There's already a thread about Dead Space but are there any good scares in the app store?

Your title made me laugh. I hope I'm not a scary gamer.
Anyway, I haven't tried it but I hear Papa Sangre can be pretty immersively scary. So far for me, only Dead Space has made me jump a few times.

Star Breed is intense and scary, but it requires reading.

I came in curious to find out the criteria of a scary gamer. You disappointed me.

Not sure if the Mystique series is scary enough for you. Dead Space is almost too scary for me.

Papa Sangre is a cool one. It scares you with immersive audio effects, which is the basis of the whole game. There is no video in this "video game" to distract you from the amazing 3d sound quality.

Dead Space... not as scary as I imagined it could have been, but it does have a good suspense about it, as you walk alone through these desolate, graphics-heavy corridors.

Soul- A lesser known title, an artistic maze game that has you as a glimmering pulse of light and hope in a labyrinth of darkness and evil...

Aftermath- Another lesser known title, this zombie shooter has an amazing atmosphere that sucks you in to a ruined city populated by the undead, implementing neat lighting effects and a gritty, cool style that's rare on the App Store.

I was thinking that. A title fail, lol.

Have a look at Naruto RPG!
Look at Gamebook Adventures for iPhone/iPod/iPad!
I do app descriptions for free
