I hope you guys know who Slender-man is. If not, googling it would be the best choice rather than me going to the details. I will just tell that he is a mythical evil character, 8 feel tall without mouth or eyes or ears. How scary is that! Slender Rising casts him to get your heart pumping but I’m sorry to say that, they’ve failed.
The idea is that you are alone in a scary town and you have to look for certain posters before getting swallowed by the slenderman. You have two maps: Cursed Ruins & Desolated Town which can be played in two modes. In endless mode, you just roam around the place and find as many posters as you can before getting killed while in the escape mode, you can get out alive if you find 7 posters.
Whenever you face the mystery guy, just swipe away from him or turn back to evade. This isn’t easy as he has a hypnotic stare and it kind off keeps you looking. You can play in the foggy daytime or with the all-green night-vision goggles or just with a flashlight at night. All the scenes are great, thanks to Unreal Engine, the guys behind some of the best environments in iOS games.
Unfortunately, the horror part of the game isn’t as worked out as you would think. Yes, it does give you creeps when he suddenly appears by the corners or the even better with the “He’s behind you!” poster. But, that’s all for one time and repeated plays gets really boring. I would surely love a story line and additional maps with more scary stuff because the current version just feels like roaming about a mystic surrounding just like the Epic Citadel app.
The controls are good with either touch or joystick controls. Sound effects really adds to the mystery especially the background grass, loud cries and the occasional coughing. I have seen many great reviews and ratings at the AppStore but I stand by my word that this is not worth the money I put in. For an extra buck, you can get Hysteria Project which is a much better choice in the same genre.
