Ather asylum is a classic point-and-click adventure game featuring first person view and photorealistic graphic. The player is entrapped in a wicked asylum with the front door blocked by a mysterious force and must find a way to escape this scary place. As previously said, the graphic is made of photographs of rooms of a decaying building and it succeeds in creating the scary atmosphere the game deserves. The music loops in the background while the game is playing and is pleasant enough to immerse the player in the game.
The inventory is shown in the bottom part of the screen. The game features both inventory based puzzles (i.e. use the correct item in the correct place to advance in the game) as well as Myst-style puzzles where the player has to work out the combination to open a safe as well as some locked boxes. One of the most interesting features of the game is the flashlight, an inventory item that can be turned on to highlight dark spots where useful objects can be hidden. The game is interesting and quite challenging. A drawback is the lack of possibility to combine items from the inventory.
