Neighbors from Hell is a popular strategy game with the theme of tricking neighbors and achieving new levels of finding humorous levels of unsuspecting characters.
Neighbors from Hell plays off of the common occurrence of that annoying neighbor. This is one of those interactive games that is part subjective strategy and humor. The objective is to play crude and funny tricks on a neighbor using various tools and objects. Each level will have both actions to complete and tools available to unlock for gaining additional points. There are several zones in each level to explore in addition to training modes to learn new tricks.
A few examples of tricks to learn include using pranks for distraction or initiating annoying noises. Rooms are unlocked throughout the game as you gain points and experience. Basic rooms, such as a hallway and kitchen, are given to players initially. The game becomes more difficult when you have to manage several new unlocked rooms and maintain a level of anonymity to your unsuspecting neighbor.
The cast of characters are placed in anime and cartoon style graphics with accompanying sound effects. The neighbor character of the game, Mr. Rottweiler, is a hilarious rendition of a character who has several pets and quirks throughout the game. Woody is the main character that creates pranks to pull on Mr. Rottweiler. Mr. Rottweiler has several pets including a guard dog and a parrot. A narrator gives hints throughout the game and useful tips in the training mode. Obstacles within Neighbors from Hell include a run-in with the neighbor's pets. The pets alert Mr. Rottweiler to your antics, so it's important to keep a watchful eye during gameplay.
