Howlville : The Dark Past - Portal to confusion!


This will probably be one of my shortest game reviews ever made in this blog, the notion that this game was so short and so boring and the story line was very simple. There....The end. What?I told you it was going to be a short review!

Okay, it wasn't going to be that short!Let's just get serious shall we? So the story begins with a runaway ambulance, Driving this ambulance is a mental patient named Rachel who is determined to find her father who vanished due to an ill fated experiment years ago. So she heads of to Howlville, where her father was last seen.

While everyone thinks she is absolutely crazy, she is the only one who believes he father was a part of a deadly experiment which involves creatures coming out of a different portal  destroying the entire city f Howlville, funny that a strange event like that would be so well known yet it remains a secret. Anyways, she heads over to Howlville and encounters not only the evil scientist but also this massive, huge, gigantic monster that is out to get her.....seriously?How did people miss this?

Of course as the main character of the story, you are not going to give up just because of some big scary monster and pursue onto finding out what's going on and where the heck is daddy dearest. But that's what makes the whole game off loop, every single cut scene throughout the game did not shed much light on the monster attack incident, every single cut scene was just about where she headed off next in her mission, it wasn't exciting and it also really did not make anything clear as to why after all these years the monsters and the scientists decide to revolt against the world. The ending also made me go..."what the...?huhh??okay then....no wait huhhh???"

I guess the only good thing about the game was that it was not at all difficult to play, easy and simple and quite systematic. Apart from that well, there was nothing much to look forward from this game.
One thing is for sure, if there was ever going to be a sequel to this game, you can count me out from playing it!
And there goes my review, told you it would be short! :P

Well then that's all for today....ooo...working on a new art, for the very first time, I am drawing a guy!I am horrible at drawing men so fingers crossed that this will come out okay. ^.^ C'ya guys soon!!^.^



Game rating : * 1 (I-feel-so-sorry) star out of 5!
