The Spooky Gamecuts continue for Halloween 2011 with Haunted House from 1982. This was an Atari game and it may be hard to believe because the game only consists of blocks, but this game used to freak me out when I was little. It’s the perfect example of a scary retro game and is actually one of the first survival horror games! Eat your heart out Resident Evil!
The first spooky Gamecut of October 2011, The Binding of Isaac. This is a new 5 dollar Steam release for PC and Mac created by half of the team behind Super Meat Boy. It just came out late last week and wow is it creepy.
You play as Isaac, a boy threatened by his mother that she will sacrifice him to god. He escapes to the cellar where all is well, or so he thinks! The basement is filled abominations and monsters and he will have to fight his way through 5 levels of it to get away.
The game sure is creepy and spooky but is it any good?
