Summary: Haunted House won’t be the scariest game you play all year, but it is a fun little game that captures the spirit of the original Atari 2600 classic, and it’s a breath of fresh air to see an all-ages survival horror game. The controls are tight, the engine is solid, co-op mode is just as fun as single player, the story is surprisingly well told and best of all, it is a well made budget game with a MSRP of only $19.99.
Spooky but not too scary mystery is set in the dark.

Summary: Parents need to know that Haunted House is an action/strategy game set mostly in the dark. When your character doesn't have a light on, all you see of him is his eyes. Ghosts and monsters constantly appear out of the shadows to startle you -- and then chase you. These supernatural creatures are not designed to look truly menacing, but they do get scarier-looking as the game progresses. In the world of horror video games, though, this is about as tame as you get.
