Compact Claustrophobia 1.16.5 is a modification for the popular survival horror game Mineways. The main goal of the game is to build the shelter before the monster attacks. This mod is similar in concept to the modpack Mineways, but with a few differences. Unlike Mineways, this mod doesn’t contain an actual story line and is more purely “mod-style”. However, I think it turned out pretty good! Read on to learn my thoughts on this.
The main difference between Compact Claustrophobia and Mineways is that in the latter, you actually have to build a shelter instead of simply defending it from the monsters. There are several episodes in which you have to build a shelter in the middle of a field as the monsters come at you from all directions! In the beginning of the game, I really didn’t have much energy and thought that it was going to be impossible to clear the level. However, I was quite surprised that I was able to clear the whole area in a single try!
The main objective of the game is to survive as long as possible. I think this is quite simple, but the game gives you a hint when you don’t exactly know how – you start with a robed figure walking around the map. That’s it! There is no need to guess about anything.
The graphics in Compact Claustrophobia are not perfect – they are not very life-like. But I can say that they are far from it! Things are just not rendered as well. There is some lovely 3D effects, but overall the visuals do not reach that much.
Despite all these shortcomings, Compact Claustrophobia is still a worthy game to try. The story is short and the maps are interesting. The music is done well, but there are better ones available! The fact that you are required to work your way through the levels using only a flashlight makes things even more challenging. At the end of each level, there’s a secret area to find which contains a rare item.
To conclude, Compact Claustrophobia is not a game for everyone. If you are looking for something easier and with less technical stuff going on, this is not it. However, if you like adventure and horror games, then this is perfect for you. It is probably not something you will want to play every day, but it can be a great night’s play if you have some spare time. So, what are you waiting for?
