An even better game than the original, whose innocuous visuals hide a tense and unpredictable survival horror of surprising potency.

If you enjoyed Yomawari: Night Alone, you'll love Midnight Shadows. It keeps the creative elements of its predecessor intact while expanding on some of its finer points. If you haven't played Night Alone, you can still jump into Midnight Shadows and experience the same surprises as the original, both scary and cute.

It's been hard to find horror games that scratch my itch to be disturbed without catching me with cheap scares or leaving me with weeks of nightmares. I long for tense, atmospheric experiences that get me shivering and shaken and Yomawari: Midnight Shadows shook me to my core. It's a masterful horror game that tops anything else on the Vita, and rivals many other things on the PS4 as it blends detailed sound-design with rich art and a somber narrative to craft a breath-taking horror experience. Some puzzle segments can be obtuse, and the ending lacks the same sense of accomplishment of the first game, but despite all that, Yomawari continues to perfectly define horror.

An adventure that should be played by every fan of the survival horror genre. It is not based on gaming cliché and has an amazing 2D style that shows that great games can be created without having too many resources.

Interesting sequel that repeats almost everything that made Yomawari Night Alone great, but with less novelty.

Yomawari: Midnight Shadows is a worthy successor to one of my favourite horror games and an unforgettable experience that is marred with a few annoyances.

Yomawari: Midnight Shadows is a pretty basic horror title, with a creepy and disturbing atmosphere, and an interesting bestiary. The game is not too difficult, the super-deformed art direction is a little bit anticlimactic, but overall is a good scary ride.

Yomawari: Midnight Shadows shines a brave light to eschew some genre conventions, but not all. Though the lack of sound and solemn streets are sure to please anyone who loves horror, the abundance of save points makes death inconsequential, removing some terror that the atmosphere instills.

Yomawari: Midnight Shadows puts cute girls in a dark soundscape to create a wonderfully unnerving experience.
