Critic Reviews for Charon's Staircase
An experience that put's little on the horror and more fun on the story twists, especially in its end, and will undoubtedly give you the best of what it can over when you go through solving puzzles and discovering its beautiful innovations that encourage you to search and explore the area around you. The game's simple and limited design, unfortunately, comes into play when it comes to graphics details, exploration mechanics, and bits that look flawed and incomplete. However, you might be able to forgive that given the price tag.

Charon’s Staircase is more a thriller than a horror with a very intriguing story that has some pretty cool twists. Some of the puzzles are a bit ambiguous and will leave you scratching your head, but in the end you’ll have experienced another treasure of storytelling from the minds of a talented and dedicated smaller studio.
Charon’s Staircase doesn’t exactly redefine the horror genre. It looks a bit rough, and its tried-and-tested gameplay doesn’t break any moulds. But the majority of its puzzles will keep you hooked, its story is interesting, and it absolutely nails creating a tense, horrifying atmosphere. That alone makes this a spooky adventure worth stepping into.
Charon's Staircase presents itself as a mystery experience first, and a horror game later. We get a few good scares along the way, but the real focus is on discovering the secrets that Oak Grove hides and uncovering the past of the mysterious abandoned area.
