|Pokemon - Hypno's Lullaby Review by: ender44
A faithful adaptation
Once upon a time there was a somewhat popular creepypasta known as hypno's lullaby. This creepypasta revolved around a hypno that would kidnap children with this lullaby and then well.... kill them. You can read this creepypasta for yourself if you Google it. Dedicated fans have been known to make hacks based on their favorite creepypastas, this is one such game. The story does not play out exactly as it does in the creepypasta, but it revolves around the same antagonist and the same idea.
Graphics: have you played fire red? You got it. Though for the seven of you out there who haven't, I will describe. This is a hack that doesn't show off some of the best looking things of fire red, but it is still a good looking game. The environments look pretty nice, and the eerie feeling a creepypasta needs is captured very well.
Sound: The music really doesn't fit the mood that it should, for the most part at least. It keeps that happy Pokémon music for about half the game, granted half the game is about 4 minutes. Once the "scary" part starts it keeps the eerie music from lavender town and the Pokémon tower.
Addictiveness: I mean, it kept me going. Its not like it needed to hold me on for the whole thing, the whole thing took 8-10 minutes. So, I cant say you will be bored, but I cant say you will be hooked. It was fun and spooky enough to hold me on for the 8-10 minutes.
Story: As said before, this game does not play out in the exact way the creepypasta does. On this game, children have been disappearing on three island. Professor Oak's grandson has disappeared and asks you to find him. You pick from vulpix and marill for starter Pokémon and you walk out. There isn't much to do in town, the pokecenter and mart are both blocked, and all of the towns people are either gone or say the same things about the missing children. You make your way to the berry forest where you eventually find a little girl, this girl was bait for hypno to attack you. Hypno attacks you and kills your Pokémon, eventually making you fall asleep and carrying you to his cave. In his cave you meet a woman who has not been hypnotized yet. She heals your Pokémon before becoming hypnotized herself. There are about another hundred people in this cave, who when interacted with respond with an eloquent series of dots. You will then climb up a few sets of stairs and fall down a few holes. After that you encounter many people who you must kill to progress. You then make your way to hyno who hypnotizes. You wake up in the rainy town of nightmare. You battle hypno who uses children to attack you. After that you enter "not an exact copy of the Pokémon tower" where young children will tell you that you killed them. Well I obviously didn't do a good job now did I? After that you can enter a cave where you are forever followed by hypno. And that's the game.
Depth: This game took me about ten minutes to complete. The towns people don't talk to you, you cant trigger random battles, and you can catch one Pokémon.
Difficulty: The times when you are meant to die, you die. When you are meant to win, you win. Otherwise, its just walking, and that really isn't hard.
Overall, it was fun enough. It is a faithful hack that did not just rip from the creepypasta. It is original (in a way) and it is clear somebody put some sort of effort into it. I would give it a shot.
