"Scary in more ways then one..."
Guru Undead_terror here to talk about Slender man blocks, a minecraft version of the popular Slender man 8 pages game, but does it live to be scary has the original? let's find out!
So we start right into the gameplay, the is no menu or options, it says "Powered by unity" and there you go..."find the 8 pages". So if you played the original game you will know that you have to explore the wilderness at night and trying to find eight pages to beat the game while trying to avoid the evil Slender man that wants to kill you and that's what this game does!
When it comes to control in this game there is little to none, all you need is one finger and hold it on the screen, when holding the screen your character moves forward, you can slide you finger around to look around and that is it, you collect pages by walking near them, you can't run, can't turn your flash light off, when trying to do a 360 turn you will still be moving forward. There is no music in the game besides sound effects from the original Slender man games, you only have one map to roam in the game that feels random and uninspired.
The effort put in the game is low, you are roaming around in a block land with poor art that don't seem scary at all ( I know it's minecraft but it's also a Slender man game), the sky gets distorted when you look at a angle or turns completely dark, the flash light messes up in some places, you got a poor looking Slender man with barely any detail, and trying to find blank pieces of paper in a poorly designed map, all there is in the game to freak you out is the sound effects when Slender man is near you, what is going on with the sky and why is the game so poorly made!
I beaten the game on my first try, the game is easy but hard when trying to keep your attention, all you have to do is walk around looking for the pages without looking back behind you, but there is one place where a page is that could get you trapped by Slender man but all you would have to do is look the other way and walk on, if you get caught by Slender man you will die, if you win you will get congratulated and then get killed by Slender man, then you can play the game again...same map, same difficulty.
So at the end of the day, the game lacks content, is boring, has no replay value, the game could of been improved a lot more and I don't recommend the game at all unless it was free but then again it will just take up memory.
