hite Day comes in the wake of the usual Korean horror films with slowness of action and cheap drama with strange characters, like a nervous detective kinonovell ” Howl “, connecting urban legends and teenage angst in the history of an ordinary school, where the world of spirits, and live separated very fine line.
In the center of events White Day: A Labyrinth the Named School – shy student Chi-Ming Lee, dreaming on “White Day” give a girl that he liked for a long time, a special gift. But the pursuit of beauty in the classrooms of the institution turns into a nightmarish journey through the corridors of the school terrible labyrinth, where there is room for an angry ghost or dark demon in every room.
Exploring space and solving simple puzzles, Chi-Ming sinking deeper into the sticky morass of the underworld, trying to leave the walls of the school as soon as possible.
As it opened in the classic adventures, you have to consistently look for clues, discovering new room and searching for magical gems that can give access to the following sections of the plot. The game is made in the first person, which is unusual for eastern horror and raises the level of immersion.
Perhaps, White Day: A Labyrinth the Named School would be a great adventure, if not for the heavy cart, inherited from the original sixteen-year-old. Although a remake removed a huge number of inconsistencies and unnecessary manipulation of the stock, has experienced change of engine and lift charts, severe archaism and irritating solutions remained in place.
First and foremost this is a crazy school caretaker with a baseball bat, chase you through the corridors of the institution and forces hiding in the toilet stall. The original suspense persecution is quickly replaced by irritation due to technical defects. Caretaker long stand still, stuck in the openings and is teleported by the will of the creators in any possible time. Taking into account the preservation of the system to re-pass the same section would not be desirable for several times. Of course, with a decrease in the level of difficulty you can foresee his appearance with the help of special icons, but in this case you lose the warm meeting with the ghosts of 20, which makes the game considerably poorer.
The second point – a section near the end of the game, where you are forced to navigate a dangerous swimming pool by means of dowsing rods. More pointless and annoying puzzles I have not seen for several years.
Other disadvantages, such as failure of scripts and conventions when solving puzzles, give the project a romantic retro-raid.
Already mentioned above save the system refers to the classic of Resident Evil , only instead of ink ribbon you are offered to take advantage of one-time tokens on a blackboard. Although the number of markers is limited, you will not be disappointed.
Returning to puzzles, it is worth noting that most of them are logical. If you carefully read the numerous notes and explore the objects in your inventory, you will not find too difficult to approach the boss. Fear of the alarm will let you use the fire alarm, and cursed the tree easily fall to spray with lacquer and reagents.
ROI Games have spent a lot of time and effort to work on the remake. All video story has been updated, smart environment, and the game itself is noticeably optimized. Moreover, the PS4 -version remake thanks to the high resolution and clearer textures look better than the iteration of the smartphone, released a little earlier.
