Review Dim Light

Brandon Girod
Good atmosphere, excellent premise
Controls are awkward, the darkness is a bit too limiting
Dim Light for Android is the very first “horror” game that I think I’ve played on a mobile device. And it’s probably one of the only horror games I’ve played period. I’m kind of a baby when it comes to stuff like that. Fortunately, the game is way more tense than it is scary. In fact, I’d argue that the game isn’t really that scary at all.
What makes this game so tense and potentially spooky is the fact that everything is so dimly lit - go figure. And by dimly lit, I mean you can’t see anything. Even the things illuminated by your flashlight are only marginally visible.
I’m not really sure what’s going on in the story this game tries to tell because everything is mention really vaguely. Some sort of darkness has creeped up on the world. Supposedly it’s come unnoticed and you’re the only one who seems to care. You’re trapped in a hospital when suddenly it goes completely dark and you begin to notice these “things” creep around eating other people. Naturally, you decide it’s time to leave.
So you’re moving room to room as you try and avoid detection from these things. The difficulty stems from the fact that you really can’t see anything. You have no idea how levels are laid out because you can’t see them, and you also kind of don’t want to see them because you just want to make a beeline straight to the exit. Which you have to find with your nearly useless flashlight.
Dim Light is a fun game that offers a lot of tense moments. I can’t really say it’s scary, though. And that’s coming from a genuine scaredy cat.
