In Serial Cleaner, you play as a guy named, you guessed it, Mr. Cleaner. Your job is to go to crime scenes (all aftermath included), to clean up the mess. You need to remove evidence, bodies, and blood before the body bags come for them. You must avoid the police by hiding in quite obvious hiding places and avoiding their flashlights.
The gameplay consists of a cat and mouse style game to complete your objectives from stage to stage. The game takes place during the 70’s while serial killers were on a rampage. Serial Cleaner has many quirks and hidden gems within the game as well. For example, you can check the paper each day before starting your job and one of the days the headline says “Popular musician dies at age 27”, this is obviously speaking of Jimi Hendrix who died in 1970 at age 27. Things like that are what makes Serial Cleaner a fun and quirky game.
Overall, Serial Cleaner won’t be for everyone, but the gameplay is quite engaging. The layout of the levels are well thought out and the visual art-style is nice to look at. The hiding system is a nice addition as well. Serial Cleaner is a nice mix of stealth and puzzle gameplay. It can get quite frustrating when you try to move the final body, but get caught and have to start all the way over.
