Are these games based on some TV series or movie? Are any of them (the game apps) decent enough to check out? From what I've seen thus far, they all kinda look the same to me. And, they don't look very substantive.
Slenderman is a monster/myth that was conjured up by the internet, starting in the SomethingAwful forums. It's grown into a substantial mythos, with multiple Alternate Reality Games built up around it (MarbleHornets, everymanHYBRID, etc).
Several of these iOS games have been unofficial ports of the PC game Slender, which is available for free and has an iOS port in the works. A few have been scams, and other ones are just totally different.
