of Horror

Atmospheric, imaginative, and enjoyably unpredictable-this is one of the year's best horror games.

Structural complexity and a magpie's eye for pilfering makes for a strange, fragmentary journey into nightmare.

World of Horror seems to hit all its goals. While its approach to horror is rather derivative of Junji Ito, it’s applied in a creative way and with a vision of its own. I can’t say I was blown away because it really is exactly the game that it claims to be. However, I was immensely satisfied. It’s a wonderfully modular experience, but if you’re deathly afraid of numbers, then that’s where you’ll find the real horror.

World of Horror isn't a game for all horror lovers, because of its 80s conversational adventure style. But if you connect with its formula, with its roguelite touches, its turn-based combats and its visuals, then get ready to have a great time. Too bad it doesn't squeeze out all the options that Nintendo Switch offers.

A horror role-playing game commendable for its inspirations and aesthetics, much less for everything else.

World of Horror gets its art direction and gameplay mechanics right. But it comes with a learning curve, and can eventually feel stale after doing the same mysteries multiple times.

World of Horror is one of the most unique roguelites we've seen on the Switch eShop to date, its expert fusion of text-based adventure, survival horror, and roguelike mechanics makes for a difficult, harrowing, and spooky adventure that we'd recommend you give a shot. Not everyone will be charmed by its extremely retro aesthetics, but if you can get into the right mindset for giving this one a playthrough, you'll find there's a lot to love.

This turn-based horror RPG took its sweet time to full release, but it was well worth it with an addictive gameplay loop, a compelling battle system, and a stunningly beautiful visual aesthetic.
