Scariest iPhone Games?

Are there any genuinely scary, heart-pounding, sweat-inducing, white-knuckle (hyperbole overload!!) games available on the App Store?

The only "scary" games I've played are "Soul", "Silent Hill - The Escape", Fallen EP 1 and Resident Evil 4 - which I found the latter to be disappointing. Gameloft's attempt: "Zombie Infection" lacked any atmosphere or scares, despite being a good game otherwise.

Are there any decent scary games out there on the App Store?

I can only dream of a Silent Hill 2 port, but Konami seem to be treating App Store customers like fools.

lol there isn't a scary game for iphone... I've tried "soul" and "fallen" but I have never had the famous "jump-from-the-chair"!

I love this world!

Hysteria project's supposed to be scary, but it was dumb

Mystique is pretty nice... The atmosphere is scary, and I definitely jumped a couple times.

I'm a bit of a scaredy-cat, though

Mystique 2, from what I've played, is also scary. Though I'm completely stuck on the first portion of the game :\

Mystique is pretty short, though. If it's $1, it's worth it for the atmosphere and scares.

It's all nice............. until you encounter the badger.

Ever since the incident with the badger, I have had nightmares and I keep on hearing rustling noises like a badger is trying to get into my house.

I found Soul very freaky, nothing else at all has made me feel that on the App Store. Horses for courses.

Invaders Must Die.
