Playdead's INSIDEOfficial Waldo Score 9.1/10

9.1out of 10
Official Waldo Review

Playdead's Inside is a well polished masterpiece. This game set the bar for originality and creativeness and was so much fun to interact with and play. The atmosphere from the graphics to the sound effects were just absolutely perfect. I could feel my heart racing when the dogs were chasing me and the puzzles were challenging but easy to figure out at the same time. This game does an amazing job of telling you nothing: not what's going on or how to play, yet like the boy in the game, you figure it all out along the way. Great Job!

This game was given a score of 9.1/10 which is good. Anything above a 5.0 is considered a great game. Below is a breakdown of the elements that were factored into the rating for this game. Even though Waldo's reviews are based on personal opinion, each game's rating follows a strict confidential rubric system for fairness.

User Interface Design (UI)
User interface is flawless.
User Experience Design (UX)
There was no information when this game was loaded. No instructions, no buttons, but somehow it was so intuitive that I knew how to play, how to find the menu, how to skip ahead without a single word telling me how to do it.
Game Design
Game design is flawless.
Learning Curve
Game required no tutorials or instructions to play.
Difficulty Progression
Difficulty progression was smooth yet challenging.
Playtime Longevity
It is a game that you will want to play for a week, but nothing more.
Sound Design
There is no music in this game, but that's fine. The sound effects create the ambiance for the scene which is enough to set the mood.
Fun
This game is more like an interactive movie than a game. You want to keep playing to see what happens next, but most of the game is spent just moving to the right of the screen.
Concept Originality
Nothing like this has ever existed. Full creativity from top to bottom.
Post Production
Post production contains a well written description, screenshots, video and icon design.
