Secret Neighbor is the multiplayer spin-off of the Hello Neighbor horror game. It  features a bunch of kids who need to escape from the clutches of the mustached villain. Or… you can play as the Neighbor himself.

Gotta Catch ‘Em All

You can join two sides — one is the bunch of children. Their goal is to get to the vault of the house before the time is up. But as usual, it is easier said than done.

To unlock the basement, your team needs to collect all the keys — 6 in total. They are scattered throughout the creepy house. And while your gang is busy searching, Neighbor will do anything to snatch you all.

Luckily you have some perks. First, there’s a class system. Each kid has a unique talent that will help you progress. Like, Inventor can craft a toy rifle, Brave can escape from the Neighbor’s paws and Detective can find the keys faster.

Even if Neighbor kidnaps all of your teammates, you still can win. You just need to get inside the basement before the clock stops ticking and your little camaradas will be rescued.

Scary Clown is on the Loose

In this game Neighbor has three personas. The first incarnation is a classic antagonist  with a massive chin and circus-like mustache. The other is more terrifying as it’s a creepy clown obviously inspired by King’s novels.

Neighbor has some handy talents. He can spy on the children non-stop and lay a trap that stunts a kid and makes him/her an easy target.

The best Neighbor’s talent is Disguise. It allows him to turn either into an abducted child or one of the objects in the house: floor lamp, plant or chair. While Rage makes him shortly invincible after he gets 5 hits in a row.

As the Clown, he can also throw a smoke bomb to limit kids’ visibility and use Confusion to suppress their will to resist for a moment. And as the entire house with every dark corner is your battlefield, you can improvise diabolical tactics at snatching these meddling kids.

And recently they added a Butcher skin. One of the perks you get is a fancy meet hook that never misses a nearby rascal.

He is Right Behind

If you love Hello Neighbor, its multiplayer version will captivate you. It has the classic burtonesque aesthetics and the original dark-n-goofy vibe that sends shivers down your spine, but also provides a few giggles. And of course, there’s a ton of adrenaline.

Pros:
  • Nice Halloween vibe
  • Character class system
  • Huge leeway for tactics
Cons:
  • Just one map
  • No unlockable extra goodies
