Phantasmagoria still is one of my favorite adventure games. Its story feels like a classic horror movie and presents the player a lot of scary moments and uncomfortable scenes. The ambience has a clear sense of gothic and the whole story reminds me of old horror movies, such as the shinning, for example. Roberta Williams did give us a 360 grades twist in terms of adventure, bringing the player, for the first time, more matured contents in all senses.
Gameplay, however, is very simplified and finishing the game reveals itself a very easy thing. Puzzles are also too easy for a mature game such as this, and that constitutes one of the less pleasurable things of Phantasmagoria. If you haven’t played it yet, this 1995 game will still be a nice bet for a great time. Totally recommended.
