Games with gothic artwork??

Are there any good games on the App Store with gothic, Tim Burton-esque art direction?

Yes!

Oddy Smog.
Soul
Into The Twilight (kinda?)
Red Rage
Trundle

Can't think of many more, but I'd say start off with the top 2 anyway. Hope that has given you a good starter.

Thanks very much sammysin. Soul is brilliant, just very difficult, and Trundle is great fun too. I'm thinking about purchasing Oddy Smog, but I wasn't a big fan of Doodle Jump, and apart from the art style, Oddy Smog seems to be in a similar vein.

Does anyone know of any more?

Not a problem my friend. Soul is extremely hard I agree. Regarding Oddy, it's not like Doodle Jump control wise. Believe me, it's a much more fair and skill based game.

No I am not I just really like Tim Burton's art direction.

- also, none of those games you've mentioned have much of a Tim Burton/gothic art style lol

Plushed has a Tim Burton-esque quality to it what with the eye-ball trees etc. Also GameLab's forthcoming Doodle Gore looks like something straight out of one of Burton's sketchbooks. Lastly, Hanged features some nice stop motion animation. Hope that helps

YES! You beat me to it. I was thinking about Plushed. It fits what you are after perfectly.
