A pop-out scare, also known as a jump scare, is a term often used in survival horror. When the player least expects it, something will "pop up" at them, usually making a loud noise. Resident Evil was one of the first games to use this term when a zombified dog jumped through a window after the player went past it. Dead Space also used this during the first few parts of the game, but some players argued that this became predictable in later games in the series. Spooky's House of Jump Scares, like its title suggests, focuses on jump scares.
