Handheld Players writes: "Yomawari: Midnight Shadows is a very good game. If you enjoyed the first Yomawari, then you will enjoy Midnight Shadows. The gameplay and style is pretty much the same which is no bad thing since the first game was also so good. Midnight Shadows perfectly nails the horror atmosphere with its slow player movement and chilling sound effects. This is a game that should be played in the dark with headphones on, letting yourself just feel the scares and tension of being a helpless child exploring a town full of monsters at night."
