Artificial intelligence has come into gaming. Most of us have played so many games but have never had that chance of being put up against a character that learns from your moves. This is the concept that drove Hello Neighbor to the forefront. This game comes in as a storyline, keeping you engrossed all the time.
You start off the game as a newly-moved homeowner who has just moved to the suburbs from another city. Just across your fence is a neighbor, who never gets out of the house and who is spooky. This spookiness is what makes you suspect that the neighbor is hiding something in the basement, and you need to discover what it is.
Intruder vs Owner
In this game, you are the intruder (fun, right) and you are up to some mischief. You have to find a way into the basement. There are various ways you can get to the basement, but the bad thing is that the owner has put measures in place to make sure you don’t get the chance to find out the secret in the basement.
This cartoon style is cheerful and set in a neighborhood that doesn’t in the least make you feel there is a secret in the area. You have to match your trickery, cunningness, wit and any other tactic you have to beat the adaptive AI that is waiting for your move.
The “Learning” AI
The AI learns from your moves, and comes up with various strategies to beat them. It checks out your choices and will come up with a strategy depending on what you are planning to do. So, just know that the AI is always a step ahead of you. This is what makes this game more interesting. The good news is that there are various tools and clues that you can use to distract the mustachioed owner of the house and beat the AI.
If you like games that make you terrified while testing your wits to the end, then this is the game you need. It is ideal for the whole family and kid friendly as well. The genuine atmosphere and cartoonish characters make for a complete experience. The mystery is all about knowing what the neighbor is hiding away from you, without getting caught. The different levels give you the chance to explore your ability to solve various puzzles using the available clues.
