Horror adventures in first person are not very common and when a game like Scratches comes it's difficult not to try it. Here you are going to find a terrifying atmosphere and an interesting story. While the puzzles could have been better balanced the rest of the game has a very good quality. For the price this game has it's totally worth it, and even more if you catch it on discount.

Scratches is horror at its best - no cheap thrills, just an incredibly oppressive atmosphere that slowly feeds your fear using your own imagination. Despite somewhat muddy 2D images, as you unravel the story one diary page at a time, the only way you will not feel all alone in a dark abandoned mansion cut off from civilization is if you play with the lights on. The howling wind outside and the dead quiet of the living room with just an old grandfather clock ticking away will keep you on the edge of your seat… and then you will hear the scratches.
If you like Point and Click, give this a try.simpkinscm | May 21, 2013 | See all simpkinscm's reviews »
If you enjoy point and click adventures you should definitely give this game a try. The puzzles are intuitive and the atmosphere is awesome. The locations you find yourself are varied, but still feel that they are tied together. Playing through, you really feel like you need to figure out what is going on. My one complaint is that this game has not aged well at all. And, no spoilers, but the end of the game invoke less horror and more humor, due to the dated graphics. I would recommend anyone who enjoys this genre of game to definitely give this game a try.

This game is a pretty interesting and has well done horror elements. The voice acting is done decently and you get a good value for the price. I got this in a previous indie bundle and I can tell you that it was worth it for sure.
The puzzles can be a little difficult, so you may need to look at a walkthrough, if you can't figure them out. This is a classic point and click adventure that really scared the hell out of me.
If you are into horror adventure games, give this one a shot.
