*Nominated for Mobile game of the Year by the Academy of Interactive Arts and Sciences.

* IGN: "worth playing just to experience the games huge amount of eccentric dialogue, and to experience the unfolding mystery.... one of the best to hit the App Store in recent memory."

* KOTAKU: "at home in the halls of BioShock's Rapture...disturbingly gorgeous experience."

* TOUCH ARCADE: "The Dark Meadow is a standout in almost every way. From look to setting to the touch-centric gameplay, it shines, and you can tell this title was crafted with much love "

* GIZMODO.UK: "a splendid achievement. The bar has been raised, the gauntlet has been thrown down, and the hyperbole has been exhausted. We cant wait to see the next game that tries to go one better."

* MODOJO: "a cross between BioShock and Infinity Blade... a hauntingly beautiful and intriguing game everyone should play, as it offers both a compelling adventure and a glimpse into the future of smart phone gaming. "

* GAMEZEBO: "arguably the best title to come to the genre. It's gorgeous, it's creepy, and it's a blast to play. This is the perfect game to play during the Halloween season. "


A dark fairytale of intrigue and mystery, where the sins of the past must be paid for So sets the stage for The Dark Meadow -- a visually stunning world of deep exploration, gripping story, and heart racing combat, created with the unrivaled power of the Unreal Engine 3.

You awake in a hospital uncertain of how you arrived there or why. An old man warns of a beautiful witch whose minions roam the halls seeking the living. It is only when the witch is destroyed that you will be released from this unrelenting torment.

Using fun and intuitive fully gesture-based controls, you explore the decaying ruins of Montclair Hospital, armed with your crossbow for long-range combat as well as your sword for up close and personal melee battles.

The best elements from role-playing games encourage exploration as a wide variety of items are secreted throughout the world from hidden scraps of paper that reveal the mystery of your imprisonment, to weapons and items, to money which can be used to purchase better equipment and weapons.

- Visually stunning, photo-realistic world built with the Unreal 3 engine

- A mature plot, stylized as a dark modern fairytale with bizarre twists and turns;

- In-world storytelling and quality acting

- Gesture-based action: crossbow ranged combat with pull back and fire mechanic, slashing melee combat with dodging, blocking, and combos;

- Available in English, French, German, Spanish, Japanese, Korean , Italian, Simplified Chinese, Russian, and Brazilian Portuguese languages.

I finished the game without any IAPs, playing on the paid version.

Such a crummy game. Same thing happens repeatedly and there's zero terror apart from the fact you already know the next room/hallway is going to be exactly the same as the last. And you don't find enemies EVER!! They just spawn in front of you. Paid for and sorely disappointed

Yah, the devs try to forget they even made the game. Look at how they completely dropped support and can't even push out widescreen.

Seriously? That's your criteria to rate a game 1-star?

Ever heard of random encounters? And were you expecting a different hallways or rooms in a hospital? The game fails as a horror game, coz it isnt. O_o

And also, there's a free version for you to test it out. I really wish youre just trolling, but what i read seems to suggest otherwise.
