I can just imagine some kid saving up their allowance to buy this pricey meatball and crying afterward: if you're reading this, don't do it, Timmy! If you want your Goosebumps game fix, stick with the slick, lovingly-crafted 2015 adventure game that's $10 or less on more platforms.

As an interactive Goosebumps experience, Cosmic Forces has successfully recreated the beloved children's series with Goosebumps Dead of Night. However, the game only lasts a handful of hours, and a small chunk of my time was spent replaying sections because I wanted to collect achievements along the way for dying to each monster.

I wasn’t expecting Goosebumps Dead of Night to be particularly great, but I had no idea it was going to be this disastrous. The gameplay is beyond basic and uninspired, even for a children’s game. The graphics are all over place and even made me sick at times. It’s like they blew most of their budget on Jack Black, who only agreed to take the part because he was contractually obligated.

Although I enjoyed the plot, horror elements, and game mechanics of Goosebumps: Dead of Night!, there were various elements that lowered my enjoyment of the game. Having to restart my game or deal with lengthy pauses disturbed my enjoyment of the game, which is quite disappointing because of how much I love the Goosebumps franchise. However, the horror and game graphics were enough to keep me playing the game. I’ll surely go back and play in the future, especially with the great sense of nostalgia that it brought me.
