Worth the Grind: Goosebumps

I had previously published a few of these and then removed them, they are the same as when they were first up.

Goosebumps is a point-and-click adventure game that was released with the movie from that year. It follows the same premise, the creatures from the books are out in the real world, but as more of a prequel of sorts to the movie (not exactly but the closest I can think of).

Yes, it is worth the grind!

Okay with a little less enthusiasm. This game is filled with lots of references and lore from the Goosebump universe and is also a fairly easy game to play. There are a few parts that can be a tad tricky, but honestly, it is designed for kids so shouldn’t present too much of a challenge. There are a few achievements that will require some grinding, such as picking up every item that you can and having a guide will help.

For the most part, though the achievements are straightforward and the game has a rather low completion average time. It was also actually pretty fun for me to play. It hit a lot of nostalgia notes for me, doing Goosebumps point and click was a smart choice for that 90s feel.

There is some frustration with a few achievements that require luck or keeping a good list to track what you have gotten, what you need to get, but nothing too much.

So if you like Goosebumps and like point-and-click games it is an easy enjoyable completion. If you do not it may actually end up being more annoying than it is worth especially with the price averaging $15. I would say look for it on sale and good luck!
