Description

When someone dies with a powerful grudge, a curse is born. A series of Ju-On horror movies all by the same director have been popular since 2000 first in Japan and then remade in Hollywood first in 2004 as The Grudge. This is a "haunted house simulator" adventure game where Erika Yamada comes into contact with a curse when looking for her dog in an abandoned warehouse. Then when she returns home, all her family members who she meets also become cursed. You play as each in first-person view encountering their own challenging episode.

The locations vary from a rundown factory to an empty hospital, an apartment building, a mannequin factory, and the cursed house from the movie. The game is basically an interactive horror movie which tries to scare you as you explore the locations and attempt to survive against the supernatural forces. The Wii remote controls the player's flashlight and movement through the game. If the player flinches at scare moments with the remote, their score goes down. A person with a second remote can also trigger scary events for the main player. The player must keep moving while finding keys to open doors and also find batteries to replenish the flashlight or else you will be attacked and die.
