If you played Choo-Choo Charles and loved it, don’t miss these other fun scary games.
The best horror games aren’t afraid to use strange ideas and make them work in scary ways. This is shown very well by Choo-Choo Charles. This survival horror game was made by Two Star Games. It is about a train with a face and spider legs that is trying to find you and kill you.
Most of the game is about exploring the open world in your own train, which you can improve to make a superweapon against the evil train. The main goal is to finish tasks, find three eggs to call Charles, and finally beat the hungry engine. People who like these crazy scary games can play this one and a lot of other games like it.
Five Nights At Freddy’s
Choo-Choo Charles is based on the much more kid-friendly show Thomas the Tank Engine. This fits with a common theme in horror stories, which is to turn something that is nice and safe for kids into something much scarier. Five Nights at Freddy’s is one of the most well-known horror games that went in this direction.
Even though it’s now a whole series, the first game was about working the night shift at Freddy Fazbear’s Pizza and watching the security cams as technical problems started to happen. You have to keep an eye on where the moving things go, or you will be chased down.
Survival horror games like Choo-Choo Charles can make you feel helpless at times. This feeling is very strong in Dead Space, an EA game from 2008 that was remade 15 years later and became a huge hit. This was Isaac Clarke’s first scary journey. His ship’s crew had all been killed, so he had to fight aliens on his own.
The action-based game has a lot of scary monsters that can jump on Isaac from almost any direction because there is no gravity. You will have to think about every move you make, because even easy things like reloading your gun can leave you open to an enemy who is getting ready to attack.
Inside The Backrooms
Even though Inside The Backrooms isn’t as open as Choo-Choo Charles, it still has the same amount of reason to explore its winding halls that all seem to look the same. The good news is that you can work with friends who can help you look for a way out.
The early access horror game is based on a famous copypasta, and the descriptions of the rooms match those in the original post. The main goal is to look in these places for things to pick up that might lead to a clue or puzzle answer about how to move on. But there are things in the game that can hurt you. You just need to figure out how they act.
Bendy And The Ink Machine
Choo-Choo Charles might ruin one show for kids, but Bendy and the Ink Machine wants to ruin them all. The game takes place in Joey Drew Studios, which is a made-up place where the same-named artist works. It was given up, and you can’t go back until you’re asked.
You play as Henry, who used to be an animator but has now stopped doing that. Now, strange things are happening in the workshop, like filling up with ink and spreading out with scary-looking figures that look like they came straight from the drawing boards. The game is broken up into five parts and is set up like a series of episodes, so you can at least take in the horror in small chunks.
Since Slenderman became a big deal, some horror game makers have used the idea that players have one short job that is a lot harder because of what is going on around them. Even though it uses the same “collect pages” structure as Slenderman, Lunch Lady does a good job with it.
Online, up to four friends can work together to explore a school at night and find 10 pages. Meanwhile, the Lunch Lady is out looking for people to charge, and she is not afraid to do so. The game has choices like “difficulty” and “proximity chat” that make it feel like people are really moving towards and away from each other.
Poppy Playtime takes place in an old toy factory, which fits with the theme of losing childhood memories. Yes, the toys that will make your time in Playtime Co. a living hell are all different. But what makes Poppy Playtime stand out from other games in its genre is the Grabpack, which is a unique way to play.
With these two hands, players can reach things that are far away and hack into electrical systems to solve puzzles. So even if things seem scary, you have something that will make you feel strong. If you don’t want to pay for a scare, you can play the first episode for free.
Siren Head: Awakening
When we talk about cultural phenomena, Siren Head, a piece of art by Trevor Henderson, became a social media hit. As the name suggests, it is a tall, thin creature with the head of a siren. This led to a lot of games, such as Siren Head: Awakening.
Like Choo-Choo Charles, Siren Head Awakening is about travelling and finding missing parts for your vehicle, but you won’t be able to use the car as a weapon against the Siren Head. You will also find notes that add to the creepy history of a situation that is already scary.
The PC version of Choo-Choo Charles is now out.
