Slayaway Camp is a brilliant puzzler with a simple aim – murder. You’re playing a masked villain who’s out to butcher as many unsuspecting humans as you can. You need to plot your attacks, move around the levels and kill without getting caught.
It’s a really simple idea but the game is stuffed full of wonderful little touches that make it memorable. The VHS styling for one thing really click, and if you’re a fan of the slasher genre you’re definitely going to find something to love here.
Things definitely aren’t as dark as they sound, though. There’s no grit here, just darkly humorous slaughtering that’s going to put a big smile on your face. Solving every one of the 140 plus puzzles is going to take you a while, but you’re going to enjoy every second of it.
We’ve embedded a trailer below so you can get some idea of what to expect from the game. And because we really like the trailer and wanted to watch it again.
Looks pretty good, right? There’s a glee to Slayaway Camp that makes it pretty darn compulsive. And right now you can pick up the game for the ridiculously low price of 99c. That’s a mega bargain and no mistake.
