The Woods

By 3 Cubes Research Limited

Open iTunes to buy and download apps.


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 see those jump scare moments utilising a “Picture in Picture” webcam image (external software required for recording).

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.

Very sad about this!

Iv been debating on getting this game for a week lol I dident kno if it was gonna b as cool as some reviews say. Well then I finally said forget it it's only $.99 cents so I bought it and honestly I was pretty pumped to play it an get a good scare but the freaking game won't even work!!!! I'm playing on an iphone 4 but in the description it clearly states compatible with iphone 4. So I don't what's wrong. It says may need to reboot an it will work fine. well iv rebooted my phone 5 times already deleted an redownloaded the app like 4 times an it still won't freaking work I mean are I kidding me. It just goes to the loading page an continuously loads... I Rilly think if I was actually able to play the game I paid for I'd most Lilly give it a 5 or at least a 4 cause I love horror games an there arnt many on the market an after watching waterwankings videos I was in but you have let me down 3 cube... 1 star I would give 0 if that was an option sence I kno you will prolly not fix this it's only fair to give u this ratting as I have been burnt with this purchase. SLENDER RISING RULES!!!

A few suggestions, but great game

This games epic. The first few times I was to scared to go past the house and I shut off the game :/. Amazing game though, beautiful graphics, nice audio. I had nightmares last night... That's a good thing. I woke up and saw the shadow from my computer on my tv and it looked almost exactly like the black demon ( the story says near nothing of the mom, who I think may be the black demon ) and I nearly flipped. Suggestions:

There's a big hole in the hill that I fell into and there's no way out... I had 13 pages... Maybe a ladder?

That darn black demon. Much to common. At a certain point instead of being scared of looking over your shoulder IF he's there, your scared because he probably is behind you.

Death. I can't tell if your supposed to be descending into h3ll or the worlds simply stretching before your eyes... Either way, it somewhat kills the scared moment when you get caught, maybe have the soul flip you around so your face to face with the soul or something similar. ( The death scene is actually pretty good but could be better )

Overall great game. Most definitely worth .99 cents. Buy it. And grats to 3 cubes for such a great game, but please at least consider my suggestions. Five stars.

Let me tell you what

Ok children. It's story time. When I first downloaded this app, I was pumped. I love horror games and this looked promising. I start playing, and the atmosphere is great. Get to the house. Still pretty good. But after that, it went downhill faster than a fat kid on a slip and slide. The whole time I was waiting for the promised jumpscares. But all I got was some nosy fella with a set of antlers who was just annoyingly all up in my business the entire time as I was trying to collect the 3 million pages. And we won't even start on the "ghosts of the witches" or whatever. Bottom line, they were pretty useless. As long as you didn't look at them you were fine. Same with antler man. I beat the game way to quickly. And in the end, the most joy I found was managing to push the spinning chair out of the house and watch it majestically sail and spin up and away out into the forest night. That's the only reason I gave the rating an extra star.
