Clock Tower (1997)
Developer: Human Entertainment
Platform: PlayStation
Purchase Date: 1997

Bad idea.

Clock Tower is unique because of its point-and-click interface and its run-and-hide mechanics. You get to play as multiple characters who are being hunted down by a lunatic known as "Scissorman" who is more than happy to snip you where it hurts the most using an overgrown pair of garden shears. You can't really fight the maniac... Instead, you are required to run away from him while trying to find a way to escape your current location. There are quite a lot of places where you can hide too while Scissorman is looking for you. The intermissions that occur during the daytime contain lengthy conversations with a relaxed pace but whenever the night time arrives, get ready for your chilling role as a serial killer's potential victim.

LIBRARY STATUS: 4 out of 5
