3 terrifying virtual reality horror games for iPhones

By | January 20, 2016

If you are a big fan of horror games, and you have an iPhone you are gonna like this, I’ve found 3 awesome terror games that will give you the chills and the 3 are ios and android compatible with google cardboard or any mobile VR headset.

If you are an iPhone user like me and you were looking for VR games you probably noticed there are not that many available for ios. Most of them are only android compatible. I know horror games are really popular in virtual reality, it’s the scariest thing I’ve experience I think, it just feel so real, virtual reality is made to play trick with your mind and it does it very well.

Let’s say you are sitting on your couch at home but what you are seeing in the headset, is you sitting on the couch, so it can get really scary because it’s just like you are actually there and when the horror comes in you just feel like taking the headset off, but you don’t because you want to finish the game even, if you’re scared as hell!

So I did some research for horror games on iPhone and I found 3 that if you like to scare yourself, you are going to love.

1. Insidious

You probably heard of the movie that it’s one of the scariest, you are in a room and a lady is talking in front of you, and because of what she is saying it gets so scary.

You are in a haunted house, and you are getting trapped in another world, where only you can get out ( That’s what the lady is telling you and she is convincing.)

Graphics are really nice, I’d say a bit slow to react compare to some other games, but that might be just my phone since it’s not the latest.

The experience in overall is really intense, so scary, worth a try and it’s available on ios and android.

This one is more of a horror film, 360° of course, it’s a bit like living a nightmare but you don’t wake up, of course, you can take the headset off, but there’s no point in doing that right.:) If you are here you wanna get scared real good and this one will do the job perfectly.

I really like their slogan too: ¨You can scream but you cannot look away¨, it gives me the chills just thinking about it. You cannot move in the game, but you cannot stop what’s gonna happens next either, I think you are like tie up in a chair or something and you can’t really see what’s is coming but you know it’s coming, trust me.

So I guess for the extreme you could tie yourself up to a chair as well, it could make the experience feel even realer. Well I guess that’s a little too extreme, haha, but imagine doing it to your friends or girlfriend, could be fun, just a thought, if you’re into this… 🙂

Really cool game, scary as hell worth a try available on ios and android as well.

3. Sisters

Sisters is a truly terrifying horror game made specifically for mobile virtual reality. If you like ghost story this is a really good one.  You are sitting in your living room just like you are actually at home but when the horror comes in it gets so scary I almost had an heart attack, haha I’m kidding but it’s really scary. and you can look around you 360° and strange things happen.

I was really nervous playing it because it feels like you are there and I am not lying I was sweating a bit…

There are things happening all around you and you can’t miss anything because it’s waiting for you to to turn your head, and look behind you, just because you want to….

It’s really a cool game as well, available on ios and android too.

What I could recommend you to play those games to get the best experience is with some good headphone, if they are noise-canceling it’s even better, and if you are really courageous, play it at night with all the lights close and of course when you are alone. 🙂

Also, don’t forget to read all the safety warnings.

Let me know what did you think or what did you feel, and if you know of any other scary horror VR game let me know in the comments below, I’ll be happy to hear your thoughts.
