Horror games?

Are there any true horror games for the iDevice? By true horror I mean mostly psychological horror, ones that are very suspenseful/mysterious/freaky, untainted by the developer's attempts at trying to turn a scary game into some violent action game. So that rules out stuff like Doom, Rage, RE4, RE Degeneration, the assembly of those silly zombie games, or anything with big guns/excessive blood/violence.
The perfect examples are of course classics like the original Resident Evil (pre-Resident Evil 4) and Silent Hill games, you could walk through the entire game without fighting anyone but it would still be creepy the first few times you play it. Graphics are of no concern, in fact I would prefer excellent 2D graphics over crappy 3D graphics.
Mystique seems be mentioned many times before, any others?

There's a game in the works called Forgotten Memories. It's made by the creators of Dead Strike, but if you were sour on that game, you may be happy to hear that Forgotten Memories is shaping up to be the best psychological horror game on iOS. I really hope it turns out to be as good as it's looking.

Also, if you haven't heard of it before, Prisoner 84 has been out for quite a while. That's a fantastic one that proves that good sound beats out good graphics any day of the week.

It's now free forever and very much worth the download. Sadly, the developer went belly up and we'll never see Ep 2.

Oh dur... I forgot all about that game. I never got too far in it, but I don't know why. That's really sad to hear there won't be an episode two though :\ Is that 100% confirmed?

Did you even read any of the thread before you posted?

I remember reading something about trying to get it going again, but when someone makes the source code public domain that's not a good sign .
