Fear Me www.bit.ly/fearmegame At first glance, FearMe’s gridded play area and boxy visuals call to mind Michael Brough’s 868-Hack. Nikola Vlahovic’s Ludum Dare effort is, in fact, a ten-level puzzle game that casts you as a cheerful ghost in the business of frightening children. You scare kids simply by floating into their vicinity, and you’re able to pass through solid walls of any thickness by hitting Space (though once committed, you have to wait until you pop out of the other end to regain control). It would be simple were it not for the kids’ pesky habit of hitting the lightswitch – the merest whiff of photons, it turns out, will bring your haunting to an end.
FearMe’s clever blend of spatial puzzling and twitchbased play makes for an enjoyable ten levels, but we found ourselves mourning a life cut short at the end.
