Detention Review:

8.7 Total Score

Detention is set in 1960s Taiwan during martial law. The game opens with Wei, a kid falling asleep in class, and when he wakes up notices the school has been abandoned. He meets a girl named Rey, where they both agree to escape the school. In this 2D atmospheric horror side-scroller, players navigate the main characters in a classic point and click fashion to explore a high school where evil encroaches. The game is really creepy, and you will get spooked! Regardless of the characters or the background of the game rendering has a fascinating feeling.The game has a sense of a strong sense of Chinese culture in it
