If there is one thing Amanda the Adventurer teaches us, it’s this: don’t ever play old video tapes should you find in one your dead aunt’s attic! That’s how everything starts in this game. And although it seems like an innocent children’s show at the beginning, you will soon realize you’re up to your ears in trouble!
So, picture this: you’re rummaging around in your attic, looking for some old junk to sell on eBay or something, when you stumble upon an old VHS tape with a label that reads “Amanda’s Adventure Show.” Intrigued, you pop it into your old video recorder and suddenly you’re transported into a creepy world of jump scares and mind-bending puzzles. Not what you expected from a retro kids show!
Amanda herself appears on screen, all chipper and innocent, but you can just feel that something’s not quite right. Like the way she grabs that butcher’s knife, allegedly to chop up plastic apples, but you see a rather scary glint in her eyes and start doubting whether the knife is actually plastic too. And start to feel really worried for that cute wooly ship that’s always around her! Just wait, Woolie is kind of a little maniac in a ship’s skin as well!
So, as you progress through the game, Amanda will task you with solving all sorts of puzzles, from simple number sequences to more complex riddles that require you to scour the room for hidden clues. But it’s not all fun and games, oh no. The atmosphere is so intense that you’ll be on edge the whole time, expecting something to jump out at you at any moment. And make no mistake, it does! The jump scares are unexpected and heart-stopping, and they keep you on your toes the whole time.
And let’s not forget about the creepy visual and sound effects that come as part of watching an old glitched tape, but feel more and more ominous as you move through the episodes. Every time you pass another quest you gain access to a new tape. And there are lots of them to go through! It’s like something straight out of a horror movie, and it just adds to the sense of mounting paranoia that you feel throughout the game.
Overall, Amanda the Adventurer is an experience like no other. It’s the perfect game for horror fans who love a good puzzle challenge. But be warned: once you start playing, you won’t be able to stop until you’ve uncovered all the secrets of Amanda’s world!
