Lovecraft-inspired IOS games

Hi, does anyone know about some Lovecraft-inspired IOS games ?

A survival horror one would be just about perfect

Cthulhu Saves the World
Cthulhu Uber Allies

I am not aware of any iOS survival horror games based on Lovecraft.

There's a Lovecraftian survival horror RUNNER.

I consider it GotY material, and definitely one of the best runner games ever made.

It's got a story to tell, enemies to kill, gigantic monster bosses, damsels in distress, and a macho-filled hero with chest hairs.

BLOOD ROOFS.

I don't read much the forums these days, but this is probably the 15th time you mentioned Blood roofs in the past 3 days. Makes me wonder if gamesmold is paying you for that.

Did you notice how many times i've mentioned EPOCH? Neither Gamesmold or Uppercut pay me for that.

Plus, OP's asking for lovecraft-inspired games and something that fit the description wasnt mentioned.

Happy?

OP means "original post", meaning the first post you made on this thread.

Necronomicon: the dawning of darkness

The screenshots look pretty cool. But the reviews are negative.

Anyone having tried the game ?

I haven't tried Necronomicon: DoD yet but reports in the game's thread indicate it lasts about 6 hours and a concern that sometimes developer Microprose removes content to abbreviate mobile ports. I agree it looks promising. http://forums.toucharcade.com/showthread.php?t=169317
