Critic Reviews for Amanda the Adventurer

Amanda the Adventurer will not please everyone, but it's a very niche experience. Hardcore horror fans who want a shorter experience and analog horror elements will have found their perfect title. (Review Policy)

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

The game is pretty fun and is mostly full of positives, except that the story is a huge disappointment after the demos, and there are some puzzles that don't make any sense. It's a unique game and can be worth buying when on sale, but not for the full £8.

Amanda the Adventurer offers a fun and creepy ride that perfects pacing and characterization, and it’s absolutely worth the price tag and the hours of sleep you’ll lose playing it.

Amanda the Adventurer is a unique and enjoyable horror puzzle game that is worth playing through. It's short and not too challenging but has a strong sense of itself and tells a good story.

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.
