Top 5 Horror Games for Android

Best ways to scare yourself witless on Android

We’ve all had horrific experiences on our Android phones, whether it’s having an argument with our partner, running out of battery, or figuring out how much we’ve spent on apps in a month.

Today, though, we’re talking about horror of a different, altogether purer kind. Games that make you uneasy and afraid to turn off the lights. Games that more often than not have ‘Dead’ in the title.

Join us, then, as we ponder the Top 5 horror games for Android. Not all are scary per se, but they’re bound by a common love of the dark stuff.

And, no, we’re not talking about Guinness.

Someone's tried to make an atmospheric third-person survival shocker for mobile?! The horror! Except Dead Space from EA is actually a brilliant game, with stellar graphics, brutal gunplay, and a truly creepy feel.

While Elder Sign: Omens is set in a universe created by the master of classic horror, H.P. Lovecraft, the game itself is anything but typical. It's a boardgame of sorts, with a complex rule set and a dice-rolling system at its core. For those who like a bit of intelligence with their scares.

Dead on Arrival presents you with a familiar zombie apocalypse scenario and tasks you with blasting your way through an overrun hospital. It's as much about slick top-down action as suspense and horror, but as we've seen elsewhere on this list, the two needn't be mutually exclusive.

At the opposite end of the scale to Elder Sign: Omens, we have Madfinger's Dead Trigger - a graphically lush and unashamedly dumb action-horror game. It's a tight arena-based first-person shooter, in which you fend off dozens of perfectly rendered zombies and purchase new guns. Bam!

Dead Runner is an extremely simple endless-runner played from a first-person perspective. What makes it stand out, though, is its spooky atmosphere. Pegging it through a murky forest with who-knows-what at your heels should definitely come with a public health warning.
