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 performed 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.
