Critic Reviews for Little Nightmares - The Hideaway
The ending to Little Nightmares: The Hideaway is very creepy indeed, and looks to tie things together with the exploits of Six from the main adventure, perhaps in the next piece of DLC. For now, though, this finely crafted puzzle-platform-adventure is highly enjoyable and truly gripping and tense in places. More laidback than The Depths, though, this makes for a better experience overall as the whole atmosphere can be appreciated more. A few minor gameplay hiccoughs cannot take away from the fact this will definitely be a few quid well spent, and hopefully the wait for the next episode is not too long.
Overall the new dynamic of cooperative puzzle solving is something that slots nicely into the gameplay of Little Nightmares. The hour-long DLC explores the lives and origins of the Nomes whilst still incorporating the eerie and unsettling feel of the Little Nightmares game.
Little Nightmares remains a small pearl this year, for the tones used and for the artistic direction, but it will not be with these additional content that will fill the gaps that had already come to an end in April. The hope is that with the latest DLC there will be a chance to have a narrative construct more substance than reflection, even without disdaining the latter.
