Despite having an excellent aesthetic and really well put together visuals, I unfortunately cannot recommend Scare at all, due to the extremely unpleasant nature of the gameplay. Some parts of it are passable, although in every stage there is little fear to be gained, as any scary sequence is broken up with annoyingly difficult generic needle, and boring flying spike traps. The places where the traps make an effort to follow the theming, i.e. monsters coming out of the walls, are cool, but 2/3 traps are just flying spikes or the like. Every stage had at least one, but often several screens that were awful to play, with segments that were way too precise (eye clock thing in the top left) or completely unintuitive (the multiple occasions where you suddenly need to use the mouse). The House stage, despite having incredible visuals and some legitimately creepy stuff, is abysmal to play, with every screen having unpleasant platforming and nonsense solutions to obstacles, as well as lots of needless downtime. The real lowpoint of the game is the bosses, which range from bad to worse. Some of them could be passed off as a generic and boring but acceptable fight. However the bottom two bosses were some of the least enjoyable fights I've played in a while. With a lot of inscrutable patterns and shitty rng, they're just awful grindfests. Additionally, there are a number of ear destroying sounds, such as a boss that starts every single attempt with an ear splitting screech. The House Girl boss was significantly harder than the rest, and also the least fun.

Ultimately, this game should not be played. It's unfortunate, because it looks so good, but the game design is very very bad.

Some of the worst gameplay I've ever seen in a fangame, the atmosphere is okay and that's really the only positive thing about the game, the platforming is boring and uninteresting, the traps are annoying and at times pointlessly cryptic, the bosses range from boring to terrible, there's very clearly potential here and the game does a pretty good job at adhering to it's theme for each stage, but there were very few enjoyable moments, most of the game just felt miserable and it really doesn't help that this game has some of the worst audio balance I've ever seen. I would not recommend this game under any circumstance.

This is an interesting horror-themed fangame based off four creepy games; here is some questionable boss and stage design choices though.
Here is a solution for puzzle in bottom-left warp: sceletons from left to right 42351

Awful in ways that are purely frustrating. There’s nothing really here other than an occasional moment of aesthetic interest. The platforming is generic and terrible, filled to the brim with weird and awful traps with obtuse solutions. The bosses are either a little unfair or a series of instagibs (or both) and overall I hated pretty much every moment. Made me so upset.

Horror-themed adventure game. Lots of annoying sections, trap spam, and cryptic solutions make it difficult to recommend.
