  • Summary: The Woods is a psychological first person action adventure horror game set deep within an ancient wood (3D and free roaming). You play a paranormal investigator tasked to uncover the mystery of the woods and lay to rest any spirits within. While avoiding contact with a sinister demon you must collect pages to a ritual book which can be used to send the spirits back to hell for good. The tension builds slowly but soon you will be running for your life, your only defence is your flashlight that can burn away spirits momentarily. The Woods is highly atmospheric and will have you terrified to look over your shoulder throughout. There's even a reaction camera built in to capture those jump scare moments utilising a “Picture in Picture” webcam image. The Woods has even been optimised for older devices allowing for a smooth playable experience on both iPod touch 4G and iPhone 4 even with per-pixel torch lighting. When using newer devices The Woods is simply stunning displaying thick vegetation thought out. Additional Anti-Aliasing has even been added to non retina displays (iPad 2 and iPad mini) compensating for the loss of resolution. A beautifully smooth and responsive first person control system has been specifically developed to elegantly control both player and flashlight giving a very natural feel to movement when peering into the dark dense wood. See the trailer on our support websitewww.thewoodsgame.blogspot.co.uk Features:- -Per Pixel Lighting on all surfaces even on slower devices. -Live Reaction Camera (not available on iPhone 4 and iPod touch 4G). -Retina support. -Anti Aliasing. -iPhone 5, iPod touch 5G and iPad mini support. -Large free roaming Wood. -Elegantly designed game changing first person control system. -Over 20 Pages to collect thought out the wood in various locations.

    The Woods does a good job of generating a significantly creepy atmosphere, but it has trouble sustaining it mostly thanks to repetitious gameplay. It can still be entertaining in small doses, but multiple back-to-back attempts and failures really kill the mood.
