Point-and-click enthusiasts of mysterious horror should strike without hesitation. All others should at least play the teaser and consider whether those large edged pixels do not hurt too much.* Read full review

Drew Hurley   June 5, 2017
Some of the puzzles are fantastic, with smart solutions and designs hitting that sweet spot between tricky and obtuse. The problem is these puzzles are in the minority, while the majority are rather mediocre - and worse yet, there are maze puzzles. Read full review

It's still got its fair share of frustrations, but it's a solid experience, and it's easily one of the best written horror games out there right now. Read full review

Sure, the puzzles are not very smart or innovative. But it has a singular mood and the action hits every note on the Lovecraft keyboard. With thanks especially to the game's mystical sonic environment, more than one shiver ran down my spine.* Read full review

There is good in this game, but there are some elements that keep The Last Door from being excellent. What I would like is a deluxe version of the game with all the graphics redone in a 21st century style!* Read full review

The game is engaging and absolutely nails the setting and atmosphere, but a somewhat disappointing ending and some more questionable puzzle logic kept it from being an all-time classic. Read full review

It’s not only the writing and the music (or the surprisingly detailed environments) that make the atmosphere and the game work so well, but the fact the Game Kitchen married their puzzle design to their storytelling. Read full review

Ten years ago, perhaps no one would have believed that a game with pixel art could perfectly capture the atmosphere of terror in Poe and Lovecraft. But The Last Door may be the epitome of this retro-artistic improvement of terror.* Read full review

The game has to be played for enjoying the complete story, but with a bit more focus on the plot, characters, and subtle horror and less on puzzle solving, this could have been a much better sequel. Read full review
