My Review of Neighbours From Hell

Although I find playing pranks on people is unnecessarily cruel, whether someone deserves it or not, Woody’s — the protagonist in Neighbours From Hell — enthusiasm was, at times, infectious and watching the neighbour succumb to them, humorous.

The game plays like a point-and-click adventure; Woody starts out each “episode” collecting items in the environment and then using them to “set-up” his pranks.

The “trick” to the game is to set-up the pranks in a sequence to max out the neighbour’s anger, while not being seen by him. In Neighbours From Hell 2: On Vacation, this becomes more complicated, as Woody also has to evade the neighbour’s mother.

The difficulty level of Neighbours From Hell 2: On Vacation is increased in several other ways from Neighbours From Hell 1. The constant change of location — unlike Neighbours From Hell 1, which takes place at the neighbour’s residence only, and many pranks must be preformed just to get some of the items needed to pull off others.

I enjoyed Neighbours From Hell 1, more than Neighbours From Hell 2: On Vacation because it was easier and also because the novelty had started to wear off.
