Poppy Playtime

Poppy Playtime review

Poppy Playtime is a creepy and unnerving adventure that will keep you coming back for more. The puzzles are challenging, the story is engaging, and the stealth gameplay is thrilling. If you're looking for a horror game that's a little different from the norm, Poppy Playtime is definitely worth checking out.


The graphics in Poppy Playtime are colorful and vibrant, yet still manage to be creepy and unsettling. The toys look like they could come to life at any moment, and the abandoned factory has a feeling of foreboding doom. The VHS tapes that you collect throughout the game are grainy and static-filled, which only adds to the eeriness of the game. The graphics in Poppy Playtime are colorful and cheerful, despite the dark nature of the game. The environment is gritty and realistic, which makes the player feel as if they are in the abandoned factory. The toys are also designed to be realistic, which makes them even more horrifying. 


Poppy Playtime's gameplay is a mix of exploration, puzzle-solving, and stealth. You'll need to use your wits to figure out how to progress through the factory, while avoiding the dangerous toys that are out to get you. The VHS tapes that you collect throughout the game will help you piece together the story of what happened at the factory. The gameplay is smooth and the puzzles are challenging but not impossible to figure out. I also like how the game doesn’t handhold the player and instead allows them to figure out the puzzles on their own.


The multiplayer is interesting because it allows two players to play the game together and each player has their own screen. One player controls the character and the other player controls the camera. It’s a unique way to play the game and it makes the game more challenging.


Poppy Playtime proves to be a game that players would like to revisit multiple times. This is mainly driven by its diverse amount of outcomes, which are heavily influenced by the decisions you take during gameplay. It's also bursting with unveiled secrets, inviting game enthusiasts to return and peel off its many layers. The high replayability quotient stems from the variety of possible endings, driving players to reengage with the game in pursuit of a different outcome.


Overall, Poppy Playtime is a great game that is sure to please horror fans. The graphics are good, the gameplay is smooth, and the puzzles are challenging. The multiplayer is unique and the replayability is high. I would highly recommend this game to anyone who is looking for a good horror game.
