Games that promise a return to proper old-school survival horror are nothing new, but in COLINA: Legacy that is exactly what we are getting. Being left to utilise a flashlight to make our way around, and taking in a third person camera angle, fans of horror will be in their element. And it is now that we are seeing COLINA: Legacy launch on Xbox One.
COLINA: Legacy on Xbox One comes about via the team at chance6 Studios, and from the initial overview it certainly looks to have a bit of old-school Resi Evil about it. Priced at a mere £4.19 and available to download right now from the Xbox Store for Xbox One, COLINA: Legacy sees you playing out proceedings as Alex, a man who has awoken in his grandmother’s home.
Now waking up at your grandparents should be no cause for alarm, but in COLINA: Legacy from the very first minute it feels as if Alex is being watched and so before he loses his mind, must escape the horror.
This will see you pushed through multiple puzzles as you attempt to understand what his happening in the world, drawing deep into Alex’s wits in order to make an escape. It certainly looks like this psychological horror will play out a bit like an escape room – do you have what it takes to help him?
With obvious inspiration from the great survival horror titles of the past, and seing you being left to fend for yourself with just a trusty flashlight to hand, should you be on the lookout for something to scare you witless – possible in multiple ways – then a purchase of COLINA: Legacy on Xbox One should be considered.
