A charming and disturbing horror game that never outstays its welcome. Worse than Death has a wonderful human narrative throughout, and is a great way to spend an evening

The port over to the Nintendo Switch for Worse Than Death isn’t bad at all. The puzzles are hard but not mind breaking, and the overall atmosphere is rock solid. If there was a way to better fix the controls during those puzzles segments where you have to shuffle things around and more variety in terms of monsters, this would be a better two and half hour experience.

The game can be completed in a brisk 2-3 hours, which is just long enough that it doesn't overstay its welcome and yet just short enough that it feels lacking in certain ways. If you're desperately looking for a short bit of horror to keep you entertained for at least a couple hours, it's worth giving a shot, but you likely won't find an overly memorable experience.

There really isn’t much more I can say about Worse Than Death other then that you should pick it up if you enjoy horror games. It has a very appealing price point and you can enjoy it’s horrific pixel art world and story in just a few hours.
