Description: Horror house is a game designed to make you sweat at the faintest sounds or movements. Your objective is to search the house for 6 assorted body parts while evading and cleansing the unholy, demonic spirits that creep inside the house. Armed with your flashlight and crucifix, you search the house for these severed body parts. The more body parts you cleanse, the angrier the spirits get, and the more likely you will not get out alive.
Review: I’ve got to say, I do feel VR games are going backwards instead of forwards. ‘Horror House’ looks like it was made for the Gear VR and would have been just as good on that older system. The idea is you run around a house collecting a severed hand and five fingers. These body parts can be anywhere and there are evil spirits roaming the house as well. The good news is you can kill them by waving your crucifix in front of them, but they just spawn back somewhere else. If this game was free or as close as I could have excused the lack of content and boring far too dark graphics, but when it costs £5.79 the only real advice I can offer is to stay well clear of this. If you grabbed this as part of a cheap bundle and paid pennies you might enjoy it way more than I did.
