Description

After his brother, known for taking extreme risks, disappears in the Himalayas, Eric Simmons reluctantly heads off to the village of Lhando, his last known location. He has arranged to meet with his brother's employer - but the town is completely deserted. What's more, everything has been abandoned, and bodies lie rotting in the streets. The locals were desperate to get away from someone... or something - but who or what? Only by exploring Lhando and the the mountain, Chomolonzo, will Eric find the answers he seeks, and hopefully, his brother.

Cursed Mountain is a survival horror game in the vein of Silent Hill. As Eric, players explore haunted locations for clues that will lead them to Frank's disappearance. Early on, Eric is taught by a monk to use his "third eye", which can see the unseen, such as sacred seals. This is performed by pointing the Wii Remote at the screen. As to be expected, ghosts appear to attack Eric and prevent him in his quest. The player can fend them off by performing gestures with the Wii Remote and Nunchuk. Eric can attack the ghosts with his pick axe, and then finish them off by using his third eye to spot their weak point, and attack it. As Eric explores, he will discover more upgrades for his axe that will allow him to break more seals and progress further.

As the game takes place in the mountains, the Wii Remote and Nunchuk are also used for mountain climbing. By gesturing upward in a climbing motion, Eric will climb up icy walls. Eric can also stop a fall by using his pick axe to dig into a wall as he is falling down.
