Dark Meadow: The Pact
by: Phosphor Games Studio, LLC • 7.8K
You wake up in a hospital with no clues about how or why you did get there. Soon you'll discover that you aren't alone. The people who are also locked up there, like you, have been brought there to pay for the sins of the past.
Dozens of different creatures will show up to impede you keep going. All those creatures are ruled by a beautiful witch who's feeding herself with the living. You'll have to destroy her to be able to leave the old enchanted hospital.
Gameplay reminds other classic successful titles like Silent Hill and F.E.A.R. First-person view, you have to interact with objects and NPC by gesture-based controls. Open doors and drawers, grab items, weapons, shoot, dodge and read every signal. The game is visually stunning thanks to Unreal Engine 3 and Tegra 3 optimization. One of the highest quality plot and storytelling I've witnessed on a mobile game. Voice cuts and dialogues, as well as environmental music help you to get caught by the history from the first moment. It supports multiple languages.
Dark Meadow is something new, original, unexpected. Mobile gaming can be something else than platformers, puzzle and arcades. If you don't believe me, try this out and be ready to be horrified.
