NOTE: If the game "hangs" at the blacksmith it's usually due to low-resource issues on your device. Try shutting down all background apps and freeing up some space before restarting your device. This should help fix the issue.
For the best experience we recommend you play Dark Fear on an iPad with a decent pair of headphones.
You wake up in pitch blackness. You have no idea who you are, where you are or how you got here - it's up to you to figure it out!
For horror game fans seeking out that ultimate fix, 'Dark Fear' delivers an immersive, frightening experience wrapped in a cinematic soundtrack and a dark, twisted storyline written by an ex-film industry professional. The game can only described as blend between RPG and adventure with a 2D graphical style similar to the classic PC games from the 1980s (think Myst meets Kings Quest). Its simplistic approach allows even the most casual gamers to gently unfold and enjoy its many complex layers of game mechanics.
Explore a diverse landscape filled with forests, mountains, lakes and deserts. Make allies in the local village, upgrade your weapon and armor, go hunting/fishing and fight your way to the truth by slaying your foes, solving puzzles and helping people with their problems.

Ratings and Reviews
This game should be way more popular! I rarely give 5 star reviews, this one definitely deserves it. I think maybe people are put off by the old-style pixelated graphics, but that is a big mistake. Especially if you are looking for a good adventure game that is also quite scary! I was surprised that a pixelated-style graphics game could be scary at all, but it certainly delivers. If the graphics were more realistic, it would've probably been too scary for me. It was just right. And I can't think of a thing to criticize about it, just like another great game, The Room. This game was fun, definitely worth the price, and I hope it gets more attention so this developer will hopefully make more super-enjoyable games. :)
A rare find - don’t let it pass
I originally bought this for my desktop, never realizing it was available on the iPad. The desktop was sooo much fun I decided to check and VOILA! I can not play this anywhere with my iPad. It’s dark/creepy with a really good story/plot to keep you interested. The gameplay is simple, but still engaging and the graphics are so retro & cool. I’ve paid way more for games that were not 1/2 as good, snatch this one up if you can.
This game is incredible. I read the reviews and wondered why they were praising this relatively unknown game so much. Figured it was worth a try and I was not disappointed! The soundtrack is gorgeous, there are legitimate jump scares and creepy characters/landscapes. The puzzles are relatively easy but the storyline keeps you interested and engaged. I can not recommend this game more highly if you love adventure games.
