Goosebumps The Game describes the various death scenes with words. Some of the images in Goosebumps The Game can give kids nightmares. Wayforward took an interesting gamble with this franchise. I did not expect Goosebumps The Game to be this kind of a point and click adventure. Surprisingly it works for Goosebumps The Game. At least in my opinion.

It’s a shame as the game’s overall presentation is likeable, the chosen art style seemingly aiming the replicate that used for the illustrations on the series’ many covers. That isn’t matched by the soundtrack, which is always fairly low key with sound effects thrown in whenever you trigger an interaction.

I would like to say I personally wasn’t a fan of Goosebumps: The Game. Admittedly it may have been slightly more enjoyable using a mouse; I will be solemnly unbias in my score being that it wasn’t exactly my cup of tea. Though it had more dialogue than adventure, sometimes unclear references, and a painstakingly anti-climatic story, it did have it’s few moments. It was very lighthearted and had many cute nods to R.L. Stein and his horror empire. If you’re a Goosebumps mega fan or a point and click pioneer you might actually get some enjoyment out of Goosebumps: The Game. If you’re not a Goosebumps superfan, or find point and clicks tedious this is a hard pass.
Nintendo Life (Feb 15, 2016)
Perhaps the biggest compliment we can pay Goosebumps: The Game is that it feels like playing through one of the various "choose your own" adventure books that the series produced on the side when it was in its pomp. It's half visual novel, half point and click adventure, taking some of the best and worst elements of both and mixing them together until monstrously half-baked. Fun visuals and some neat callbacks will keep some fans intrigued, but a weak story haunted by groan-worthy puzzles makes this too directionless and underwhelming to fully recommend.
