Critic Reviews for Poltergeist: A Pixelated Horror
What feels a lot like the spiritual successor to Haunting Starring Polterguy, Poltergeist: A Pixelated Horror is a clever puzzle game that puts players in the shoes of a ghost trying to scare away unwelcome guests. The gameplay may be simple, but the level design shines and the 16-bit visuals are charming. Glitchy Pixel's new game proves once and for all that it's more fun to be the ghost.
Ultimately, Poltergeist: A Pixelated Horror leaves some to be desired from a design perspective, but the puzzles and variety to solutions is fun, engaging, and difficult without being frustrating. Challenges present themselves in a nice, sequential order that builds upon itself level after level.
Poltergeist is a very fun puzzle game, that really taxes the brain muscles occasionally but it's all done in such a lovely way that you never want to give in. It's addictive, entertaining, and makes me want to be a ghost. Can I call it "spooktacular"? No, best not, I've got more class than that. Oh, screw it - SPOOKTACULAR!
Poltergeist: A Pixelated Horror is a fun puzzle strategy game that would benefit from a bit of polish. Playing as a poltergeist and trying to scare people out of a house is an interesting concept for a puzzle/strategy game. It could probably only be recommended for those who really love the casual style puzzle/strategy games and find the idea playing the scary ghost fun. While there isn't really anything wrong with Poltergeist: A Pixelated Horror as a PC game, it would probably be better suited as a mobile game.
