Call me crazy but when I was a kid I used to play these adventure games obsessively. Each installment in the series has its creepy moments but Parts 1, 3, and 4 are the ones that stick out the most for me. In Part 1, you are subjected to repeated jump scare tactics employed by the game characters at every corner; in particular, the witch in the cave and the troll on the bridge. Part 3 is notable for having an opening that is both oppressive and drenched with creepy atmosphere–namely, an evil wizard’s house where you are held prisoner. Part 4 is perhaps the creepiest of them all, with allusions to THE WIZARD OF OZ, SNOW WHITE, and it contains zombies!
