Secret Neighbor – Neighbor Gets New Enemies

July 01, 2020

Secret Neighbor is a multiplayer action-horror game by a Russian indie developer Dynamic Pixels and tinyBuild. It’s also a spin-off of the popular Hello Neighbor franchise. In the game, you can play several new character types, including Mr. Peterson himself! Now all the fun and fear are generated by players right during the matches. 

Plot 8/10

Unlike the previous games in the franchise, Secret Neighbor isn’t a story-driven game. Of course, it has a small introduction, but it mainly describes the new characters to let you understand what you can do. There are several new character classes that are endowed with different traits and skills. All of them are split between team members in order to make each player in the team almost indispensable. While one child can discover the locations of the keys, the other one has special abilities to take the team towards the goal. For example, an engineer can craft various helpful items, such as torches, which are so important for gameplay. The roles in each match are distributed, so you can be sure that there won’t be 2 same players in your session.

The only thing that you cannot predict is who will be the Neighbor. This role is always assigned randomly, so anyone in your team can play this monster. But what is scary about it? The scary thing is that the Neighbor can activate his mysterious machines to use disguise and look like simple objects or even your team members. 

Controls 10/10

Secret Neighbor control scheme is designed for quick online interactions. All the actions are easily accessible independently from the input type you choose. The game is available for Xbox One and PC, so you can play it conveniently using your controller. However, the keyboard input offers more flexibility as you can reassign all buttons to match your style. 

Design 10/10

The latest version of Secret Neighbor is powered by the same engine as the original game, so you can expect the same quality on both Xbox One and PC. The engine is perfectly optimized for multiplayer, so you will be pleased by smoothness even if you are a fan of fast-paced FPS. The overall style of the game is quite cartoonish and a bit surrealistic, which is just great. 

In-Game Purchases

Both Xbox and PC versions of Secret Neighbor cost $19.99. Alternatively, you can get the game via Xbox Game Pass for free, if you’re lucky enough to catch it on time. I think this price is quite too high, but the amount of pure gameplay you receive is really large. 

Summary

I recommend Secret Neighbor to fans of online party games. It’s an awesome opportunity to team up with your friends, enjoy thrilling mafia-like gameplay, and scare each other in a variety of ways. This game unites all the best features of the original game with a load of brand new multiplayer features.
