"The Uninvited," is best played with a couple friends so there's more theories going around about the puzzles. It's a lot of fun to bring out the Nintendo and try beat this game in one sitting. It'll be sure to offer some delicious nostalgia...that and there's a lot of funny ways to kill yourself. Uninvited will appeal to fans of, "Maniac Mansion," and the forementioned classic, "Shadowgate," both available on the Nintendo. And if you enjoy your time spent with, "The Uninvited," try either of those games, or, "Deja Vu," on Nintendo if you're looking for a real challenge.
Once again, the atmosphere is first-rate. You really believe you’re exploring a haunted house where anything could happen at any time; the first time you see a chibi demon do a jig across your screen, you won’t know whether to laugh or turn off the game. Kemco’s point-and-click formula was wearing thin by the time Uninvited arrived, but that’s not the game’s fault. Proto survival-horror at its creepiest.
Uninvited is not your typical Nintendo fare. On a system known primarily for platforming action requiring great feats of dexterity, this one works tests a different set of skills as it requires a good deal of patience and abstract thinking. Even if you have played it on a personal computer, you still may want to give it a go since not everything will sync with how you remember it, and this is not necessarily a bad thing.
Uninvited es un juego que si se juega por primera vez, nos llevará muchas horas completarlo. No en vano el juego ofrece tres casillas para guardar la partida mediante batería. Si sabes todos los secretos y el camino correcto en el laberinto, te llevará entre una hora y hora y cuarto concluirlo más o menos, pero es un juego al que querrás volver de vez en cuando. Otra de las cosas interesantes de Uninvited es tratar de ver todas las formas en las que el protagonista puede morir. La conclusión, es que Uninvited es un grandísimo juego dentro de su género, que nos hará pasar un buen rato y no decepcionará. Eso sí, no esta a la altura de Maniac Mansion.
Unintived ist ein klasse Adventure, das sich nicht vor der Genre-Konkurrenz aus gleichem Hause zu verstecken braucht. Wer bislang nichts mit dem Genre anfangen konnte, bei dem wird auch das Grusel-Abenteuer nichts daran ändern. Alle anderen Adventure-Fans werden aber mit Uninvited vergnügliche Stunden verbringen können. Und wer die Vorgänger bereits kannte, darf sich zudem auf einige kleine Anspielungen freuen.
Kemco/Seika continues it's successful series of first-person perspective adventures with this visit through a mysterious and danger-filled mansion. Like Shadowgate, there are many elements of magic and other-worldly events in this story.
This is the type of game that requires either a guide
or literally trying every possible solution until you stumble upon
the answer. While the core is fine, there’s little to make this game
stand out amongst others in the genre – the plot is thin, the setting
has little personality, and the difficulty can be unfair at times. All
in all, a tepid entry.
The problem is that, while the quest is O.K., the graphics and interaction just don't cut it. Too complex for its own good.
More than two decades after release, horror buffs might still be willing to brave its deadly perils, but everyone else will find Uninvited all too uninviting.
If the title reminds of you an old PC game made back in '86 by ICOM... well that's probably because this is the very same game. Uninvited is essentially a text-based adventure, polished up with some basic graphics and a point-and-click interface. If you don't like such games, or reading, the door is over there. If you're otherwise interested, read on, though with caution.
