Go To Bed: Survive the Night seems like it would be a silly, casual horror game. You’re just tapping away at shadowy hands and goofy ghosts, and it’s not that hard, is it? Anyone who’s just picked it up on Steam knows that this is just the beginning of a torrent of brutality at the hands of this game – a gauntlet of dark beasts and creeping monstrosities that will have you clicking your mouse as if you were playing Diablo. A simple tap might be all you need to make your nightmares fade, but Touchfight Games LLC have worked hard to make those taps difficult.
Touchfight has made a simple task challenging by giving players several different kinds of enemies to get rid of, and you have to find out how to beat them in real time. Some shadows need multiple taps, others split into groups when clicked, and others blend into the background. It sounds easy on paper, but Touchfight pushes the player to their limit, throwing reams of spooky spirits their way, and you have no choice but to survive until the time limit is up. You’ll earn that creepy voice telling you that you survived…for now.
Go To Bed: Survive the Night has a few modes to add some spice to your ghost-busting lifestyle. Several styles of gauntlet are in the game, each with specific rules on how to beat your enemies, and an endless mode sees how long you can last before a spirit takes your life. Despite the lighthearted visuals, there’s a lot of challenging, streamlined phantom-tapping play here. Combining rage-inducing difficulty and adorable, yet bloodthirsty ghosts, it can create some truly genuine screams from your household this Halloween.
Go To Bed: Survive the Night is available for $4.99 on Steam (with a 33% discount for launch). For more information on the game and Touchfight Games LLC, you can head to the developer’s site or follow them on Facebook, YouTube, and Twitter.
