    THEY SAID IT COULDN'T BE DONE. THEY WERE ALMOST RIGHT. BUT THE PAPA'S FINALLY HERE!

    ***Featured in Wired Magazine, the BBC, The Guardian and all over the web, Papa Sangre is one of the most eagerly-awaited iOS games of the year***

    YOU ARE LOST, DEEP IN THE DARKNESS OF THE LAND OF THE DEAD ...

    • Explore an entire world created in real-time using incredibly realistic 3D binaural audio
    • "See" with your ears — we'll teach you how, and then it's up to you to survive …
    • Turn, walk and run using a beautiful, intuitive interface
    • Escape back to the land of the living without getting eaten … or worse!
    • Solve Papa Sangre's puzzles and dilemmas
    • A fully accessible game, tested by the RNIB.

    You’re in Papa Sangre’s palace. His palace is in an afterlife that takes the form of a malevolent, unpredictable carnival: imagine a Mexican graveyard on the Day of the Dead — with the lights off. You’re the piñata for a host of partying monsters. They probably look a lot worse than they sound. You should count yourself lucky it’s too dark to see them.

    Your eyes are useless to you here — but your ears are filled with sound. And what is it you can hear … ? All you know is the soul of someone you love is in grave danger and desperately needs your help. Can you save them and make your escape or will you be trapped in the blackness forever?

    Papa Sangre is a true breakthrough in mobile games, created by an amazing team of designers and technologists in California and London.

    The monster that's unseen is far worse than anything that could be legitimately shown on screen and far more realistic too; Papa Sangre makes use of this 'theater of the mind' to create an immersive and chilling survival title.

    Papa Sangre really is one of the most unique games out there on the App Store. It's clever use of binaural audio and Hollywood quality voice acting and sound makes it a game that I will show off again and again to my friends.

    Papa Sangre is a true horror game, as you are stripped of your pivotal sense – sight – and plunged into a desperate survival situation where you can only rely on your ears. At first, it's disconcerting. But if you play in an ideal environment (quiet, low lights), Papa Sangre is a wonderful gaming experience.

    Papa Sangre is an engineering marvel, and it is a game that should be experienced by every iOS gamer out there.(if you have a 3GS/4/iPad)

    Papa Sangre is survival-horror, where you're cast into the land of the dead, using 360 degree sound to avoid creatures, save lost souls and avoid being torn apart; intense.

    For a while, Papa Sangre is a wonderful novelty. Unfortunately, the further you get, the more trial-and-error annoyance starts to put a crimp on your enjoyment.

    While it's conceptually brilliant, Papa Sangre isn't all that fun to play.

    A great horror game, and a outstanding new idea. The binaural sound makes you really imerse into this world. The narrator gets its job doneA great horror game, and a outstanding new idea. The binaural sound makes you really imerse into this world. The narrator gets its job done and frequently has dubius positioning (is she really a friend)? Expand
