App description: The Spookening is a 3D scare em up game la Tim Burton. You die every night and spawn as a ghost trying to resurrect.

Scare villagers out of their wits and grab their soul power during the midnight hour in order to resurrect!

\\\ Review Quotes ///
"Overall, The Spookening is an original, entertaining and extremely well done game." - Android Entity

"Varied, funny and, simply, great." - Bitmaiden

"It's clear that Modesty put thoughtful work into creating a game that thinks pretty far outside the box." - Gamezebo

"The Spookening brings a brand new game genre to the table." - Bitmaiden

"The Spookening is an entertaining romp." - Gamezebo

\\\ Overview ///
Clifftown is haunted. The innocent villagers never asked for any of this spookening to happen, but neither did you ask to die each and every night with the knowledge that the villagers Soular Power could bring you back to life.
In The Spookening you enter as Hero Hermans ghost. Can you change Hermans fate, and give him a chance for another day among the living?
By learning the rules of the world beyond, you will gain the skill and the wit to take precious soular power from the living. By using this power and pouring it into your former meat shell you get a chance to live once more.
But things on the other side are seldom this easy. Other beings from beyond view you as a trespasser and will protect their turf. Vengeful spirits form when your scaring goes too far, and demons living in the shadows will be after you.
Save yourself! At any cost?

\\\ Features ///
120.000 square meters of realtime shaded 3D world.
Supernatural game play where you die at the beginning of each level and spawn as a ghost.
A total of 20 nights for you to clear at three levels.
You'll encounter demons, ghosts, spirits and the ultimate bad guy of them all...
19 different types of supernatural interactive items that awaits your exploration.
8 different skills and items available in the crypt shop.
3D particle effects.
Online High Score feature. Retro style!


\\\ Notes ///
As the Spookening pushes the hardware to the limit it will only run smoothly on iPhone 4s and 5 or iPad4.

Wow, this looks fantastic in the video. Will await impressions from folks here, but I'm pretty sold right now.

Always weary when there's a "Shop" screenshot in app descriptions. I, for a change, won't be TOFTT. :/ Hope I'm put in my place and this turns out awesome. Awaiting impressions too.

For how it looks on video I don't see any reason, why it should be smooth only on Ipad 4th.

Hang on, guys, I am on it. Feedback later.

Doesn't matter anymore. Bought 12 or more games in the last 4 days. Best week for iOS in new releases this year. My iTunes account is nearly exhausted.

Hi, you seemed to be lost on the Internets.
This is TouchArcade, where 2$ for a game is too much, 5$ is an outrage, and 10$ or more is putting sugar in their car tanks whilst killing puppies.

Well, this fell into TA obscurity quite quickly.

Really quite surprised at how well thought out and quite excellently executed this game is. I don't want to post impressions just yet as Ive barely scratched the surface a few levels in, but I think this is completely void of IAPs. m i rite Vovin?

I picked this up today as I wanted a non-game centre game to play whilst on holiday from tomorrow. I thought it was going to be a gauntlet style game but you're a ghost going round scaring people. Only 2 levels in but it's bloody we'll made. The map is phenomenal and it requires some stealth. Don't see any IAPs as yet. My only gripe is no auto-rotate.

Yes, you are. No IAP found yet.
Quite nice tactical game here. Loving the graphics which work roughly like those in secret castle... some kind of dynamic perspective 3D.
Game is really fun, scaring those people is quite satisfying.
Soundtrack nails the theme and adds a lot of mood.

And yes, the map is pure awesome. This graphics are brilliant.
No auto-rotate because of the fake 3D-map - it needs fixed points.
