Every aspect of the game feels minutely considered, like the fact that the skulls of victims you’ve killed remain in the level and will be kicked around as you pass by or the way still-alive characters shake and glance around nervously once they’re aware of your presence. The inclusion of hints, full solutions, and level skips; tons of achievements and leaderboards; and optional gore sliders to reduce the blood and carnage indicate Blue Wizard was truly thinking of all their players when they created this game. It worked: this Valentine’s Day, we’ve given our heart to Slayaway Camp.

Aside from that, Slayaway Camp has everything gamers could want and more; proper use of retro formatting, amazing humour, good music, good voice acting, gory animations and buffet of variety. For slasher film fans that love a good jab at those movies, this is the best $9.99 you’ll spend this year on Steam.

Slayaway Camp isn’t a large nor an expansive experience – but it doesn’t want to be. It wants to be a simple puzzle game that through evolving mechanics becomes a difficult and satisfying experience. It revels in both the ludicrous and outlandishly fun things that come from its original genre while making fun of its stupidities. It won’t be for everyone but for those who enjoy basic puzzling at its best, Slayaway Camp is a killer.

Overall, Slayaway Camp hits the mark when it comes to being an homage to classic slasher films. It is cheesy, filled with murder and crazy kills, and doesn’t take itself too seriously. While the puzzles can be challenging early on and easy towards the end, they are still fulfilling to complete and that sense of accomplishment doesn’t go away at any point. While it would’ve been nice to see some additional kills and hear some additional lines of dialogue from the narrator, it still works for what it is. Slayaway Camp is one of the best homages to classic slasher films and should be an easy buy for any horror buff looking to pass the time.
Hardcore Gamer Magazine (Oct 27, 2016)
Slayaway Camp is a brilliant and funny block-sliding puzzle game that’s drenched in good-humored gore. The screams of the teenagers, police, office workers, beach bathers and other victims punctuates each kill as you unravel the specific set of moves necessary to complete each level. The main game’s ten movies have an initial set of regular levels, harder deleted scenes and a set of levels that use all the unlocked mechanics once you’ve beaten the game, for about 200 puzzles total. There’s a lot of clever content in Slayaway Camp‘s massive collection of puzzles, and its smart level design is equally matched by a dark but affectionate slasher-flick tribute that gives the game its unique and brutally cute identity.

Whether you’re a horror fan or not, I highly recommend Slayaway Camp. Although the game could use a bit of polish around its UI framework, a ton of thought was put into countless popular culture references and cubed graphics. If you’re looking for a gorefest though, this isn’t the place to find one. Slayaway Camp is really just a simple puzzle game with a great theme, so stay away unless you enjoy puzzle games to some degree. Essentially, being a puzzle fan is more important than being a horror fan when it comes to this title.
