Review Disillusions Manga Horror Pro
A terrifying, plot driven, interactive horror story

Interesting graphics, exciting plot, two-finger controls
Too easy, bores you really quickly, low quality animation
Disillusions Manga Horror Pro for Android is an unusual escape the room sort of game with a horrifying twist. Explore creepy locales in search of clues to make heads or tails of what's going on. This one is crude and simplistic, but is also genuinely frightening.
Disillusions Manga Horror Pro displays in landscape to deliver a text driven plot and static visuals with simple motion tracking. As the story goes, you find yourself in a desolate locale in the dead of night, you know, the kind of place where people get axed to death in the shadows. You were actually invited here by a friend who wanted to explore an alleged haunted house, only your friend stood you up and is nowhere to be found. So you do the only logical thing and begin exploring the house and immediate surroundings on your own. Just tap on various objects to learn more about them and drive the plot forward. I won't offer any spoilers here, cuz it's more fun if you scare the living daylights out of yourself by actually playing it.
The controls use two bloodied crucifixes, one on the lower left for movement, and another on the lower right for pan and scan views of the locale. The graphics are dark, dramatically lit, and yes, just still images. But the details are nice and effectively made my skin crawl. The animation is just motion tracking on still images, with accompanying read along text. The sounds feature spoken word narration, in Japanese, I think. They also feature a truly demented soundtrack
Disillusions Manga Horror Pro is very crude and rudimentary, yet somehow, I think it will be a big hit.
