Those of you who have a soft spot for games like Resident Evil, Alan Wake, Condemned, Silent Hill, and other creepy survival horror games will be happy to know that a new option has landed in the Android market. Courtesy of Phosphorus Game Studios, it’s called Dark Meadow: The Pact and it places you in the shoes of a character who wakes up in a hospital with your ordinary case of amnesia.

This hospital isn’t quite so ordinary, though, as no one else there except an old man who is too frail to break free. The reason he’s too frail is because an evil witch must be killed before whatever spell she has on that hospital is lifted.

It’s up to you to kill her using weapons like a bow and arrow, swords, and more. I’ve been playing the game on the Transformer Prime (our review is coming soon) and the Tegra 3-optimized version of the game really helps make it more captivating.

It was developed using the same engine that Gears of War 3 was developed with, Unreal Engine 3, and it definitely shows. Look no further than the trailer I’ve embedded above to get an idea of what I’m talking about.

For now, this one’s Tegra 3 only. If you have a Transformer Prime or any other phone or tablet with Tegra 3 check the game out in Tegra Zone and the Google Play Store. Oh, and it’s free — can’t really go wrong there! [via NVIDIA]
