Dark Themed Survival Games

Any games on iOS like that? I'm tired of all the high contrast, pretty colors and all the retro-style huge pixels games.
I'm looking for some more depressing themed games - mostly survival, defence, tower defence, platform, almost all genres EXCEPT First Person Shooters. I can't stand FPSs on touchscreen.

Thanks in advance!

Eve of Impact
Dead Space
Chaos Rings Series
Infinity Blade Series
Papa Sangre
The Walking Dead
Zombie Gunship
774 Deaths
Jaws Revenge
Call of Cthulhu: The Wasted Land

These may not be exactly what you are looking for, but it's the closest things you can get from the appstore.

I would add Tactical Soldier: Undead Rising, Prisoner 84, Aftermath, Dark Meadow, Samurai 2 (which is colorful but the theme is very dark), Predator, Elder Signs, Wasted Lands, Wizardry, Nihilumbra, Oscura, Lara Croft, and Final Run. I would also look into the adventure genre: there are several great, dark titles like 1112 and The Secret of Chateau de Mureau.

I am sure there are more. The fact is that there is a great variety of themes, and moods available in the App Store: you just have to go beyond the obvious titles.

I would throw in Deo, if it's still in the app store.

I got Tactical Soldier, Aftermath, Nihilumbra and Oscura. Thanks!
Aftermath is what I'm looking for - the game is perfect, I only wished it had more depth.

I think I'll get the walking dead too - I love the TV show
