Critic Reviews for Amanda the Adventurer
Ultimately, Amanda the Adventurer is a great example of the ability to tell stories in horror games, relying on the kind of in-depth lore and techniques fans have come to love from similar viral sensations; and Amanda is a league above some of the others like Poppy Playtime and Garten of Banban
Amanda the Adventurer is a clever little puzzle horror game with plenty of scares and a great story to tell. The tragic story behind this children’s cartoon is bound to keep you up at night, either with questions or a lingering anxiety about what’s behind your closet door.
Amanda the Adventurer is a unique and engrossing experience that isn’t necessarily scary, but will definitely keep players on edge as they uncover its dark secrets. It’s easy to think that it’s a simple and straightforward puzzler to begin with, but it doesn’t take long before the narrative takes unusual turns, the puzzles become more creative, and Amanda really starts to creep the player out with her sinister outbursts. It’s really, REALLY cool, and easily stands out as one of the more memorable horror experiences I’ve played through in some time.
Amanda the Adventurer is a welcome indie addition to the Nintendo Switch catalogue, with a compelling narrative and intriguing puzzles. It challenges the conventions of what we see more commonly in the genre, opting for a psychological, narrative horror instead of a more "physical" approach to scares. Unlocking multiple endings turns the game more attractive but the details of the plot usually being too hidden may hinder the experience. Finally, it's necessary to remember that, despite all its merits, this title may not be for everyone, especially [not indicated] for players who prefer action and concrete threats.
