Review Rush was kindly supplied with a review code.
Clea’s story is simple, at least to start with. Mum and Dad have been experimenting on Chaos Servants. They have been let loose, and Clea and her brother must escape the Whitlock Mansion.
However, while playing Clea, more of the family history and story can be uncovered with finding memory orbs. If you are brave enough.
Clea is a hide and seek style horror game. Where the main character cant fight the enemies but in stead has to hide from them to move on.
The gameplay is both loads of fun but also stress inducing. Not for any fault of the game, but me being me. The game revolves around Clea, moving from room to room and hiding from the Chaos Monsters (CM).
The tension is outstanding hearing the CM walking in the hall, knowing that you could die if you can’t hide. If a CM sees Clea it will chase you till it gets you and it’s game over. For me hiding from the CM’s can get frustrating, I want to carry on but I have to wait till the footsteps to disappear. Patience is key in Clea.
Graphically Clea is fairly simple, more so the backgrounds. In fact, the brick style back grounds looks weird to me and made me feel dizzy to start with. However, the characters made up for this. I loved the art design of the 2D doll style models. They looked superb, maybe a wee bit more animation was needed, but I like it.
I really enjoyed my time with Clea InvertMouse did an outstanding job at keeping the tension high, while keeping things simple. Looking for a game that will get the heart pumping? Clea will do just that.
