App description: The Woods is a psychological first person action adventure horror game set deep within an ancient wood (3D and free roaming). You play a paranormal investigator tasked to uncover the mystery of the woods and lay to rest any spirits within. While avoiding contact with a sinister demon you must collect pages to a ritual book which can be used to send the spirits back to hell for good. The tension builds slowly but soon you will be running for your life, your only defence is your flashlight that can burn away spirits momentarily. The Woods is highly atmospheric and will have you terrified to look over your shoulder throughout. There's even a reaction camera built in to see those jump scare moments utilising a Picture in Picture webcam image (external software required for recording).

The Woods has even been optimised for older devices allowing for a smooth playable experience on both iPod touch 4G and iPhone 4 even with per-pixel torch lighting. When using newer devices The Woods is simply stunning displaying thick vegetation thought out. Additional Anti-Aliasing has even been added to non retina displays (iPad 2 and iPad mini) compensating for the loss of resolution.

A beautifully smooth and responsive first person control system has been specifically developed to elegantly control both player and flashlight giving a very natural feel to movement when peering into the dark dense wood.

thanks for the info. I just found all 20 pages, without giving away any spoilers is there an extra cut scene at the end. I finished getting the 20 pages, then went back to the circle, that was it. Just wondering if my iPod froze or is that the end game.

really looking forward to added content.

Yes there should be a final boss fight when you push the ghosts into the portal and a short cut Scene and a final page to read.

Thanks for this, basically its the same invisible wall that stops you leaving the house gets you stuck if you move to close to the window at the start of the game.

If you go right though the doorway first your ok

will fix in next update

Thanks!

Anybody want tips for completing chapter one?

I know you are probaly sick of all the checkpoint ideas, but instead of that why dont you just lessen the amount of pages. It makes it a much easier game then, and you could have different difficulty levels: 8 easy, 15 intermediate, 20 hard etc. it would make the game a much more enjoyable experiance.

Another thing is the joystick controls (or lack of), whilst i agree having strafing and backing up the same speed of the character would make the game much easier, it would make it much funner. Right now it is a bit like the old resident evil (4-5) control wise! Maybe you should limit it as you said earlier on.

Overall, i am really enjoying the game and i look forward to seeing what you guys can do in the future!!! Remember, an easier game isnt a bad game.

I'm a big fan of this game and crave more ! I think that putting different levels, ie, easy, medium, hard. Would detract from the game. The whole point is to figure out strategies to complete the chapter. It took me a while but I completed it and it was definately one of the creepiest experiences I've had playing an iphone game. I had a hard time playing this at night, originally. The music and sounds really add to this creepy atmosphere.

Well done devs, and look forward to more content !

New update


New Update


Full proportional joystick control
Backwards and sideways movement (strafing)
Better sound volume levels, walking sound more subtle
The location of some of the pages have changed
Smaller download and install size
General bug fixes
Better end game portal effect


Please do tell us what you think, the controls are very much more action focused and give a greater control, but we would love to know if this is a better system.

More updates coming next month

New competition
