I don't consider Dark Meadow a "copy" so much as a new entry in a young genre. A genre that it fits very, very well. Fans of gesture hack-n-slashers, gothic thrillers or both are in for a real treat.

Fans of horror titles will dig the atmosphere and attention to detail in not only the gorgeous Unreal engine environments, but also in the story left behind. If you enjoyed Infinity Blade and you're after something to bulk up your repertoire of Action-RPG slashers, you'd do well to check out Dark Meadow, just don't forget to heal up - it's a long walk back to where you were.

Even though Dark Meadow had some combat issues, I still enjoyed this game because it's easily one of the most visually impressive titles on the iOS. The decaying building that you explore has been wonderfully created and really creates this dark atmosphere with a touch of loneliness. If you enjoy the survival horror genre and enjoy titles such as Resident Evil or Silent Hill, this may be the game that you have been looking for.

So the story and voice work might be worth the cost of entry on their own, but the gameplay relies too heavily on Infinity Blade’s template. Judging by the excellent script, the developers have no shortage of creativity. So why didn’t they direct some of that creative energy into coming up with fun new gameplay concepts? Infinity Blade is great and all, but if you want to play a game in that style, you’re probably better off playing Infinity Blade. Still, there’s a lot to like about Dark Meadow. And we’re excited to see what Phosphor Games can do on iOS when they really let loose.

If only Phosphor Games had been bold enough to strike its own path rather than being in thrall to its clear inspiration, The Dark Meadow might have been a must-have rather than the fascinating but flawed adventure it has turned out to be.
