An atmospheric horror game with semi-open world. You can really feel the atmosphere of loneliness. The further the better, but everything is ruined by a strange and unbalanced fight with the final boss.

What a glorious game!
I got this game because of it’s relevance to history and politics…
I was shocked to find out this game is not only an interesting alternative history game,but its surprisingly stunning pixel art, great dialogue, a playable reskin mode with Trump and Putin, and weapons, make up a great game full of action and stealth. This game has trading cards and a load of achievements which are easily earned if you were to put extra time into this game. Don’t let the two-player playstyle discourage you. This game makes it run very smooth. Just play it for yourself, and you’ll see. Honestly I just want to go on and on about all the positives, but I can’t. It’d take too long. So let me leave you with this.

This game is beautiful, I really enjoy it. 10/10
I don’t like Dancing Penguins, I don’t like Jet packs or joy rides and I certainly don’t see the sense on Ninjas cutting up fruit like a retarded imbecile. One could go clone some sharks and make a race game, kinda rip off existing designs and claim innovation.
If your into that kind of thing, great don’t play this game. You probably won’t like it as it takes concepts and elements of political, social issues that concern our world today, not to mention situations that influence our existence as a species and ties them all together in a cocktail of entertainment.

Don’t. Just don’t. Especially the season pass!
If there’s a better example of wasted potential than this game, I don’t wanna know. From the fact that there are – apparently – six episodes planned, with the second being the last to be released five years on, to the seedy ’80s and conspiracy-theories setting being used only rather superficially, this game could – nay, should! – be so much better. Sure, everything the devs could think of was put into a bucket and the bucket spilt over a framework one could call a game, but coherent this is not.
American Theft 80s
It’s the 80s, so put on your nostalgia glasses (even if you weren’t there)!
From the creators of Thief Simulator.
Every house, bank, shop and museum can be robbed with the right tools, you just have to know how to do it.
Earn your way up in a county full of corruption and crime while discovering what the residents are hiding.
That’s right, if you see a house, bank or a shop you can get inside, but learn about the tenants first. You don’t want to get caught.
Remember VHS, cassette players and CRT TVs? No? Well now you can get to know them. Tenants will surely share them with you, albeit not knowingly.
Earn cash and reputation in the underground world filled with corruption and crime.
Sometimes the only thing you can do is get in the car and drive as fast as possible. But be careful, the cops are not playing around and will chase after you.
Make sure to bribe the police to avoid being wanted.
There are many classic styled minigames available. Beat the highscores and get achievements for it!

This game can be a really great experience and I highly recommend it, with just one big caveat.
You basically get the snoop around as a detective in some very well-crafted environments with lots of details, where it’s actually quite a challenge to figure out what’s going on and find what you are looking for, adding to the fact that you have limited time really works well to give you the sense of realism that is lacking in so many stealth games - and this is where the game excels. It’s also quite an interesting storyline with some interesting characters and interactions.
I wish I could give this game a positive review, but… I can’t. Other reviews go into a fair amount of depth about the technical issues, so I won’t discuss them here – I, personally, only ran into a single bug (other actors walking through gates that wipe floppy disks causing a floppy disk in my inventory to wipe, which the developers have plans to fix), but that’s not my issue with this game.
The reason for my negative review is that this game tries very hard to tell a story, but the gameplay mechanics undermine the story at every turn. You play the role of an investigative reporter who, for unknown reasons, has decided (been assigned?) to investigate a bombing (kinda?) at a local, high profile, technology firm. For some reason, you start with no knowledge at all of what this firm does – initial impressions are that they are a PR firm advocating for the passage of “The Union Act”, but later revelations reveal that this is incorrect (I think?). One would think that this sort of background information would be easily accessible (perhaps in the handy briefcase), but…
Something Evil has arrived in the video store…
Abominations once confined to video store cassettes have escaped the tape and transformed into deadly reality. Experience pulse-pounding 4v1 combat amidst neon-soaked cinematic labyrinths where power shifts unpredictably between Good and Evil, but always ends in a fight-to-the-death climax fit for the silver screen.
Monsters follow a script that calls not only for death, but total domination. Be you the Werewolf– brutal and swift, or the Dollmaster– creeping and conniving, you are designed to feast on fear, terrorizing your teenage prey relentlessly.
Teens scramble to flip the script with weapons fueled by ancient Stigma– Burn, Shock, Curse, and Purify– that extinguish Evil. Blast monsters with a faceful of Flame and Fury, dish out a killer jolt from your Raygun or RC Flyer, swing Cursed Swords and cast curses, and harness the glory of a Holy Slingshot or Cross.
VHS bleeds 80s horror, and if you’re not careful, you will too.
Fight Back or Die
The monsters of VHS are a tribute to over the top 80s horror where anything goes. From a classic Werewolf to the sinister Dollmaster, fight as a growing roster of grotesque, ferocious, and lethal creatures. As a Teen, craft and master a variety of single use and limited fuel weaponry for a shot at turning the tables on the monster. There is no escape, so you must fight to survive.
Each level is hand-crafted and designed for the ultimate cinematic showdown. Explore classic and fantastical cinematic locales, from decrepit hotels to top-secret research facilities.
Each character has a skill tree full of unique perks and custom cosmetics along their personal path to becoming the ultimate hero or villain.
Showcase your own style from head to toe in colorful costumes and vivid variants that celebrate the freedom of the 80’s video era. Become the ultimate Video Horror Society fan as you collect an entire shelf of movies full of challenges that reveal hidden lore and reward themed cosmetics.

VHS is already yours to enjoy, so hop in!

Ok, I liked this game, might even speedrun it, but I have to give it a negative review because it’s exactly as I feared: it’s just the demo but double length.
For the price point it just ends too soon and feels like it doesn’t explore its concept enough. Also considering this was in the haunted ps1 disc this year, if you’re reading this, you’ve probably played the demo, which means you’ve experienced the best this game really has to offer already and you don’t need to buy it. You get the blink power in that demo and then it ends soon after.
Really fun stealth game!
As a massive Splinter Cell (Chaos Theory) fan, this scratched that itch.
It’s super cheap, but it is rather short (beat it in a little over 3hours), however I think with the price, and just how fun and well designed The Chameleon is, it was definitely worth the price. I think I might even feel like replaying this at some point.
Liked the story, if there ever were a DLC expansion, or just a sequel, I’d buy it.
The atmosphere, visual style, modern effects complementing the retro style, just feels great. There’s neat dynamic lighting, a cool dithering effect on high pixelation, lots of moody coloured lighting, details all around, notes to read to enhance the setting, charming humorous touches.
