Sanitarium is a psychological horror point-and-click adventure video game that was originally released for Microsoft Windows. It was developed by DreamForge Intertainment and published by ASC Games.The game uses a bird’s-eye view perspective and a non-tiled 2D navigational system. Each world and setting carries a distinct atmosphere that presents either the real world, the imaginary world, or a mix of both of the main protagonist.

This indistinction underlines much of the horror portrayed in the game.

However, it’s about as close to a horror shooter as it gets on mobile.
