Horror in the Pacific is an open world Lovecraftian text-based adventure game, where players explore and investigate progressing though an engaging and exciting story. It is a mobile phone adaption of the classic text-based adventure genre, similar to the point-and-click classics. The game combines a bleak environment, an sense of underlying dread, and several moments of comedy to keep you entertained.

As the third game in the "Horror in the Darkness" series, Horror in the Pacific takes place several years after the events of Horror at Innsport. Called once again to investigate a case of a missing person, our protagonist is drawn to a small resort island in the Pacific, to uncover all new macabre horrors.

Can’t put it down

Great game-was really hard to put down and upgrading was an easy choice.

Ran into a couple of bugs that froze the game while playing, happy to reproduce those if Devs want.

Great atmosphere during the game, music and story writing was superb and didn’t go overboard on too many details but let it build itself and use the reader imagination. A bit dark souls-ish.

One gripe - some of the items disappeared after use and some didn’t without explanation why so ended up wasting lots of time trying to use old items again and again when I was stuck.

Also, some of the clues and progression points were very non-intuitive and based on “common knowledge” that are not very common knowledge outside of certain generations/geographies. For example, using the sugar correctly would be outside the intuitive knowledge of many younger or foreign players.

Overall, though, fantastic game. Can’t wait for the next one.

An entertaining game

I had fun playing this, exploring all the locations and figuring out how to solve various puzzles. I'm at the very end of the game though and I'm stuck. I think i need to use fireworks with the ledge but i can't figure out got how to do so. Also, at this point in the game, when i press hints, the program dies and i need to restart it. Any suggestions?

BTW, i just bought the next game in the series, Madness at Hobbsgate, so that's my endorsement of all of these games!

Great series of games

This game and the others in the series are challenging, fun, and exist in a universe that truly does feel Lovecraftian. If you liked this game, definitely check out the others by the same developers. I sincerely hope they continue making more games like these!
