Spirit Camera: The Cursed Memoir uses the built-in 3D camera and augmented reality to exciting effect. Help free a girl named Maya from an evil curse - horror fans looking for something new must look no further.
In Spirit Camera: The Cursed Memoir, the lines between your reality and the in-game reality have been blurred like never before. In the Story Mode, you will move forward within the game by using Nintendo 3DS Camera as the ‘Camera Obscura’, a mysterious camera that is central to the Project Zero series, to film your actual environment. You must master the mysterious Camera Obscura and use its unique powers to uncover the mystery behind a strange diary and battle against spirits using both AR and the unique Nintendo 3DS Camera.
Spirit Camera: The Cursed Memoir is accompanied by a special AR Book known as the Purple Diary. You are the protagonist and are taken on an immersive supernatural journey that will utilise every facet of the Nintendo 3DS’ camera and Augmented Reality capabilities to scare you in brand new ways.
By using the Nintendo 3DS Camera and Augmented Reality functions to unlock the hidden content within each page of the Purple Diary, you can explore the mystery behind the diary and interact with 3D spirits who will either help or hurt you. Some spirits will even appear in the real world next to you and you can only see them by moving around your environment and looking through the Nintendo 3DS to find where they are lurking. Be careful because they might be behind you waiting to attack!
Spirit Camera: The Cursed Memoir offers more than just an innovative story mode, there are a number of extra challenges and spooky mini games to master as well as unlocking the mysteries of the Purple Diary in story mode. The Spirit Check mode allows you to interact with your own face in the Purple Diary, after taking a photo of your face it will appear superimposed in the Purple Diary along with scary ghosts lurking in the environment. Spirit Challenge on the other hand assigns attributes such as Attack Power, Speed and HP to a picture of a face taken with the Nintendo 3DS camera allowing you to fight in a special version of a Story Mode battle. The Cursed Pages mode allows you to play through a collection of games using the Nintendo 3DS camera and the Purple Diary ranging from riddles to puzzles.
To master the Camera Obscura and battle cursed spirits in new and innovative ways then look no further than Spirit Camera: The Cursed Memoir for Nintendo 3DS .

Given the length of this game, I won't directly spoil it, it will take you about 1-3 hours depending on your skill as a gamer but before you look away thinking this game isn't worth it, needless to say it is.
When opening up the game case for the first time after buying you will notice a weird looking diary book, although some may dismiss as a neat little extra this book is your game.
Although best played in the daytime due to the Camera requiring the light to read the book at specific points in the game, you can also play the game at night provided you have a bright enough light source such as a desk lamp.
Upon starting the game you are required to scan in the first page, doing this will magically transport you into a creepy looking house. Different sounds and the eery atmosphere makes the game feel every bit the horror game it advertises, using the Gyroscopic controls you can look around in any direction, and you need to stand up to play this game for the record.
Needless to say after a certain creepy scene you meet a young woman who tells you her story and you are 'brought back' to the real world which is because you have the Camera Obscura, but a nice surprise is, thanks to the Augmented reality function of the DS, the woman is in whatever room your playing this game with you, and you can chat to her to progress the story.
At one point very early into the game you have to use your 3DS as a Camera obscura and look around in your room for a ghost that has appeared from the game with your Camera Obscura and beat it. Which is kinda neat.Read more ›
It is also a technical improvement over the default AR games which come with the 3DS. It seems to track the real world much more accurately and is more ambitious which what it attempts to do. This game really demonstrates how AR techniques can create an immersive adventure game.
Spirit Camera: The Cursed Memoir has two major flaws. Firstly the camera requires a great deal of light to work. It seems a bit of a misfire to create a game based around horror tension and then have to either play it with all the lights on or play during the day.
Secondly, it is extremely short. I rattled through the story mode first time in about 2.5 hours and 30 minutes of that was due to the difficulty I had beating the final boss. There are some side modes which reprise the puzzles and battles of the main game and there is also a replay of the story with some additional plot, but really those looking for a deep adventure will be disappointed. This game is best viewed as a stylish remake of the 3DS' own built-in AR games and photo modes, although I felt that the default games came with more variety.
There's not much out in the market like this so it is worth a look, but I really hope someone can pick up where this game has left off and provide a much more in-depth adventure.
I am a huge fan of survival horror and this new, seemingly unique idea gripped me. It was only after the product arrived did I realise its part of a Horror series I have already played... Project Zero (Fatal Frame).
On start up this game is wonderfully presented with nice visuals and a high production value feel to it. The gameplay itself is in many way good, with some excellent visuals and a wonderful concept.
There are two major things that hinder this otherwise excellent experience. Firstly, I was hoping to play this game is a darkish environment in order to make it a scarier experience, sadly, the 3DS camera does not seem to cope very well unless used in a ridiculously bright environment, this simply sets the wrong mood for this game, but this is an issue with the hardware and not the game so I suppose I can't complain too much. Secondly, the sizing of the in game enemies compared to your environment is a little off, if your playing this game in an open space like a living room or a hallway or something then its fine but if your playing in a single room it gets a little distracting.
In terms of game modes theres the main story in which a dark and genuinely unsettling adventure unfolds. A survival type mode where you simply fight monsters from the campaign mode. And lastly there is a collection of little mini games that are more apps than they are games.
Overall this game is definitely worth a play for any horror fan. I can't help thinking that is this was on the PS Vita, its better quality camera would add to the experience.
