Slender-Man Review (Modojo)

Chris Buffa (Modojo): Even if you avoid scary games at all costs, chances are good you've at least heard of Slender Man, star of the cult hit, Slender: The Eight Pages, a PC game that gave the survival horror genre the shot in the arm it so desperately needed. In it, players wander through a creepy forest at night in search of eight pages, doing their best to avoid the Slender Man, a tall and skinny creature with a knack for appearing out of nowhere and at the worst possible time, though if you play this title extensively, you already know there's no appropriate time for Slender Man to pop up. That said, we had high hopes that Rory Harvey's iPhone and iPad adaptation, called Slender-Man, would deliver the same terrifying thrills. Instead, it's one of the worst games on the App Store.

Slender Man is a fun little "game" on PC, but I can understand why it failed on the App Store...

...because it isn't really a GAME. It was meant as a simple demonstration that horror videogames CAN and DO work, and they CAN be popular. That was the designer's intention.
