Well, it's Tuesday. I just went outside and got soaked to the skin. Don't go outside if you don't like getting wet and live near where I live. In fact it's probably best not to go outside at all if you live near where I live, it's pretty grim around here.

And speaking of grim things, today has seen the release of Hellblade on PS4 and PC. It's a gritty hack and slash game with psychological horror elements. Obviously it's not going to come to mobile, but it did get me thinking - what are the best psychological horror games on the App Store?

So that's exactly what I've gone and written. A list of the three best psychological horror games for iOS. You can download them by clicking on the emboldened names below. And if you, inevitably, disagree, stick your own suggestions in the comments at the bottom of the article.

Forgotten Memories

Do you like Silent Hill? Well the developer of Forgotten Memories certainly did. This is a creepy horror game that borrows heavily from Konami's classic series. Not that that's a bad thing. I mean, if you're going to borrow you should definitely borrow from the best. There are spooky mannequins, weird shenanigans, and more than one moment where you'll probably soil yourself. You know, in a good way.

A pixelated adventure that sees you waking up in a strange house. You don't know how you got there, you don't know why you got there, and you're going to have to figure all of that out if you want to survive. There's a good deal of smart horror here, and it tells its tale brilliantly well. It's going to freak you out, and you're going to love it.

The School: White Day

A Soutgh Korean horror classic. It's set in a school, as you might be able to tell from the title, and it's really, really weird. You're not a super-powered murder machine here, and you don't have guns or knives. Instead you're trapped in a familiar place that's suddenly overrun with ghosts and demons. Basically you have to run for your life. Now that's really scary.
