Looks pretty cool! Is this another visual novel in the vein of Manhattan Requiem? I quite like that one, although the translation isn't excellent.

Edit: I didn't see the little d-pad thing in the screenshots on iTunes for some reason. So it looks like it's not strictly a visual novel. Kind of disappointing to me if that's the case.

I bough this one when it was released and played through a couple of levels. It's kind of an exploration/maze affair. A group of kids are in a hospital and an insane lady is hunting them down. You have to find a key to escape the locked door on each floor. You can control multiple people at once. There are items to use such as lightswitches (to remember what area you have covered and to help light the hallways a bit) and fire extinguishers to spray barriers against the crazy lady. It is a very slow paced movement based game and the atmosphere (art design) is simply incredible. There are some crazy visual effects with the lighting and sound.

Action gamers stay away, it's slow and methodical. Turn-based gamers may like this.

It's a fairly simple game, but pretty darn scary. It's basically a stealth/rescue game set within a "The Ring"/"Silent Hill" setting. The pixel graphics are well done, with tons of lighting and ghostly effects for extra spookiness. One nice touch is that the vengeful ghost can take the form of one of the people you need to rescue, which was pretty startling the first time it happened. You can use elements of the environment to slow down or confuse the ghost, and there's even a hiding mechanic when everything else fails -- though it works only if you are alone. One of the reviewers in the App Store compared it to The Clock Tower, which I haven't played.

There are very few really scary games in the App Store, so it's nice to see an import like this one surface. I should note that the translation is pretty poor, but thankfully it doesn't affect the gameplay.

No, but it doesn't look that bad. You can see pixalation, but the images are not blurry.

Too bad about the translations, but thanks for your impressions. I shall play this on iPad tonight. I can always use a good Siren/Clocktower inspired pixel-art game on iOS.
