Friday the 13th - The Gamefor Windows

6

Escape and try to survive Jason’s attacks, and help out your fellow teen survivors.

A game of survival and strategy

Play through the scene of the Friday the 13th Movie and stay alive as you escape from Camp Crystal Lake.

Fight your way through the nightmare world in this Friday the 13th game. You'll need to use strategy and survival skills to make it to the end.

You can play with up to eight of your friends in multiplayer mode. The game picks one of the players to be Jason at random, and the others are teenagers being hunted down by him. Jason has supernatural abilities, and these grow as you keep playing. You can unlock cool features and abilities the more you play.

To survive, you'll have to choose an escape route and plan your way out. You can leave by car, boat, or with help from the cops. You'll need to find items around the map to aid your escape. While you search for those objects, you have to fend off Jason’s attacks and try to help your fellow survivors if they’re in trouble.

Challenge yourself by sticking the night out and trying to survive based on your wits. Find weapons and use the controls to fight Jason. This option is harder and, naturally, you can expect to lose a few times before you get it right. For experts of the survivor genre, it’s a great feature that makes gameplay more interesting.

If you’ve played as a camp counselor multiple times in a row, it can feel repetitive. Finding items or just trying to survive can be a little boring if you’ve been through the game many times. There is also no option to choose to play as Jason. This title automatically picks someone to be the famed murderer, which can be frustrating if you would rather choose. The kills are also pretty gory, as one could imagine. Jason can throw you headfirst into a fire, or if you choose to hide in a sleeping bag, he can grab it and beat you against a tree.

Where can you run this program?

This program is installable on computers using Windows 7 and above.

Is there a better alternative?

Yes. Dead by Daylight is a similar title and offers more gameplay variety.

Our take

Friday the 13th is an interesting horror game that incorporates key elements of the franchise well. It could do with more gameplay and the option to play Jason.

Should you download it?

Yes. If you are looking for a survival game with good graphics and an interesting plot, this is a viable program.
